AloneStarry eyed as we lay,
Nights with you shine bright as days.
Hold me close when we're alone,
Your heart is my new found home.
As we look at the sparkling sky,
Your eyes sing me a lullaby.
I gaze at you with a longing stare,
A warm breeze flutters in the air.
Safe inside your tight embrace,
You look down and kiss my face.
Then all at once you disappear,
I'm cold and alone, laying here.
So unexpected, and so wrong,
You took away where I belong.
I hear your whisper in the wind,
but when I try to find you, you're gone again.
ThiefI admit it's still difficult, my dear
because you are still entwined around my heart
and every beat drops slowly
and everything you were is tangled in my head
I'm not quite sure what to do
for every breath I take
I step forward into the clear
but you had ensnared my every emotion
and bewitched me to the bone
kisses of honey and poison and mud
I believed religiously in every word you said
Like a thief, I pick at locks holding me down
and clean rain will wash over my heart once more
Our Stars AlignWould you dance with me in the kitchen,
with the moon shining overhead?
I'll take your hands and smile into your kisses,
and laugh at the funny things we've said.
I'll bring you into my garden,
and whisper secrets into your ears.
And after we've been lost for hours,
I will tell you all of my fears.
The sunshine ripples soft
upon your lazy cheeks
so let's just lay in bed, my love
for hours, or days, or weeks.
The outline of your embrace
blooms petals around my spine
our heartbeats tonight, how quickly they match
and our breath, and our stars align.
SleepyheadLay down with me tonight, my dear.
I see you are wearing thin.
I'll quiet those voices that won't let you sleep,
and let the comfort in.
Your mind is always running wild,
please don't let the tigers find you.
Gently come closer, you are not alone,
we have our dreams to attend to.
I know those nightmares set you on fire,
I watch you turn and burn.
The city lights begin to crumble,
and your awareness I cannot discern.
I'll fight beside you through the night,
your heartbeat so alive.
Your pain surrounds me in it's mist,
into your ocean, I dive.
