Your's To Keep Part 2

Verse 1:

Etearnally, I'm your's to keep.

Just say we're together, babe.

If I knew you were mine to keep,

I wouldn't have wasted time.

 

Chorus:

Take a chance on me.

Take a chance on us

What have we got to lose?

You're mine to keep.

 

Verse 2:

Don't be afraid of this love.

You don't have to fear this love.

Where there is love, there is peace.

I'm your's to keep.

 

Bridge:

Days go by.

I thought I heard you call out my name.

But, it was in vain.

How I long to hear you say the words: "I Love You."

 

Last-Chorus:

Are you afraid to love someone?

Do you have wounds and scars in your heart?

'Cause you've been hurt before,

I promise I won't hurt you.

For, I'm your's to keep.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this song today as part 2 to the song: "Your's to Keep". It's inspired by Demi Lovato's "Give Your Heart a Break" and Angela Aki's "This Love." Check out those songs. Those thug at my heartstrings.

Leaving You Once Again (Original)

Verse 1:
I have witnessed many having to say their final farewells and goodbyes once and for all.

Ships starting to arrive on the dock,

Horns blowing nad tooting within the distance,

To inform passengers

Soon after to abroad the ship.

Anchors dropping into the sea,

To stabilize the boat.

Putting it on balance.

 

Pre-Chorus:
Such a hefty wound, it carries within one's heart,

Only coming to realize that later on...

 

Chorus:
Words left unspoken,

Need not be said.

Evidently, our guilt takes control

Controlling our emotions in a split second.

Closing down and narrowing is thse walls

One hsa built as a lifesaver

To ensure they are alive and living.

No risk being lost and isolated at sea.

 

Verse 2:
A wounded heart so vanished at sea,

Flowing freely across the tranquil ocean waters.

 

Bridge:
Amid the breeze flowing,

Tides rolling and crashing before us.


2nd Chorus:
Its illumination guided me

To the path I should have chosen and ended up with.

Best believe it:
Sometimes, we all are not necessarily lazy.

More along the lines of discouragement.

Not necessarily smart or intelligent.

Just have our priorities straight and in order.

We are average.


Last-Chorus:
So, in the end, the ocean is turbulent and calm as it can be.

Let loose your wings...

Fly away into the distant skies

Overhead the ocean in our paths

Somehow, we manage to get through it all.

Close our eyes...

Dreaming of flying away...

Spread our wings and fly...away!

Free at last with our wings outsretched.
