Face The Day

I don't want to face this day
But I don't get that choice today
I just need a little time
But my time's not really mine
Today I have to wear that grin
That hides what's going on within
No one needs to know my mind
They just want me to be kind
I wish I could run to you
But you have other things to do
And I'm too old to act this way
I can't be myself today
Just say you love me one more time
Then I'll pretend that I'm alright.

Pray For Me

I don't mean a word I say;
Sometimes I just get this way.
I'll draw a map straight to my heart
And find my way back where you are,
So when my blues leave on the wind
I can unite with you again.
Pray for me dear, always pray;
That's all the help I need today.
Please don't forget, if I disappear,
All my love is yours, my dear.

Flowers And Flames

Tell me secrets
In the dark;
Let me find out
Who you are.
Whisper sweet things
In my ear;
Make me think
You want me near.
I was not made
To be loved;
I'm designed
For giving up.
Let me pretend
A day or two
I could belong
To a man like you.
My skin is but
A jail cell
Hiding my own
Private hell.
I wish that I
Could let you in,
But there's no getting
Out again.
Love -- a fun,
A dangerous game.
Can't have the flowers
Without the flames.
You'd be better off alone,
But I wish that I
Could call you Home.

All I Needed Was A Friend

Cut my heart up
Burn it out
I can't feel
These things
Right now.
Scrape my skin
To bloody shreds
Rip the thoughts
Out of my head.
Leave me crying
On the floor.
I can't take this anymore.
All the pain
You could inflict
Would never match
The pain within.
Why does my head
Betray me so
Taking me
Where sorrows grow?
I can't go
Through this again.
/All I needed
Was a friend.

Maybe I'm Not Good Enough

I can't make myself okay
I can't make it go away
I just need to feel loved
Maybe I'm not good enough
I can't keep the tears away
I can't make myself be brave
I can't make you understand
I just need to hold your hand
I can't stop my throbbing heart
I can't help falling apart
I just want to be loved
Maybe I'm not good enough
I can't have you here with me
I can't make you want to be
I can't help taking the blame
I can't help feeling ashamed
I can't help you when it hurts
I am not what you deserve
I want to make you feel loved
Maybe I'm not good enough

Can't Tell You No

It's far too late,
And this isn't right,
But I've been waiting for you
All of my life.
I've been waiting for you
For such a long time;
How could I make myself
Tell you goodbye?
My body is shaking,
And I don't know why.
My body is shaking,
And I'm out of my mind.
Can you feel it, too?
Can you hear me sigh?
I love you, baby;
I can't say good night.
I can't tell you no;
Couldn't if I tried.
I can't tell you no, babe,
And I don't want to fight it.
I long to be near you,
And I can't hide it.
So whisper softly in my ear;
I'll close my eyes,
And wish you here.
And when you're finally
At my side,
I'll pull you closer,
Close as you like.
Then you can kiss
My racing heart,
And we'll never have to
Be apart.

Invincible

I'm invincible
In your arms;
There I'll rest,
Safe from harm.
I'm invincible
By your side;
In your heart
I can hide.
I'm invincible
With your love;
You make me feel
Like I'm enough.
I'm invincible
Holding your hand;
I'm your girl,
And you're my man.
I'm invincible
When I see your eyes;
You smile at me,
And I'm satisfied.
I'm invincible
When you lift me up.
I'm not afraid;
I have your love.
I'm invincible
As long as you're here;
I won't leave,
Don't you fear.
I'm invincible
If I have you,
So let me say
I love you, too.

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.
