  • 60 Days

    I let the snow fall through the cell walls,
    Getting hit with the cold sweat, gotta keep calm
    Keep the long breaths coming,
    Do not stop the drumming of the heartbeat.
    Concrete running on black ice
    I've fallen for you harder then I ever have before.
    I'm calling for you, never have I ever felt ignored, until now
    As if I was lost then found
    I found how
    Love can keep you driven and risen from underground.

    How you gonna walk away
    I thought you were here to stay
    So when did you decide to change
    And how am I the one to blame (x2)

    How you gonna walk away..

    Down, down digging, to uproot forbidden fruit
    I'm getting sick to my stomach now when I think of you.
    This liquor's hard but I'm sure that I'm immune to it
    Thought we'd get married? Liar, liar, I'm refusing
    How could you ever be so committed and then lose it
    I'm reminiscing on past panned out pollutants
    This message was the byproduct of my confusion
    Now I'm packing up all of our loose ends..
    I'm driving cross country from LA through Houston
    The mountains and state lines, my mind set on moving and
    60 days of love are gone, I think I made improvement
    One step at a time with occupied mind on my producing.

    How you gonna walk away
    I thought you were here to stay
    So when did you decide to change
    And how am I the one to blame (x2)

    How you gonna walk away..

    We couldn't have been anything less then picture perfect
    It would've been worth it but you rejected and reversed it
    And as I look this over, there had to have been a purpose
    In a pleasing deception, diverting my focus
    But the potential so energetic was underdeveloped
    So connected and co-collectively over-kinetic
    And never will I ever regret it, the threat of affection forever resented. I won't let this get me down.
    The walls will close in as the tunnel is envisioned
    Vignette, forget the rest in circumvention
    Just listen to me one last time,
    I'll write this rhyme, unstrap my binds and walk freely for the rest of my life
    I'll open doors, forward in the next chapter
    Rapture, burn page after page after
    Faster then you can raise the flag to half-mast
    Lambasted for the last time and it's time you face that fact.

    How you gonna walk away
    I thought you were here to stay
    So when did you decide to change
    And how am I the one to blame

    PS: I wrote this song from my cousin's point of view. At this time in his life he was going through a really rough break up. He was actually the one who produced and mixed the song linked above. Enjoy!
