Two songs by j_on_lj, both about 12 years old. I provided a teeny bit of help with the lyrics, but they're really Geoff's and they're fucking brilliant!

So Click the big, bold titles, and enjoy...

"Country Song"

I don't know what to do

I wanna be with you

 But it's an impossibility

 To make that reality

 Come true

 

 (You see) there's someone else

 To whom I gave myself

 (And) though I have all these regrets

 This is what I get

 Oh well

 

 This ain't how the story's supposed to end

 But here we are

 Wishing that I didn't want to say

 Your place or my car

         But the choice has been made

         The plans are all set

         All of my friends

         Are losing their bets

         And I can spend my time

         Touching you and

         Loving her

         Or here at the bar

 

                I don't know how to say

                I don't want this to end this way

                 And it's not that this is bad

                 Whatever 'this' we once had

                 Hasn't gone away

 

                 This isn't how I wanted this to end

                 But watch me now

                 Trying to forget all this (building)

                 Somehow

                 But I don't want to forget

                 I want to recall

                         The smell, and the touch, and the

                         Taste of it all

                         And I can spend my time

                         Losing her and

                         Holding you

                         Or here at the bar

 

                         Something's wrong - NO!

                         That's not quite right;

                                 Everything's gone wrong

                                 But which is right?

                                 Being with the one

                                 To whom I'd trust my life

                                 (Or) Being with the one

                                 Who I (softer) asked to be my wife

 

                                 I don't know why I feel like this

                                 Like I can't breathe without your kiss

                                 Like without you I'm diseased

                                 The way your eyes tease me

                                        Is what I'll miss

 

                                         This ain't how the story's supposed

                                         to end

                                         But here we are

                                         Wishing that I didn't want to say

                                         Your place or my car

                                         But the choice has been made

                                         The plans are all set

                                         All of my friends

                                         Are losing their bets

                                                 And I can spend my time

                                                 Touching you and

                                                 Loving her

                                                 Or here at the bar

I don't think there's a songwriter in our generation who could write a better line than, "Wishin' that I didn't want to say, your place or my car?"

"October"
I woke up shivering
And watched my breath spill from my mouth
And kicked myself with a frozen foot
For long ago not moving south
And I thought of just what kept me here
Instead of sleeping on the sand
I gave up cool margueritas
For the warmth of your hand

And I tried everything
To keep the fire hot
Thousands of candles to make the inside
As warm as the snow was not
And I thought I thought of everything
To make our bond an airtight seal
I could change the climate
(but I couldn't) Change how you feel

(Your) Hot hands
(And) Cold heart
Were touching me softly but
  Tearing me apart
Don't start
(Because I'll) Never be warm again

I guess I should've seen
The cold reality
The first time I saw ice in your eyes
As they burned into me
But despite all the heated dialogue-
Frozen logic, frozen views
I still saw the warmth inside
The coldest part of you

(Your) Hot hands
(And) Cold heart
Were touching me softly but
  Tearing me apart
Don't start
(Because I'll) Never be warm again

   Sometimes
   You have to face the cold, hard fact
   That the one you shared so much warmth with
   Is never coming back
   (And) All I ever wanted is
   The feeling of your warm, wet kiss
   And to know our steamy promises
   Were more than just hot air

I don't care if I never
See the sun again
It only makes me shiver
And want to return to when
The leaves were falling colors
A million unfilled balloons
In the beginning of October
I never saw the end of June

(Your) Hot hands
(And) Cold heart
Were touching me softly but
  Tearing me apart
Don't start
(Because I'll) Never be warm again
Never be warm again
Never be warm again
