You say I need God in my life,
claim I need to know my Creator,
invite me to church but I’m not interested in your four walls of what you believe to be heaven.
No, I know that this earth is my heaven,
my head is my sanctuary,
this life is my scripture
and each of the 6.8 billion individuals here are their own creators because there is no hope,
only action and the actions I take create my destiny and keep me living and loving this life I lead
and I need you to know that hate is too easily called love,
but your hate couldn’t beat the love out of me because I feed on it,
I need it like babies need their hands and knees to crawl on before they find their feet
because I’m still crawling,
still trying to find my feet so I can walk the untrod path towards my fate
and you may hate the fact that I won’t make myself fit into your neat little lines of organized religion,
but the lines I write are true to the only church I’ll ever know.
This universe is my religion and I am thankful I have found my place in it.
Saying I love you for the first time can be the most terrifying experience of a person’s life.
It’s not just saying those three words,
but saying as well as feeling the meaning of those three words.
It’s timing the delivery of those words so I don’t scare you away.
It’s practicing my delivery of those words like I practice my poetry,
so you can feel what I feel when I tell you what we have is real.
When I say those three words,
I am giving a part of myself to you,
and if I am rejected it may take a while to make myself whole again,
in a sense I’m losing control by putting my fate in your hands,
but with you I’m willing to give up my control because you and me it’s destiny.
You see, love is a tricky thing.
It’s a fine line that we walk on
and sometimes the wind may make us sway and cause us to trip or stumble, but sometimes,
sometimes we fall so hard that it seems we might shatter into a million pieces
if the person we are falling for doesn’t catch us.
That’s why falling in love is also a rush,
there’s that fear that the one you love won’t fall,
but whatever happens I will be here to catch you whenever you are ready to let yourself fall.
I’m standing on the edge, waiting for the wind to push me over
because I still don’t have the courage to fall by myself.
Come stand by me and we’ll fall together.
I’m running out of reasons to wake up in the morning
Because everything about my life is dull and boring.
I’m nice to people that really don’t care,
But I’m a jerk to everyone that’s always been there.
I still have all of my friends,
But I want to be with someone else on the weekends...
I want a girl who is with someone else already.
I was too late in trying to get her to love me.
I feel invisible to the people I love sometimes,
And the ones I can’t stand are around me all the time.
I know that some people love me.
They’re just not always who I want them to be.
I feel like almost everything I do is dumb.
And that I don’t really deserve to have any fun...
There is only one thing I really desire.
And that is for a certain someone to give me that fire.
I want her to give me the spark I need,
So that I can finally be freed
From thinking that my life has no meaning.
I want her to remind me why I’m still breathing.
All I want is for a relationship with her to actually start forming,So that I can finally have a reason to wake up in the morning.
If you haven’t noticed,
Every time I see you, I feel contented.
The more I’m with you, I become more smitten.
The more we talk, I feel awakened.
When you laugh, my heart is emblazoned.
And when you smile, everything seems worthwhile.
If you haven’t noticed,
When I don’t see you, I am weakened.
When I’m without you, I feel abandoned...
When you’re quiet, I feel neglected
When you cry, I feel helpless.
And when you frown, I try to impress.
If you haven’t noticed,
You’re still in my thoughts.
If there were no you, I would probably be lost.
I can’t stand to see you sad.
I can’t ever leave you feeling bad.
If it was up to me, you would always be glad.
And if I could help it, you would never get mad.
If you haven’t noticed,...
I think you’re the best.
If you were mine, I would truly be blessed.
I would never have guessed
That I could stop thinking about all the rest
Of the stressing things of my days,
So maybe I could love you always.
You know I would do anything for you?
Anything and everything I could possibly do.
I’d do anything just for you to look at me
And notice that I’m trying to make you see
That all I want is to be with you
And to make you smile at everything I do.
I’d do anything to get you out of my head,
But to get you more into my life instead.
I’d do anything for us just to talk...
And maybe even go for a long walk.
I’d do anything just to see you to smile
And to know that you would stay with me for awhile.
I’d do anything to have you to hold
And for us to cuddle when it’s cold.
I’d do anything just for you to want to be
The person that just so happens to be with me.
I’d do anything for this to be real
And to tell you how I really feel.
I’d do anything for you to know...
That I will never let go.
