Let Me In

Standard

With each step further

The cold creeps up my spine

Behind the bushy clouds

The sun hides behind.

I want to be apart of you

If you’ll let me inside

I want us to be one

Rolling, soundless tide.

I wade further into you

The freeze gripping my chest

With the cold pain

I hold my breath.

Suddenly there is warmth

And I know you have let me in

My muscles relax

I feel my body sinking… sinking.

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.

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
