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.



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.



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.



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?



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.
