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.

I have heard they whisper about me on the corner

and so I go there at the same time every night

to find out who I need to be tomorrow.

 

I have learned this lifestyle.

 

I have learned not to hate the mirror

because I built her myself,

gluing all the pieces I know together.

 

I have learned to believe my own worth-

how much I am

and how they see me.

 

But no matter how much I swear I love myself

I will always switch out the navy dress

when I see her in shorts,

I will twist my hair

to hide the color I thought I wanted,

there is some kind of comfort

in standing out by being exactly what they want me to be.

 

I am only known for all the words I react to

until the saltwater swells from my lungs

and they tell me

I am so good at crying myself into existence.

 

I am built of the bottle caps their hands ricochet off me

I process the world like looking in the mirror and

redeveloping that land with a touch that isn’t mine.

 

I am conjured from their thoughts of me.
