Empathy By Nathaniel Seven

I can feel you
I can feel the hum of your vibe
I can hear the vibrations of your psyche
And because I am open to you I can feel your seepage
And it affects the way that I feel and the way that I touch
And the way that I think.
You're kind of like me, you burn bright and your burn inside out.
Your emotions can be my anchor,
Just like they can be my wings.
I can feel your heart and I know you can feel me because you've got empathy.
You can feel the way that I touch.
You can feel the way that I feel.
And the way that I think. Because you're kind of like me.

Use Friendly By Nathaniel Seven

I'm a hard pill to swallow and I know I'm pretty shallow
My words will strike you as hollow.
You'll go through withdrawals if I leave you.
Poisoned companionship.
Symbiotic relationship.
I'm like a callous prescription,
A meth addiction.
You want know why you're with me yet you continue to kiss me.
