60 Seconds Part 1

Folder: 
Band Lyrics
Verse 1: 60 seconds is all I have/to see this through/60 seconds is a story/that is enough with you and me/Don’t you let me go
Chorus: Even if you’re hurting/know that I’ve got your back/60 seconds is all I have for our story/Help me carry on/Lead me out of darkness
Verse 2: Out into the light/I walk towards/the hesitant you/your memories of me/have become cold/I can see it in your eyes/that I am not the one for your anymore
Bridge: Give me 60 seconds of your time/It is all I need to write this story/In it, are our hot and cold moments/Both of which, you gave me
Last-Chorus: Our last goodbye was bittersweet/It tasted like the tobacco on your lips/’Cause you got me falling for you/Over and Over again/Give me 60 seconds/to write a new ending
Author's Notes/Comments: 

Song response to Kim Sung Gyu's song: "60 Seconds" (A Korean pop song with rock elements). Look up the English subtitles on YouTube.

Heartbeat

Folder: 
Band Lyrics
Verse 1:
With your heartbeat
Aligned with mine’s
Nothing can stop us now
I can feel your heartbeat
whenever we are together
Chorus:
I thought it over
I ask myself:
”Why Did I fall in love with you?”
Your heartbeat beats with mine’s
Hearts entwined, fate’s play
Let us hold onto this memory forever
Verse 2:
This is more than a dream
it’s a dream come true:
the day we met
was a hit and run
I could be in love
and I just don’t know
But you got me singing
these songs of love for you
Bridge:
This is my wonderland
A place where you and I can hide
All I want is a place
where we can be together
Your heartbeat, aligned with mine’s
there’s no stopping us now
our heartbeats as one
won’t you finally seal it with a kiss?
Author's Notes/Comments: 

“Heartbeat” symbolizes when two lovers become one or as literature have people say: “They become joined at their souls” almost like a “soulmate”. This will be a band song for my friends and I to sing to once we get the band started.

Sometimes the places my steps take me

are exactly where I wanted to go

and I show up with my soul on my sleeve

carrying quiet and no tragedy,

no poetry.

 

Sometimes the places these roads lead

take me away from you,

the light bleeds into too many corners

I am terrified of being caught in.

 

We get so much more used to the dark,

don’t look down,

don’t look up,

don’t look

because you can’t tell the difference,

everything is

so

the same.

 

I pick apart the silence and the black

and somehow I keep getting little squares of sunshine-

I am not good at being alone.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

I win every day

when I get to wake up next to you.

Longing for You

Verse 1:

Though, I long for you,

I cannot be with you.

Our paths are entwined.

If they ever cross,

Know that you are my destiny.

Fate only lets us meet

One another in this world.

 

Chorus:

I'll be your memory.

Let it enfold you.

Let it live on.

Don't you forget about me.

'Cause it's a beautiful life

That we have got to live for.

 

Verse 2:

I see your smile.

I hold back the tears

FRom the day I lost you.

Memories etch at my heartstrings.

But I know that it's over for us.

 

Bridge:

If you can take me on,

I'll be your everything.

It's a beautiful life that we've got.

I thank God for

Sending you to me.

Back to You

Verse 1:

Someday, I'll find a way

Back to you.

Shine on me.

I'll be on my way tonight.

Someday, these words and feelings

Will mean a thing to you.

 

Chorus:

I never had a dream come true

Until the day I met you.

So, tell me if we're better off as friends

Or lovers of the future?

Hold me tonight,

'Cause I cannot help missing you.

 

Verse 2:

If you can make me somebody,

Can you take on me?

Take me with you.

This heart, mind, and soul

Belongs to you.

Why do you make me so?

 

Bridge:

Day by day,

I think of us,

If you can take me on,

I'll be your everything.

If you love me,

Show me

What I cannot see.

For, I'm your's to keep.

For eternity.

Daydream

Verse 1: Day by day/In my heart/It’s always you/So, come back to me/I won’t ask why you left/Or what you did
 
Chorus: My only wish/My only regret/Is letting you go/”I love you” wasn’t enough for you/Still, I hold onto you/In my heart/Can you hear me now?
 
Verse 2: With nothing to give/I hold onto you/I’m missing you/Because I could not/Say those words/We broke up
 
Bridge: Still, I imagine you/by my side/I promise my life for you/I cherish my life with you/Won’t you come back/to the one who waits for you/now, you’re so far away/you’ve become just a faded memory in my mind

Castoff

Folder: 
2017

I am not an easy question

or a hard answer.

I do not solve

even when I try.

I drop the gifts

I try to give,

the things I try to fix.

 

Stare at this too long

it’ll make your eyes hurt

you can run away blind

but they’ll see you stumbling.

 

Touch me too long

I’ll smell gasoline on your hands

and for years run toward leaks

just to watch all the forests burn

 

Hold this too long

it might stick to your fingers

leave scars and bruises

and pieces of castoffs

you I once thought you wanted

 

When the dust settles

you will have no excuses

not to write me down.

Holes

Verse 1:

Holes in my heart

Become scars of the past.

A scarlet letter

Is what you see.

I count down the days

From losing you.

You're still a bullet in my heart now.

 

Chorus:

With each breath that I take,

I miss you more.

With each passing day,

Not a day goes by

THat I don't think of you.

I hold you close to my heart.

I wonder if you feel the same

 

Verse 2:

Find me here in your arms.

The holes in my heart

Are like bullets.

They will ricochet

Whenever we're apart.

 

Bridge:

Is this what you wanted?

You're my remedy.

For the holes and 

Bullets in my heart.

I feel safe

Whenever we're together.

Not one single tear

 

 

Not a tear will out a sigh,

Not a tear will hold goodbye,

 

Not a tear will grace my cheek,

Not a tear for then I'm weak,

 

Not a tear will drip and fall,

Not a tear to bawl then call,

 

I will have the driest eyes,

Colder than december brides,

 

Yes I will know no tears for you,

For if I'm asked- I'll answer who!?
