I never wanted anything so bad
I threw all caution to the wind
He’d created from within.
From without he was a simple man
A gentleman tried and true
I had never opened my own car door
And oh those eyes of blue
Keeping me awake at night
I’m thinking of them now,
And the love I might have lost
Because of something I had found.
I found myself at the end of a bottle
At least one night or two
Mostly on the nights I could not bear to think of you
The love I gave up
For a lack of better words,
In order to strengthen myself,
So not to be a burden to anybody else.
A baby bird with small wings
Unsure of the world
I found myself adrift
Making a mockery of that Girl.
The girl I used to be
Because I had met you
And never known another
The way that I knew you
We hurt the people we love most
And hurt ourselves along the way,
The things I would take back
I think about them everyday
My next words were a double ended sword
And I took the stab twice,
Consequences you won’t mind
When your fighting for the love of your life
To keep them in your arms
There is nothing you wouldn’t do,
Lie and steal and beg and cheat
The things you would go through
I know from experience
Because I’m still in love with you
Like the day we met at a sweet 16
Against that railing, no one knew.
Growing more and more each day
Both together and apart,
Separated by land or sea
You continue to hold my heart.
