All I want


I thought I was meant to be alone,

that no one would love me half as much,

would stay forever.

I thought I'd found my true angel,

yet another angel in disguise,

when I was blind, you opened my eyes.

Not used to feeling loved, wanted, appreciated,

only needed, ignored and forgotten.

You look in my eyes, see all I hold inside,

my doubts and fears disappear.

You offer a priceless gift,

one I don't know how to accept.

All I wanted was solitude,

to find the serenity I've longed for.

All I wanted was to be free,

close that door to my heart,

keep it safe from those who would harm.

All I wanted was someone who'd stay,

wouldn't have to watch them walk away.

All I wanted was to believe again,

to trust and cry, to be seen.

All I wanted was to live,

to breathe without suffocating,

love without chains.

All I wanted was to hide, to run,

to be accepted, understood.

You allow me to keep my walls,

let me feel safe in my own mind,

safe with you.

All I want is for time to stand still,

to watch you sleep and smile,

lie in your arms forever.

All I want is to float on this cloud,

enjoy this feeling,

for this peace to last.

All I want is for you to be mine,

today and every tomorrow,

till the last star falls from the sky,

all I want is a future with you.
