Here, There, Everywhere

Written October 07, 2008

We went to a coffee house and I got a soup and a muffin and a coffee
Took a sip here, sip there, I was sipping everywhere
A twelfth of our day was spent sitting down, another twelfth sweating; we were all over town
Drove here, drove there, we were driven everywhere

Hellos and goodbyes, shaking hands and high fives
Went to the alley, five Hanks and a Sally
A provocative name and a “scandalous” game
She had a good guess, knew my smile meant yes
She had a good guess, knew that my smile meant yes

Easy to make a dollar when you’re playing a guy who just got horse collared
Pins here, pins there, pins were flying everywhere
A twelfth of our day was spent throwing hard, another twelfth chatting in the back of my yard
Drinks here, food there, it was lying everywhere

Little jokes, little laughs, friendships that’ll last
There was a shoulder shrug then a downhill hug
As quickly as they had gone, they were right at home
End of a great day; rain drops were falling on my head
End of a great day; rain drops were falling on my head

When She Needs A Shoulder

Written August 31, 2008

I try to be her knight in shinning armor
Be her king, build my castle around her
Guard her with my life forever
And be there when she needs a shoulder

We lied there cuddling, oh, so softly
While she sang little sweet-nothings to me

She laced her tiny fingers through my own
My house ain’t sweet until she comes home

I try to be her knight in shinning armor
‘Cause her love is the only thing I’m fighting for

I try to be her knight in shinning armor
Be her king, build my castle around her
Guard her with my life forever
Be there when she needs a shoulder

Just to sleep
To sleep
Just to sleep
I’ll be there when she sleeps

When it comes to love, hers is all I want
When it came time, Cupid didn’t have to hunt

She likes my jokes and I love to hear her laugh
She plays with bubbles when we take a bath

I try to be her knight in shinning armor
‘Cause her love is the only thing I’m fighting for

I try to be her knight in shinning armor
Be her king, build my castle around her
Guard her with my life forever
Be there when she needs a shoulder

Just to laugh
To laugh
Just to laugh
I’ll be there when she laughs

The Original Sin

Written August 31, 2008

Hi, sweetheart
Hello, soul mate
Did I really hear you right?
Well how did it taste?

This is forbidden
But also tempting
The serpent said we would live
So I’ll just take a bite

What in the hell?
This tastes like heaven
But we’ve unleashed the seven sins
Unto the world

It’s the original sin that made us this way
And now we’re forbidden and given a life of pain

He took from me and created you
You’ve only been a burden, what the hell did you do?

Two thousand years ago you were supposed to be a blessing
But two thousand years from now they’ll only be asking questions

Why can’t we just lay down together
Without a single bother
There’s always gotta be a father in my damn way

Why won’t you just let me live
I ain’t ’bout to forgive
‘Cause you used to be just like me back in the day

I said you used to be
Just like me
Back in the day

It’s because of the original sin
That we end up this way

Fishes

Written August 14, 2008

I’m just a dove
I’m just a dove who’s alone now
My love has been shot down
Loveless, lacking know-how

I’ve washed the color out of my eyes
From all the times I’ve thought of you
Now I keep them closed tight at night
I can’t let you see they’ve lost their hue

I can see my reflection in my black sunglasses
All I see are my own eyes looking back at me
That’s the closest I’ve come to seeing my own soul
And now I know there’s more to see

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
Giving out kisses now

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
And I’m giving out kisses now

I’m gonna give myself time to think
Do I jump and will I fall?
Do I try to start over again?
I can’t let that happen to me at all

I can see my reflection in my mirror tonight
All I see is my devil, I don’t think it’d dare
The fire in it’s eyes has begun to ignite
All I gotta do is give it air

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
Giving out kisses now

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
And I’m giving out kisses now

Simple Things

Written August 14, 2008

I don’t need a metaphor
Or even a simile
To describe all the simple things
That you do for me

I’m not saying that you’re simple
In fact, you’re very complex
It’s just that seeing your dimples
Means more than objects

I don’t need a reason
Or even a rhyme
To describe the emotions
I feel at night

I’m not saying I don’t love it
‘Cause you know that I do
It’s just that feeling your lovin’
Is always overdue

I don’t need a rhythm
Or a metronome
To keep the beat in my heart
Whenever you’re home

I’m not saying you’re the drummer
Even though that you are
It’s just that you’re my lover
No matter near or far

Made This Way

Written July 27, 2008

I always wondered why I was made this way
But then I realized it all today

I’ve got long arms, so I can squeeze you tight
Enormous hands, to hold you at night
A foot in height, so it’s cuter when we kiss
It makes me smile to know you’re in love with this

Tonight, we can just call it a night
And sit hear and look at the stars
‘Cause the sky is ours
The night is ours

I always wondered why you were made this way
But then I realized it all today

You’ve got that shape, so we fit like a puzzle
The bridge of your nose, is where my lips can nuzzle
A beautiful mind, so we can always reminisce
It makes me smile to know I’m in love with this

Tonight, we can just call it a night
And sit hear and look at the stars
‘Cause the sky is ours
The night is ours
