The Trouble with Green

It’s easy to let ideas in your head. Thanks Facebook. If I didn’t have best friends all over the United States I would delete you again. Or I might anyway. But alas, sometimes I give into you and your trickery. This could be about that. Or it could be about girl scout cookies…

I’m a click away
from a gnawing pain
It’s her hair, it’s her face
It’s your smile that drives me insane.
I don’t want to live in photographs
Stuck in someone else’s past
I’ve got my own secrets
I’ve got a timeline too
But your memories are
There for me to see
And now they’ll never go away.

Green is your favorite color
But it doesn’t suit me well
Now the monster’s taking over
And there’s no magic in this spell
Changing into something else
Not who I want to be
That’s the trouble with green
The curse of jealousy

This is a puzzle
With a dozen pieces missing
So it can never be complete.
And it’s impossible for me
To be a missing piece
Or be part of the game.
We would have to start a new
Try to play the whole thing through
But I don’t want to win your heart
I don’t want an excuse
I want to be the only one
In the end, and from the start.

Green is your favorite color
But it doesn’t suit me well
Now the monster’s taking over
And there’s no magic in this spell
Changing into something else
Not who I want to be
That’s the trouble with green
The curse of jealousy

I don’t want to be another version
Of a girl who has been here before
And I don’t want to know
What you’re doing
Who you’re doing it with
I’m a click away from a gnawing pain
That intensifies when I see her name
Green is your favorite color
But it doesn’t suit me well
No it doesn’t suit me well.
