Permanent Place

You aren't just time that I'm wasting;
You aren't just a smile on my face.
This home you and I are building,
It is a permanent place.
You aren't just one among many;
You aren't just a childish phase.
You aren't just someone to hold me;
You are my permanent place.
And if you should leave,
I would have to leave too,
Because now my life
Is tied to you.
And if you should cry,
Then I would cry too,
Because my heart and my soul
Are tied to you.
You aren't just a hand in my hand;
You aren't just a good looking face.
You aren't the cheap off-brand;
Babe, you're my permanent place.
And if you should leave,
I would have to leave too,
Because now my life
Is tied to you.
And if you should cry,
Then I would cry too,
Because my heart and my soul
Are tied to you.
You are my permanent place.

Darling, I Love You

Your heart
Is the biggest heart I know,
And your hand
Is the only hand I hold.
Your smile
Is the brightest smile I've seen,
And your voice
Is the sweetest sound to me,
And in case it isn't clear
I want to say for all to hear
Darling, I love you.
Darling, I love you.
Darling, I love you.
Your home
Will be my home one day,
And your name
Is going to be my name.
My lips
Will be your lips to kiss,
And your kids
Are gonna be my kids.
I'm sure you've guessed by now,
But if you haven't yet somehow,
Darling, I love you.
Darling, I love you.
Darling, I love you.
Your heart
Is the biggest heart I know;
Where you are
Is where I want to go.
And I've said it before,
But I can't help saying it more;
Darling, I love you.
Darling, I love you.
Darling, I love you.

My Wings

You love me like
My flaws aren't as big
As I thought they were,
And I don't have to be sorry
For my every word.
I can finally fall asleep
Without being afraid,
Because I know that you'll
Be there when I wake.
If the ground dissolves
Beneath my feet,
You're the only wings
That I'll need.
I can walk on water
And brave Hell's flame
When on the other end
I hear you calling my name.
Just keep doing
What you already do;
I don't love someone
You could be;
I'm in love with you.

Worth The Wait

When you came into my life
You chased the storm away;
Now everything is golden
Where it once was gray
I can't seem to stop smiling,
And I don't know what to say;
We both know I'm not perfect,
But you love me anyway.
My whole life I've been running,
But you make me want to stay,
And if this is a dream,
Then I hope I never wake.
When I thought that I was lost
You showed me a new way;
I had given up all hope,
But you were worth the wait.

The Wolf And Me

Are you happy with yourself?
You don't seem happy with anyone else.
Maybe you're just tired of us all.
I can't say I mind;
I've felt the same way for a long time.
There's still some things
I just can't say out loud.
But are you lonely now?
I still get that way somehow.
Maybe that's why the wolf
Howls at the moon,
And even now, I can't help
But talk to you.

Some Feelings


I posted this once, then decided I didn't like it and reverted it to a draft for some reason. Here is is again, unchanged from before. :P

I don't sleep on my thoughts;
They sleep on me.
They weigh me down
Like a blanket of bricks.
I'll be alright;
Just stay by me.
I always forget
You're on my side.
I don't mean to make you
Feel low;
I keep going down,
Cuz I don't know where else to go.
If you can fly,
Show me how;
I guess I must have lost
My wings somehow.
If you forget how to love,
Hurry up and remember;
I can't wait until
Next September
For you to find your way
Back to me.
Forget this whole thing;
Let's just call it a night.
Some feelings can't be worded right.

I Am Wicked

I am wicked.
I can see no tomorrow;
Not for me.
The world may not end tonight
But I already have.
I am wicked.
I'm not a good friend.
Don't tell me I am.
If I were good,
I would be gone by now.
The dirty deed
Would already be done.
I hang around
And hang around
And hang around
And never just...
Don't misunderstand me.
I don't want to go.
I don't want to go.
But I can't stay any longer.
I'm out of options.
It's not the same.
I am wicked.
I am selfish
And lazy
And foolish.
No one needs me
And I am wicked.
You can tell me
And tell me
And tell me,
But I don't believe you love me.
I don't believe He loves me.
I don't believe it gets any better.
Just laugh with me one last time.
Hug me
Even though I'll tell you not to.
Sing to me.
I am wicked.
But please
Don't let me die alone.

I Want To See Where This Goes

I've been thinking 'bout where this could go
If you'd just ask one simple question.
What's the answer?
Well, I don't know,
But it feels like we're headed
In some sort of direction.
Pull me up,
Or put me down,
Take me there,
Or turn me around;
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
Spin me left,
Point me right,
Bring me back,
Let's drive all night;
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
I've been thinking 'bout where this could go
If I could just get the words out.
Is it too soon?
Are you ready?
I'm not sure,
But maybe we're headed
That direction.
Pull me up,
Or put me down,
Take me there,
Or turn me around;
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
Spin me left,
Point me right,
Bring me back,
Let's drive all night;
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
Do you see what I see?
Are you coming with me?
I'm not sure where we're headed,
But I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
I'm thinking about one simple question.
What's the answer?
I don't quite know,
But I think we're headed some direction.
Pull me up;
I know you won't put me down.
Take my hand
And spin me around.
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
Spin me left,
Dip me right,
Bring me back,
Let's laugh all night;
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.
I want to see where this goes.

Even Before The Storm Breaks

You feel like
The eye of the storm;
Chaos all around me,
But you keep me warm.
I talk to you;
You already know.
I give you my heart;
You don't let it go.
And though the wind and rain
Knock me to the ground
I know that you will never
Let me drown.
So I feel safe,
Even before the storm breaks.
You feel like
The eye of the storm;
If I stay with you
I won't be harmed.
I can stand still,
While people run away.
I listen to you;
You know just what to say.
Though the wind and rain may
Knock me to the ground
If you hold my hand, I know
I won't drown.
So I'm not afraid,
Even before the storm breaks.
As long as I'm with you,
I feel safe
Even before the storm breaks.

Blank Check

My love for you is a blank check, baby;
Fill in what you need.
You got it;
With draw it;
No limit
With me.
I know nobody's perfect,
But your love is everything to me.
I mean it;
Believe it;
I need it;
Need you.
I know that it sounds silly,
But I mean every word.
When you say that you love me
It's the most beautiful thing
That I've ever heard.
My love for you is a blank check, baby;
Just tell me what you need.
You get it;
Forget it;
No fine line
With me.
I know nobody's perfect,
But your love is everything to me.
I mean it;
Believe it;
I need it;
Need you.
