Hey maybe

Maybe this was a high school song
Something stupid for all our wrongs
And maybe we wouldn’t have lasted long View full article »

Perfect Neverything

I know it’s my fault you never kissed me
I know it’s my fault I didn’t try
Every chance we had
I chose to die inside

No one saw past me smiling
Only you would ask me why
Your midnight calls in secret
With strangers by our side

You played the music I couldn’t sing to
Shared your candle when I was dark
And I held your hand when you asked if we could dance

With our plans made for forever
And these dreams from yesterday
I should have spoken
We should be ours today

But if you would hear me now
Our promises of everything
I will say all the words
For you my heart will sing
We have waited far too long
For some perfect neverything
And if tonight I can’t hold you
Forever will pay the price

And I know it’s been too long now
Someone else has said they do
But you don’t want the dreary
Your heart still wants me too

All I want is for you happy
All I need is in your smile
And if you need a drop
My heart will bleed a mile

Just for your music I will sing to
I’ll make a light when yours goes out
Take my hand, I’ll lead you out to dance

But if you would hear me now
Our promises of everything
I will scream all the words
For you my heart will sing
We have waited far too long
For some perfect neverything
And if tonight I can’t hold you
Forever will pay
Forever is our chance’s price

There might be a million reasons against
And all the things we should have said
There might be someone’s broken heart
But we should have never been apart
There might be what’s always been
It’s always you and I again

But if you would hear me now
Our promises of everything
I will scream all the words
For you my heart will sing
We have waited far too long
For some perfect neverything
And if tonight I can’t hold you
Forever will pay
Forever is our chance’s price

Late night lyrics…

Late night work in progress for my Midnight Muse. Here’s hoping she helps me write the rest. View full article »

hold me down

you dance with me at midnight
after a hundred days of silence
you put your hand on my chest
so i can feel you steal my breath
we feel the songs
we are the show
surrounded by jealous strangers
anyone that sees us knows View full article »
