I wish my love could heal you baby
take away every hurt
kiss away the pain
silence the worries
I wish my love was enough to save you
I wish my love could protect you from this cruel world
I wish my love could break your every fall
My love for you is so strong
and yet I feel so powerless
I hope my love is…
your safe haven
your warm fire in the winter
your saving grace
your shady tree on a hot day
your shield in battle
your whiskey bottle after a hard day
You’re the one I’m thinking of tonight
because I’m feeling good, like I finally got life right
like when the sun is shining and the wind is on your face
but maybe the only thing I got right is you
and that’s enough for me baby.
You’re the one I think of on a rough night
when my chest is heavy and my head don’t feel right
like when you’re lost and afraid in the dark
but the moonlight guides you to the morning horizon.
because I want you and I need you baby
You’re the one
Keep me close to you
even when you can not be near my heart bursts for you like a
volcano. Hot lava coursing through my veins, the love
I have for you burns and grows
nuzzling deep within my chest every time I hear your name.
These thoughts rotting inside my head are not my own
I know that and yet I cannot stop thinking them.
I’m sorry it’s not just the two of us in this relationship.
Thank you for being patient and kind
the gentle hand to soothe my worries away.
Even as I sway, I always stay rooted in you.
And I will cut the dead branches that weigh us down.
I swear I am all you’ll ever need
You’ll never think of another woman again
Your thoughts will be consumed with your desire for me.
All day long you’ll be thinking of everything you want to tell me
And how it would be better if I was there with you.
There will never be another love like mine
Our lives were meant to align.
I’m selfish, I never want to share you with anyone else.
You’re all mine
That’s a tie you have to sever, I’m keeping you forever.
Give me all of you because you have all of me
I know you love me
You love me more
than you’ve ever loved anyone else
But I know I’m not the first in your arms
And I can hear how she sweet talked you
How the heat of her body warmed your blood
How she sang into your ear like you two were the only ones in the crowd
The roads you took to spend another night beside her
The words you permanently printed into history about her
I know it all because you’ve shown me, told me, hurt me
You don’t even need to say her name anymore and I know
But do you know how much it messes with me head?
How often moments with you are overridden
My mind replacing me with her
Flashbacks of memories I wasn’t even there for
Please make it stop.
