Life is never expected.
Experiences, I collected.
Spent a lot of time reflecting
On aspects of me I neglected.

A house in Beverly Hills?
I don’t need it, I don’t need it.
Ferrari with rims on the wheels?
I don’t need it, I don’t need it.
Victoria’s model, no secret.
I don’t need it, I don’t need it.
Superficial stuff, you can keep it.
I don’t need it, I don’t need it.

You’re synonymous with music.
It’s like you’re my favorite playlist.
Sweatpants Saturday with your hair in a twist.
I was yours before our first kiss.
You protect me from my demons.
Strengthen me when I’m weakened.
Wanna get high on the weekends.
Attracted to you like a beacon.

Stay as you are.
I need it, I need it.
Be my shooting star.
I need it, I need it.
Don’t feed into external stuff.
I need it, I need it.
‘Cause you’ll always be enough.

I want to live.
I want to love.
I want to feel the strength that can only come from above.
I want to take your hand.
Stand by your side.
And never get off of this ******* crazy ride.
I want to dance.
I want to fight.
I just want to give you all of me tonight.
I don't just want to say.
I want to do.
I want to understand,
And baby, I think I'm starting to.
So if you'll let me, I want to feel your soul.
I want to bathe in your light.
I want to take your pain and make things right.
I want to play the game with you on my team
and we can show the world things are better than they seem.
I hope you'll make my dream come true, I hope you'll be my wife,
and be the best part of my life.
be the best part of my life.
I want to feel the fire burn.
I want to feel the waves rush over me.
I want to see the world from sea to shining sea.
I want to make mistakes.
Not be afraid to fall.
As long as you're with me, I want to do it all.
So, if you'll let me, I want to feel your soul.
I want to bathe in your light.
I want to take your pain and make things right.
I want to play the game with you on my team
and we can show the world things are better than they seem.
I hope you'll make my dream come true.
I hope you'll be my wife
and be the best part of my life.
Be the best part of my life.
The night we met, it was me, myself and I.
don't know where I'd be without you by my side.
Want to play the game with you on my team.
We can show the world things are better than they seem.
I hope you'll make my dream come true.
I hope you'll be my wife.
And be the best part of my life.
Will you be the best part of my life.
My first full length song. Played on a radio show dedicated to poetry stationed in Denver
mind that,
its okay
to be scared
to be better
smile
even when
you're crying
stop running
from the storm
just embrace it
feel everything
fight all you
want, and then
face it
believe in you
trust yourself
free because
you need not know
where you're going
but because
you don't
need to know
let go
im free because i just let it go, fly with the wind baby

I understand, everything is give & take.
But, how much must one give?
Give, in order to recieve.
I understand, everything is give & take.
But, whats there to measure?
For ones trash, could be the others treasure.

I understand, its give and take.
But how much, must i give ?
Give, in order to recieve.
I could give you, my everything.
But for you, it could mean nothing.

I understand, its give and take.
But what is it, that you take?
When you dont know, what you want.
You could give me, your everything.
But for me, it could mean nothing.

I understand, everything is give & take.
Human relationships are getting more complicated than ever, too much greed in this corrupted socitey forcing unrealistic expectations upon you.
But i shall give, give & give, everything i have without any intentions of taking. Even if it means, i have to break my self into a million pieces.
I shall give until my last breath  for there is no better feeling, than giving away.

All I want to do is to drown in your baby blue eyes
Teach me how to swim with you, I need as many lessons as you can do
We can share as many strokes our body can handle
Floating in these wavy glistening eyes that I can’t seem to handle
But even when these storms strike our body, we can be electrified together
All I want to do is dive in the ocean you’ve have pooled together
All I want to do is die in both those baby blue eyes that you’ve been born with

"I love you" is what
I want to say, but instead
I just walk away..

All I have ever
wanted is to have my own
love story... but I
guess even that one thing is
too much to ask, isn't it?

Everyone's talking about April, but what happened to the first half of May??
What she really wanted was
To know where he layed
What type of gown
Her prince charming chose to sleep in,
Was where he lived a house or a home?
Was he surrounded by the warmth of the sun and the giving gift of tenured trees?
Or was he besaught by the warmth and given the the gift of soundless snow?
Was he stomach stuffed on warm thanksgiving dinners?
Did his laugh spread around his home, infecting his kindred
Was he the prince of his palace
Finding himself a safe place to triumph but also fall weak?
Was he too tired or stubborn for mama’s kisses because of football practice?
Or was it the growing age of a boy, ripening for his new love?
Did he hang a banner of his college above his bed?
And change it out for a cap and gown?
Did he sleep with disaster?
Or did he pride in the comfort of geniuosity?
Did he lay his head on his pillow at night
And wonder these things about me too?

My gaze does not land on your figure
Unwittingly or by chance
It is drawn in, inexplicably
By your arresting presence

It awakens an aching hunger
Deep-seated and desperate
Which consumes me entirely
Until I am slave to it

I yearn for you unabashedly
For your entire being
A fervent desire so profound
For you I would mortally sin

Just look and I'll be at your mercy
One word and I'm on my knees
If anything is certain tonight
It will be me begging "please"
Look at you.
Look at me.
