Oops, I Dated a Ben

(Thanks, Andrew! I can’t believe we didn’t come up with that.)

If you’re missing the most recent dramatic season of The Bachelor as much as I am, then this post is for you. Since The Bachelor is perhaps the cheesiest reality show on television (thanks to the wonderful editors who make it seem like girls are having conversations with raccoons…), Boone and I decided to commemorate this cheesiness with a song in the same vein. We present to you “The Ballad of Ben and JoJo”…be prepared to take a musical trip back to 2000…

Songs I've Written

Away From Me

I wrote a new song! It’s called “Away From Me” You can listen to it here! And I’ve posted the lyrics below.

Wake me up with your cold lips
I never knew that love could feel like this
A vacant mask that you hide behind
The words you say to keep me blind

You fooled them all while you lied to me
Without the courage to let go of me

Stay –but away from me
I can’t ask you to leave
My courage is lost behind the shadow of what used to be
All I need is you to stay
Stay away from me

A broken heart caught in the undertow
A missing soul behind so long ago
You had to prove to yourself you weren’t wrong
All the while stringing me along

What’s lost is gone but what I know now
I never had it to begin with — how did you

Stay — but away from me?
I can’t ask you to leave
My courage is lost behind the shadow of what used to be
All I need is you to stay
Stay away from me

You hold me with a frozen touch
But just beyond the grasp I long for
I’d rather close my eyes than leave my heart an open door

So stay — but away from me
I can’t ask you to leave
My courage is lost behind the shadow of what used to be
All I need is you to stay
Stay away from me

I hope you enjoy!

Until tomorrow, fellow BFs!
