I honestly can’t tell you how I feel
so confused am I on the false and real
To care too much is to not care at all
But I promise I’ll catch you when you fall
I’m not here to talk of me, but of you.
Your smile could light up the world, or my life
If I was not blinded by other lights
Whatever happens, you’ll always make it
You are not the type to sit and submit
It’s no wonder I think the world of you.
Always there in spirit, always so kind
So many live life without you to find
You keep me grounded where I need to be
But I’ll let you achieve your dreams freely
Whatever happens, I’ll watch over you.
Perhaps we knew one another some time
Maybe now we’re divided in the rhyme
But the words are the same, and we know them
And I’ll sing them with you until the end
With every day our bond will deepen
Guiding me home, as a watchful beacon
I can’t find words to tell you what I mean
But you’re the brightest star I’ve ever seen
I hope one day I can truly know you.
Lord and Lady
She is a drawing to me, a picture
Of a coffee shop or distant island
And I asked her, begged her, let her, picked her
Because she makes the sound to my silence.
She is a moment to me, a quick glimpse
Of happiness, sorrow, love and a laugh
And a secret, special, exchanged with winks
Because loneliness has an epitaph.
She is a lady to me, a royal
Of a land that may not even exist
And to her I remain ever loyal
Because I’d walk the whole world for one more kiss.
I am a lord to her, a sovereign
Of my group, to protect is my duty
And I love to watch the fall of the rain
Because in love, even sadness has beauty.
I see you across the room, and your wide
Eyes with worried stare makes me smile.
I was once like you, lost and alone, but now
I can be your guide. But I cannot say hello.
I get nervous, and hide away, waiting for
You to come to me. Then we talk and for
The first time, I’m laughing with someone.
Laughing with a friend. A real friend.
I’ve never had a friend before.
But you’re what I’ve been waiting for.
Here we are, up here, miles above.
Too young to truly be in love.
No one can touch you when I’m by your side
And we travel. Wherever we go, there’s fun
To be had, and I forget the nightmares of my
Past. Laying them to rest as I do the same with you.
The final path is before us now. You don’t
Seem scared, so I put on a brave face too.
Walking the lonely road until we get to the
End, whatever may away us there. Together.
I’ve never been so scared before.
But you promised me something more.
I see the fire burning in your eye.
You refuse to let your promises die.
