wouldn't life be easier if things were just a bit clearer?
he's sweet, this man
he's tender, the way he runs his finger down my face
there's something about the way he speaks, so intelligently
but could it also be that i'm just infatuated with the thought of having somebody to hold
someone to be intimate with
someone to potentially fall in love with
sweet little tender life of mine
can you tell me if this man is meant to be mine?
you are so precious
your smile and laugh are infectious
you truly are my little sunshine
yet you wish you were dead?
you wish you no longer existed?
don't you know how much it pains me to hear that?
you think you need me?
baby, i need YOU
i can't even imagine a world without you
please don't leave
i promise, it can't rain forever
at the end of the day
you are my little sunshine, remember?
one, two, three, breathe
one, two, three, breathe out
it's all in my head
that's what i keep reciting to myself
it's all in my head
but if it's all in my head
why is my heart pounding so loud?
it feels like it might just fall out
i hope you’re happy
and that it was all worth it
i hope the girl you’re with now
learns self love
i had to forgive you
without ever receiving an apology
there’s such a hunger for success
and it sits inside of me
i always wonder why this hunger is so **** loud
always growling out of me
but then it all makes sense
my ancestors didn’t go through all that pain for nothing
they didn’t cry tears of sadness for it to amount to nothing
this is what i’m supposed to be doing
reaching for my dreams
making sure i make all of you proud
this life, this is all for you
isn’t it crazy,
that self love isn’t a subject that’s taught in schools?
imagine what a world we’d live in
if more people loved themselves
we’d love each other
what a beautiful thing that’d be
the wind is hitting my face
my heart is beating so fast out of my chest
i’m trying to catch my breath
i have sweat running down my spine all the way down to my legs
the waves are splashing me
more water on my damp body
can’t tell what is sweat and what is salt water
but i’m running and i’m running
by the beach
listening to my favorite music
going along with the beat
what else am i supposed to feel except for freeness?
