Ruby - Astari Boedikoentjara
I read your sweet words on the screen
enough what I’ve seen
I bet you wish you were there
right where she’s always been
She’s had her head in the clouds
I don’t remember
the last time I cried in someone’s arms.
Perhaps I’m just trying to forget
in order to remain strong.
There are times you must be on your own.
Call me by my name
Know who I am
It’s my identity
if you wish to speak to me
It’s a simple request
Oh, you're so dying to be right
assuming us in complete denial
clearly begging for that spotlight
Your accusations are beyond wild
way out of line
Fiction sells better these days
It keeps you guessing anyway
It depends on how well we craft
and if you happen to be pretty daft
For us, it's entertainment
What you choose to believe
will affect how you perceive.
A picture’s worth a thousand words,
or possibly less or more.
There’s more than meets the eye.
Losing track of time,
does it even exist?
Nothing comes out right,
not...with a lot to miss.
Body on autopilot.
So you want to get to know me,
but just to find any flaws to see,
before you judge as you please?
I’ve read you first.
It’s the environment
I’d rather not be in
full of such impossible demands
and scolding remarks
for my lack of perfection
I sometimes fall asleep
and find myself there again
back to the same quiet streets
and my two best friends
I miss those peaceful streets
You say it's just a talk,
like normal people making a conversation
It's part of being social,
despite the annual scrutiny and judgment
A house, a family
All the joy they bring
Will they always represent ‘home’?
