Half of Me

This is easily one of my more well-liked songs – which is great, because it has some of my favorite lyrical phrases in it. I love poetry, obviously, but there’s something about combining it with music that really brings out my best work.

Anyways, check out “Half of Me” below. Lyrics below the video!

Little pieces of my heart
Are scattered like an omen
Little shatters of my soul
I give away like candy

You can fly with the sea
If you become the torrent
I explode across the breeze
I never was not no one

Tiny fragments of my skin
Are floating in your matter
Just a segment of my blood
The red will try to make you mine

In the pillar of yourself
I reap the essence slowly
Taking chunks of you I need
This hungry, wilting zombie

Roll
No one
Breathe
Then pay the fee

Roll
Are you someone?
Reach
Nothing’s free

Won’t you taste the salty earth
That wraps around my being?
Can we fall into the foil
To eat the bugs and melt the leaves

I can’t lift the weight of disappointment, heartache
That crashes through the lonely
Only leave a little drop
A morsel, a seed

Roll
No one
Breathe
Then pay the fee

Roll
Are you someone?
Reach
Nothing’s free

Half for you
Half for me
And more for the rest of you
Take a bite
Have a feast
There’s more where I got it from
Cuz one plus everyone
Makes me

Roll
No one
Breathe
Then pay the fee

Roll
Are you someone?
Reach
Nothing’s free

All the tethers that I love
Are binding, stretching, pulling
All the marks, the scoffs, the need
They whisper to me to make it so

It’s not the time to meet the moist and soddy
Calls of rapture that surround you
No, I must remain in me
And dissolve
