I'm puttin in a request
for love without rest.
Gimme dat good ****
and I don want no mess.
I'm a ****** up individual
still dealing with the residual
of living this life loveless.
Don't got no one to come
home to no to run
to no one
to hold this scarred heart,
to hold this bag of bones together
no one to blow my universe apart
and replace it with something new.
No I don't want no mess
when I'm the one that needs a new fix
I'm useless and I've yet to accept
myself for who I am.

I'm putting in a request
for you to bring some color to my life
I've been blanched for quite some time
need that passion that newness
to grow old with.
I need your timeless.
It's gonna take some time
for me to get strength
and confidence.
And I'm not long till the finish.
I know the idea of "us" can outlast
the length of time I need
and at the end of this race
I'm requesting your presence.
Can you wait for me?
