The Cycle

Standard

image

Wind down
After a long week
Hours slip by
One, two, three
I never see you
[Only in my dreams]
And the kisses are few
Far in between
I want time to stand still
With me in your arms
Let’s forget about the daily grind
Or jobs and our chores
I want to stay in this moment we call the weekend
Before my eyes close
Because when I blink the moment ends
And I’ll have to face what I already know
We’re doomed to repeat the cycle
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
I can’t even remember how to smile
[On the inside]
So let’s just stay here
In our Saturday
And break the cycle now
No more heartache
I just want to hold your hand
No more pain
I just miss my best friend

Waiting (Re-Written for Out of the Ocean)

Standard

I’ve been waiting
For you to finally see
That you’re the only one for me
Got me on my knees
Begging you silently
Please just open your eyes.

Here I’m standing
Right in front of you
Pouring out my heart
But it don’t get to you
I’m screaming out your name
But you don’t hear
Please just open your ears

Come to me, oh, come to me
Come to me, I’ve been waiting

Follow my voice
To the shore
Hear me now
I’m waiting at your door
I can see a storm brewing
Over the sea
Can you see what I see?

I’ll protect your heart
I’ll never tear it
I will keep you safe
You can trust that
I will keep you dry
When it rains bad
Please, open your heart to me

Come to me, oh, come to me
Come to me, I’ve been waiting

I can’t keep waiting
For you to notice
I love you
The way she doesn’t
I won’t wait forever
Please don’t take much longer
To realize we were made for each other

So come to me, please come to me
I’ve been waiting, I am begging

I’ve been waiting for you to finally
See that you’re the only one for me

I re-wrote Waiting for Out of the Ocean, the sequel to What it Took to Realize/ Voodoo (inspired by Alexz Johnson) which is available for Kindle on Amazon. I had written a different song for Out of the Ocean, but I wasn’t very fond of it. That was when I realized I had a perfectly good song already written, so I took Waiting and personalized it for the character so it would fit the story!

Go to the original song Here!

Waiting

Standard

~

I’ve been waiting
For you to finally see
That you’re the only one for me
Got me on my knees
Beggin’ you silently
Please just open your eyes.

Here I’m standing
Right in front of you
Pouring out my heart
But it don’t get to you
I’m screaming out your name
But you don’t hear
Please just open your ears.

{chorus}
I’ve been waiting
All this time
For you to come around
And say, “You’re mine.”
I’ve been waiting
Always by your side
For your warm embrace
Just to say you’re mine.

Talking on the phone
You sound so far away
Even though I know, you’re just a town away
I can hear my heart
Pounding in my chest
Can you hear it on your end?

Always seemed so closed up
Never knew how
To unlock you deepest thoughts
To let them all out
Wish I could find the key
Please just open you’re heart to me.

{chorus}
I’ve been waiting
All this time
For you to come around
And say, “You’re mine.”
I’ve been waiting
Always by your side
For your warm embrace
Just to say you’re mine.

I can’t keep waiting
But you seem so close
Just wanna reach out
But I have froze.
You’re just an inch away
Wanna kiss your lips
Guess it won’t hurt to wait.

{chorus}
I’ve been waiting
All this time
For you to come around
And say, “You’re mine.”
I’ve been waiting
Always by your side
For your warm embrace
Just to say you’re mine.

I’ve been waiting
For you to finally see
That you’re the only one for me

Like a Violin

Standard

My heart is strumming in your hand
You play it like a violin
You’ve got my soul in your grips
Going to keep me hanging on your starship

Reach into the galaxy
Pull out a star for me
Burning in my chest
Where my love once rest.

You’ve got me under your spell
You play the craft so well
Hey there music man
Can you lead me out of this wonderland?

Down the rabbit hole
Bring me some tea
Go in for the gold
You’ve kept me empty

You play your harmony
Using my melody
As you pluck at the strings
My lungs are humming
I feel the music lulling me to sleep.

Reach into the sea
Play that harp for me
Once upon a time
Do I get a happy ending?

My life strums in your hand
You play my heart like a violin
I’m just a puppet to you now
Dancing on stage for your audience.

These are actually song lyrics believe it or not inspired by the music on Ermilia’s Listen & Write <——check it out!! Oddly after inspiring this writing, the lyrics don’t quite fit with the music :[ Oh well!

Can’t fall out of Love

Standard

~

I can feel the blood rushing through my veins

I can hear the pitter-patter of my heart

When I see your face or even one close to yours

I begin to fall apart.

~

{Bridge}

It’s time I let you go

Gotta stop dragging around your shadow

~

{Chorus}

Can’t fall out of love

Can’t get over you

No matter how hard I try

No matter how much I want to

I can’t fall out of love

I’ll never forget you

All I can do… is bid you ado.

~

I can hear your name in the wind

Your voice rustling through the leaves

I can see your eyes in the clouds

Waiting for a rainfall so I can drown you out

~

{Bridge}

It’s time I let you go

Gotta stop dragging around your shadow

~

{Chorus}

Can’t fall out of love

Can’t get over you

No matter how hard I try

No matter how much I want to

I can’t fall out of love

I’ll never forget you

All I can do… is bid you ado.

~

I can’t speak to you

It hurts too much

I can’t look at you

For the fear of your touch

Time to say goodbye to you

And maybe in time this will change

But I can’t hold on… anymore.

~

{Chorus}

Can’t fall out of love

Can’t get over you

No matter how hard I try

No matter how much I want to

I can’t fall out of love

I’ll never forget you

All I can do…

~

Can’t fall out of love

Can’t erase the past

No matter what I do

No matter how bad I want to

I can’t fall out of love

I’ll always remember you

All I can do… Is bid you ado.

Worn-Out

Standard

When you fall in love

You cannot fall out

Is that why

You make me want to shout?

I want to scream

At the sight of your face

At the moments we shared

Gone to waste.

I want to shriek

At the energy spent

Trying to figure you out

And your sly comments.

I want to squeal

With the frustration you brought

With the precious memories

You forgot.

I want to yell

To the heavens

For giving me a reason

To cry.

When you fall in love

You cannot fall out

That is why

My heart is worn out.
