Everything

Standard

Also close to the rainy season, 40 degrees and...

It’s a new day
You’re still you
And you’re still a mystery to me
I can’t read into you.

It’s a new day
It’s the same me
But I’m feeling a bit differently
I’m wondering, I’m doubting
How you feel about me…

It’s the twinkle in your eyes
The way your heart races against mine
The fire burning inside of you…
You’re the sunshine in a black sky
The air I need to breathe or I die
You’re the water I drink
You’re everything I need…
So what am I to you?

It’s still the same kiss
Still the same hug
The electricity is not gone
And I ravish in your warmth.

It’s still the same love
And it’s growing
But I don’t know if you feel what I’m feeling
But it’s so amazing…
Then I, I wonder, what am I to you?

It’s the twinkle in your eyes
The way your heart races against mine
The fire burning inside of you…
You’re the sunshine in a black sky
The air I need to breathe or I die
You’re the water I drink
You’re everything I need…
So what am I to you?

Am I the color blue in your sky
The medicine you take?
Do I make you feel alive
Or am I just another mistake?

It’s the way you smile at me
The sound of you breath when you’re falling asleep
It’s the way you shine…
You’re a midnight sunrise
The unpredictable tide
You’re the rain pouring down on me
You’re everything I need.

So what am I to you?
What am I to you?
What am I to you?
What am I to you?

It’s the twinkle in you eyes
You’re the sun in a black sky
It’s the fire burning inside of you…
You’re the air I breathe or I die
The way you’re heart races against mine
You’re the water I drink
You’re everything to me.

Too Bad

Standard

I don’t know how we got here
I don’t know how to escape
I don’t know why my heart
Keeps beating your name.
And it’s killing me…
And it’s killing me…
There’s a hole in my chest
That burns with every breath
But when you take my hand
It stings a little less
Because you heal me…
Because you heal me…
There are stars in your eyes
Like a rocket, together we fly
Too bad you are not mine…
I don’t know where we go from here
I don’t if we can move forward
Seems like we’re stuck where we are
In the realm of dirty, guilty hearts
And it’s killing me…
And it’s killing me…
I am a prisoner in your chest
Your rib cage holds me back
When you cry your heart turns blue
When I cry, I cry over you
Because we can’t be…
Because we can’t be…
There are stars in your eyes
Like a rocket, together we fly
All through space and time
Too bad you are not mine
Too bad you will never be mine
Because when our lips touch
And our eyes meet
There is no where else I’d rather be
And it’s killing me.

Burns Like Water

Standard

My love for you burns like water
Impossible but true
Your hands ignite the flame inside my chest cavity
A clear blue.
And it dances on a candle wick
Melting away the ice
That once encased my heart
Like a non-penetrable device.
Yet somehow you broke through
With the most precise slice.
Now the water dances on and on
Like a flame
Beautiful and pure
This love cannot be tamed.
Such a flame cannot be extinguished
Nor can it be contained
It will continue to burn on
Melting all the ice away.

Blue Waters (Summer 2008 re-write)

Standard

Original written 6/23/08:
I’m not dumb
I know you love me too
I can see it when I look at you
Don’t pretend you don’t feel it
When I can see the candle lit in your heart

The blue waters in your eyes
Fill me up and help me rise
When I’ve fallen down
You’re always around
To catch me in blue waters
You’re all that matters.

I knew it was you the day we met
Who I would love and never forget
When you’re next to me I can’t breathe
When you talk to me I can’t see
Anyone but you

The blue waters in your eyes
Fill me up and help me rise
When I’ve fallen down
You’re always around
To catch me in blue waters
You’re all that matters

The blue waters in your eyes
They capture me, and hold me inside
The currents pull me to a place
Only you can find
Someplace deeper than your mind

The blue waters in your eyes
Fill me up and help me rise
When I’ve fallen down
You’re always around
To catch me in blue waters
You’re all that matters.

Re-Write:
I’m not blind
I know you love me too
I can see it
When I look at you
Don’t pretend you don’t feel it
The way our hearts’ been lit

The blue waters in your eyes
Capture me and help me rise
When I’m feeling down
You’re somehow around
To catch me in blue waters
You’ve always mattered

I’m not dumb
I always knew it was you
My heart would forever belong to
When you’re around I can’t breathe
When you talk I can’t see
Anyone but you

The blue waters in your eyes
Capture me and help me rise
When I’m feeling down
You’re somehow around
To catch me in blue waters
You’ve always mattered

The blue waters in your eyes
Fill me to the brink inside
With so much love
I can’t get enough
Of your blue waters
You’ve always mattered


A Blue So Dark

Standard

On the brink of insanity

I pull you down with me

A smile and nod

That says I’m OK

A few wires crossed

You know I’m about to break.

I’m drowning in a cup-o-crazy

I invite you to come save me

With a show of my pearly whites

To ensure your trust

You flush them down

Yes, the pills are gone.

Your eyes contain concern

I shrug them off,

You silly girl

Your mother is not lost.

Drowning into a puddle

A blue so dark.

I take your hand

And submerge you with me .
