that’s the only lullaby I’ll ever need
So keep letting your heart beat sing me to sleep
you told me you loved me a thousand times
you didn't say it with you voice
you said it with your eyes
you saturate my darkest nights
with all the colors that lay in your eyes
and if i never find another soul to love, i'll be okay with yours being the last.
maybe it will never change
maybe we will still be flowers on the side of the road
still no place to call home
but still flowing in our veins is the wildness and adventure that
we’ve always known to be
we would be gleaming with vivd colors.
still trying to survive
the bitter cold
when winter comes along, and someone doesn’t stop to pick you next and we will be left
something once so beautiful and fragile
now lifeless and limp.
maybe the hesitation that ached below my skin
when i met you, was something i shouldn't have ignored.
we waltz in perfect time at the end of the line
back and forth
with a face full of smiles
with a heart full of ache
that the music will soon be over
and so we will.
but just for an extra moment
i get to hold you near me.
