The Taste of Heartbreak

Standard

The taste of heartbreak on my tongue
Is like cherry cough syrup
The acid climbing up the walls of my throat
Burns
Just like your lack of words.

Here I am and I gave you my all
And for what reason
When you can’t be bothered to talk

Well I have fallen
Now I’m crashin’ and burnin’
Over you
No more “I love you”s
No more begging for you to see
When I’ve got the taste of heartbreak on my teeth

Oh the foolishness
How I wanted to be…
Oh the silliness
How I pretend not to see
Your lack of affection towards me

Here I stand and I gave you my all
For what reason
When you can’t be bothered to call?

Well I have fallen
Now I’m crashin’ and burnin’
Over you
No more “I love you”s
No more begging for you to see
When I’ve got the taste of heartbreak on my teeth

Can’t turn around, we can’t go back
I want to hide my face, cover my eyes
Because when I see you I know my chest will ache

Here I kneel at your feet and I gave you my all
For what reason
When you could care less where I fall?

Well I have fallen
Now I’m crashin’ and burnin’
Over you
Over you
Over you
No more “I love you”s
No more begging for you to see
When I’ve got the taste of heartbreak on my teeth
No more loving you
No more asking for you to love me
When I’ve got the

Taste of heartbreak on my tongue
Is like cherry cough syrup

Breath-Taking

Standard

Red rose petals

falling

falling

As she reached for her book

sinking

sinking

She waded in the river

not caring

not caring

To get wet.
Her delicate fingers

reaching

reaching

For rim soaked pages.
Tears

streaming

streaming

Down her flushed cheeks.
Her black hair

skimming

The water, waist deep…
She was breath-taking.

My Love

Standard

From the moment I saw you

I was in love

And I carried it

For so long

I tried to give it to you

But you would turn it down

Even when it looked like you wanted to accept

You wouldn’t let me know

So I carried it around

Holding it safe in my heart

Until you were ready

Until I was crippled from the hurt

Eventually I could take no more

And just as I was ready to set it free

You admitted defeat

From the moment you kissed me

I knew I was in love

I am trusting you now

With my fragile heart

Please be gentle

Don’t let it fall apart

Please keep it safe

In the haven of your arms

Take The Leap!

Standard

Tried to let you go
Tried to move on
Never really could
Always held on
To the little amount of hope inside.

Tried to walk away
But my feet never moved
Tried to take a step
But cement was like glue
Always keeping my faith in you

{bridge}
Now here we are
And you’re just a kiss away from me
Never been more sure
Of what my heart was telling me

{chorus}
It’s screaming, “Take the leap.”
I ask it, “What If it breaks me?”
“We’ve been broken before
And we always bounce back
You’ve been waiting forever to take his hand,”‘
It screams, “Just take the leap!”

Texting on the phone
All night long
‘Till we fall asleep
At the sound of my ringtone ringing in my ear.

Wake up to the thought of you
And my face is flushed
Getting ready for the day
With a big smile on
Because I know you’ll text me soon.

{bridge}
Now here we are
And you’re just a kiss away from me
Never been more sure
Of what my heart was telling me

{chorus}
It’s screaming, “Take the leap.”
I ask it, “What if it breaks me?”
“We’ve been broken before
And we always bounce back
You’ve been waiting forever to take his hand,”
It screams, “Just take the leap!”

Falling down faster and faster
(take the leap)
The ground is getting closer and closer
(take the leap)
Will I fall? Will you catch me in your arms?
(take the leap)
Ah, who cares!

I’m going to take the leap
Don’t care if it breaks me
I’ve been broken before
And I always bounce back
I’ve been waiting a life-time just to hold your hand
I’m going to take the leap.
