I wanted to liberate myself from you
Tear at the pages you wrote inside my book.
But I couldn’t
Because when I grasped the pages
I realized that the ink had bled through
Leaving scarred marks
Forever imprinted on my soul.
I can’t make you love me
I can’t get your heart beat with mine
I can’t give you everything
but I promise you one thing
I’ll love you til the sun refuses to shine
All that matters is the here and the now
I promise to love you, just tell me how.
I’m just waiting
for a signal
just waiting for
to tell you that
I love you
Sometimes I tell myself that it’s alright
that things are headed somewhere good
but it’s not the cause of my endless fright
I’m scared it doesn’t end up the way it should
Then the day fell in love with the night
and it all just seemed so right.
There’s something in the rain that’s tranquil
and I’m sure that it’s something good
Sometimes I need to be thankful
because nature’s working the way it should
Utter a word, I want to hear your voice
Sing me a song, make me feel the melody
Your lips are my body’s sole vice
As I stand here alone, it’s you I want to see
