I'm spun, just like a raisin in the sun
I'm fried up but the fun has just begun
And I swear, with all the love inside my head
I've gotta dish it out and gotta share
But lately I've been walking this road, searching for an end
But I've finally figured out

Ban me from your company
And I'll meet you where the sunlight meets the gold
Oh show me something I've never seen
And I promise I'll be right there waiting

I'm free, from all the judgment that you put on me
And I know it grows and I know it dies inside
I shake, just so I can get a breath
'Cause if they had it their way they would push me to my death
'Cause I've been walking this road, searching for an end
But I've finally figured out

Ban me from your company
And I'll meet you where the sunlight meets the road
Oh show me something I've never seen
And I promise I'll be right there waiting

And destroy what we've made this time
And watch it grow and die inside
Oh we'll watch it grow And we'll watch it die
Oh this time it's for real we'll watch it die
And we'll watch it grow and die (x3)

    To sum it up; this song means a lot, i'm sure to anyone. I listened to it for the first time today & it was posted on a very close friend of mine's facebook & i never really thought to listen to it. But i could connect right away, so to me... Myke wanted me to listen to this to make sure i knew he'd be there waiting for me. Because he did have to ban me from his company so that i would learn to love myself & know that he loves me. I went through a lot of selfishness with this boy because i thought i was depressed and i wanted to kill myself, but i kept trying to fight it because i wanted to be with him at the same time. Well, you can't have your cake & eat it too. I went to the hospital & got help & that's when he banned me from his company. Weeks went by & we finally wanted to give it another try. I expected too much. I was so selfish i stopped caring, especially about him. He could possibly die at a young age & i can't even say i stopped remembering, because i did remember. But i chose to put myself through pain by continuing on not loving myself. He wanted me so bad to love him & i did, so i thought. I do love him now, for he is a boy who wants to have a family & i do too. I respect him so much for everything. He his inspiring in so many ways, i want everyone to know who he is. I now can love. & i believe that he wants to watch a miracle grow, because i believe between us there is a miracle of love growing & were going to watch all of our hate we had for one another die. I believe in our relationship like i believe in sublime w/ rome, i'm glad rome came into the picture to continue the great love of music.
