My Love

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

You’re the One

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

Dead Branches

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’m Selfish

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

Things I Wish I Didn’t Know

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

 

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.
