Heaven or Hell

Verse 1:

Through hell and back,
I’d spill out my heart to you.

Here, in our hearts

Are fragments of a heaven.

 

Chorus:

I spent my days fading away

Like your memories

Memories of us resurfaces.

The way I fell in love with you

Is all coming back to me now.

 

Verse 2:
Our safe haven: where has it gone?

With my eyes open,

I’ve been bruised, numbed, bent, and broken.

Can you help me carry on again?

 

Bridge:

Bury me.

Carry me.

Away, away, away.

Lead me to heaven.

 

Last-Chorus:

Anything but ordinary.

I followed you into the dark

Where the pain dissipates

 

Into our bones.

Distance

Folder: 
To My Wife

I would say I miss you

But you no longer care

You left long before your body

And left me alone with yourself

 

I'm always thinking of you

Everyone says you aren't worth it

Maybe they're right...

But I thought you were

 

I wish we could be “us” again

But do I truly miss you

Or simply the relationship we had?

I guess I'll never know

 

You've kept me at a distance

So far I'd never reach you

Now I suppose I've finally decided

To stop trying

Your World

Folder: 
2017

For the longest time

I wanted to be part of your world.

 

You were always just out of reach

and I stood in the background

looking in through the window

hoping you wouldn’t draw the shade.

 

Then one day you opened the window

and suddenly I was part of your world.

It was everything I had hoped for

and more.

 

My dreams turned into a reality

and everything was better than I had imagined.

 

I finally realized what everyone meant

when they said that dreams can come true.

I understood why people climb to new heights

just for a glimpse of something beautiful.

 

All at once I understood what it was like

to be completely and utterly in love with someone.

 

The day I became part of your world

I knew that I would climb every mountain

For just a glimmer of your smile.

 

I would write symphonies

in the hopes of hearing you sing

even if it was only one note.

 

Now that I’m part of your world

I can’t imagine life any other way.

Two Hearts

Folder: 
Confessions

Angel eyes,
James Dean smile,
and a Marcos Not A Hero shirt
He was scouring the room when he found me first
Shy guy type,
crooked spine,
My heart compressed and prepared for the worst
The second he stepped in to my world,
I found my tongue struggling for some words


"I'm a bad conversation,"
I'd say, gripping harder on my first Chardonnay
"How else can you be a conversation?"
he'd flash a smile, flicking the last of his Marlboro Lights

 

And right there and there,
two souls collided into a glorious explosion,
sliding to the grip of the claws of the night
on the way to the familiar road
of sins, misery, and scenic memories

 

After two nights of flying ballistics
and crippling thoughts once abandoned,
Two hearts soon mixed
into a sparkling August poison
A blue bourgeois Libra
And a yellow-bleeding Leo
A pair of delicate, diamond hearts
Defying fate, seeking Cupid's darts
Rising from the dead,
Rising from ash
Rising for the words once left unsaid

 

The thrill of it all is eating me whole 
I feel the shaking ground and the cold air blows
Omens, cautions, and warnings 
Red lights above us all blaring
A whirlwind romance, friends say,
is bound for doom and eventual fade
But his words are enough to hold on to
Words that make my demons fade into view
along with my bad past as I start anew
Away from the dark clouds 
that have crippled me.

A poem about a whirlwind romance.

Love Wont't Last the Night

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

Verse 1:
If our love can last the night,

Take your time for all the love you'll give.

I know in the end, we'll be together.

Best believe it, babe:  we're in love.

If you just take your time on us.

If you just take a chance on us.

I'll sing my heart out to you.

 

Chorus:

I never thought of what I said in years

Until it dawned on me that evening.

Help me move on without you.

Maybe, I'll call you to see

Where this will all lead.

It's better late than never.

Our love can last the night

If only you'd let me in.

 

Verse2:

Though, I'm afraid that you made

My world goes round. 

I know that our love won't last the night.

If it does, it's fate's play on us.

Maybe, I'm amazed by the way you are.

 

Bridge:

If our love won't last the night,

I may have the strength to face it all.

I used to believe in a world of our own

Until you left me waiting.

Dangle me by the strings,

You're my puppeteer.

Our love will last the night.

Use me as you will.

Reply to Oceanlane's "Love Won't Last the Night", to be honest, and Oceanlane's "I May Be"

Loneliness

Loneliness is being in the room with your love,

And realizing that there is no love in the room.

 

Loneliness is having a nightmare in bed,

And rolling over to realize that the dream was warmer than real life.

 

When I needed you

You weren't there

When I had to trust you

You broke my trust

When I held you up

You knocked me down

When I gave you everything

You took it all away

 

Loneliness is wanting to be understood,

But realizing that no-one else

Has the time or patience to discover

Who you really are

three little letters

i'm quite a simple girl

i only need one thing

with three little letters

 

y o u

with a smile so much brighter

than all the stars in the sky

you light up my life in the darkest times

all i need is you

 

y o u

with your godly hands

strong but soft; could destroy a city

or caress my face with the lightest touch

so gentle, yet so powerful

 

y o u

every single perfect imperfection

more breathtaking than a summer sunrsie

i adore your complexity

i adore you

Take Your Time

Folder: 
Band Lyrics
Verse 1:
Take time ‘cause time ticks
It still goes on long after we’re gone.
I cannot wait on you forever.
Take on me.
Take a chance on us.
Take your time ‘
Cause I’ll be waiting
With open arms and eyes.
Chorus:
You’re tugging at my heartstrings.
They’re coming all undone.
I can wait if you take your time.
Take me away from here.
All I want is a place
Where we can be together.
This love found me here.
Verse 2:
Take your time to figure it out
What it is that you feel.
I’ll be here waiting.
Sooner or later,
You’ll realize it should have been me.
Bridge:
Love found me here.
Until you take me on,
I don’t want to do this alone.
Take your time on us.
It’s a beautiful life
That we’ve got.
Smiling and speaking,
I thank God for you.

It is a response song to Buddy Holly's "Take Your Time". Enjoy?!

Eternally Your's 1

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

Verse 1:
I’ve buried my life with lies
False expectations of what they want
Instead of what I want
Now, it’s time for the mask to come off.
I shall confess to you
That I love you.
I’m eternally your’s


Chorus: Eternally your’s,
Hold onto me
Let the masks off
You cannot fool me babe.
Your eyes speak of our love.
Eternally Your’s


Verse 2: You say that you fell for me

Or was it me that fell for you?

Even if I lose myself,

Would you still be there?

Even if we end up on different paths,

Would you still be there?

Eternally your’s


Bridge: You said you were hurting

And I let you go.

Listen to the sounds of my heart:

Can you hear it?

All I can tell you is:

You gotta listen.

Listen to your heart.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This song is about two lovers who still are in love with each other, but, for some reason, broke up due to the circumstances. They’ll always love each other and have love for each other but they may be better off as friends than lovers if they ended up on different paths. It’s essentially about a relationship turned into a friendship.
