River

Standard

When you kiss my lips
When you touch my skin
There is nothing like the rush of your current
When your hand’s in mine
And our hearts are ignited
I can do anything

Don’t you feel it too?
The energy that flows through

You’re my river
In a valley of dry land
You’re my river
Won’t you let me in?

When I see your face
When you say my name
I can’t help it, I can’t breathe!
Cause when you’re around
I lose control
And suddenly I can’t speak

Don’t you feel it too?
The energy that flows through

You’re my river
In a valley of dry land
You’re my river
Won’t you let me

Inside of your life
Cause you’re the sunlight
Shining in the night sky.
I don’t want to go back
To where I was before I met you.

Don’t you feel it too?
The energy that flows through me and you

You’re my river
In a valley of dry land
You’re my river
Won’t you let me in?
Won’t you let me in?
Let me in…

When I see your eyes
It begins again…

Why do you do this to me?

Standard

A song that I just wrote. Probably one of my most emotional ones in like forever. I was basically crying while writing this. So, thanks to Chester See who’s music inspired me to write this song which has been haunting me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I thought I was over you

I thought I was free

But when I saw your face

Smiling back at me

My wounds began to open

My heart beat too fast

I gripped onto his hand

And hoped the feeling wouldn’t last

*

{Chorus}

There’s a pit in my stomach

Growing with each passing second

My limbs begin to quiver and I’m sure I’m going to faint

I’ve acquired a fever and my body aches

I think I’m going to throw-up

Why do you do this to me?

*

When I saw you standing there

Your blue eyes looked at me

My heart began thumping wildly inside my chest

I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t I can’t breathe.

*

{Chorus}

There’s a pit in my stomach

Growing with each passing second

My limbs begin to quiver and I’m sure I’m going to faint

I’ve acquired a fever and my body aches

I think I’m going to throw-up

Why do you do this to me?

*

I’m just trying to get it down on paper

I can’t explain

The effect you have over me

Every time I see you any progress that I have made has been erased

I can’t even think.

Why am I so darn weak?

*

I hate that I can’t let you go

I hate that I will never know

What we could have been.

I hate the way you smile

I hate how your eyes twinkle

But worst of all

I hate that he knows.

*

{Chorus}

There’s a pit in my stomach

Growing with each passing second

My limbs begin to quiver and I’m sure I’m going to faint

I’ve acquired a fever and my body aches

I think I’m going to throw-up

Why do you do this to me?

*

Why can’t I let you go?

Years of rejection, you think I would know

How to finally move on

How to say goodbye

We no longer speak

But still, in your hands my heart lies.

Child of the Sea

Standard

It ebbs onto my skin

Covering me:

Its kin.

It swarms into my soul

Its mysteries

Make me whole.

We breathe in unison

In.

Out.

It draws itself across my body

In.

Out.

I beg it to take me with it.

Let me be a part of you.

A storm swells deep within it

Come my child

As it falls over me

Like a tsunami

Taking me adrift.

Taking me home.
