The Rhythm of Love

I wonder if you'd think that I'd be worth your time
I wonder why I always search for what I never find
I think about your face, how your lips curve in your smile
I think about your features and the fire in your eyes
I think about how much I would love to make you mine
Then wonder if a place for me exists inside your life
I think about your words, oh how they're always on my mind
I think about your love, and how much I would stoke your fire

Given even half a chance, I'd give you my whole life
Because nothing is a sacrifice when you are on my mind
And every moment spent is always worth the time
Even though you don't agree, I think we're worth a try

It may be a mistake, but we won't know if it's passed by
I know that you are worth it, I know it deep inside
And even if it fails, I'll always think it's right
Life comes without a map, and must be discovered in the night

So take a chance and make a mistake if that's how our story goes
If we never try, then how can we ever come to know
If we're just wasting time with all the secrets we won't show
I try hard to deny it, but I feel in deep within my soul
You're the only one that makes the fires in my grow
And once we felt that fire in all the words we wrote

So make a mistake
If that's what it takes
For insanity's sake
Let's seize the chance to make
Our story start today

I know this may just be another hopeless rant
I know that deep inside you think there is no chance
I know that I'm alive when I rest my heart in your hands
And honey, there's nothing I'd like more than to be your man

Read between the lines and see things I say are true
I am so much more than I was before the day that I met you

So make a mistake
If that's what it takes
For my heartbeat's sake
To keep up with its rapid pace
Let's take the chance today
For the story we could make

There's no hidden message and there's no hidden truth
No subtle innuendo, every word I say is true
If it's a mistake, I'd like to make it with you

So make a mistake
If that's what it becomes
We need not feel ashamed
Because we have a chance at love

So make a mistake
If that's what it takes
Let's seize the chance to say
Our story woke today

So make a mistake
With me

What makes you think that?

I could've poured over this for hours while the song was on repeat, then only signed in long enough to post it, you know?
But you're almost right. I spent about 20 minutes typing this one.

I, however, should be the envious one. If I don't write it the moment I think it, then it vanishes forever in the ether of my mind.
You should consider yourself quite fortunate to be able to hold your thoughts long enough to take the time on your writing.
