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…

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
