AS I AM

Take me as I am
I am not changing anytime soon
So take me as I am
I’ll come home soon
If I stand a chance
We may get eaten alive
But If I stand a chance
I’ll give it time
 
I love you more than words could ever sing 
Eyes could ever feel 
Songs could ever bring 
And I love you more than hearts could ever know 
Whispers could scream 
I just don’t know what to do anymore 
 
I’m beaten to my bones 
Don’t see a way out anytime soon
Beaten to my bones 
But I assume 
That if I have a hope
The hope might stay alive 
And we will have our home
It’s worth a try
 
I love you more than words could ever sing 
Eyes could ever feel 
Songs could ever bring 
And I love you more than hearts could ever know 
Whispers could scream
I just don’t know what to do anymore 
 
Oooh there is a song (I might run away)
Oooh there is a song (I might beg you to stay)
That’s bound to sing (show nothing when you need it most)
eventually (let it loose when you have no choice) if you sing along 

In this empty old house I am standing here naked

In this room with there only a couch and a carpet

Stands my vigilant heart, In your eyes full of clouds

You say no matter what, You are the only one

 

You are the only one

 

On a couple of pillows under the low dim light

We sit here side by side on the cold tile floor

And I sing you a song, As you strum my guitar

I may start to believe, That I am your only one

 

I am your only one

 

Whispers of where I was from, run through my veins

Take me away, From being free if only to be with you 

Yelling there’s no other way you’ll stay the same

Never let go of all you held close, why listen to your feelings? 

 

I am your only one

You are the only one

Only One


My fragile heart is here to stay

I’ve wished it gone a thousand ways 

A birthday flame a starry night

A penny found his nose upright

 

My apple heart fell from its tree

And hit the ground beneath the green

And rolled it way into your hand

One bite showed I could feel again 

 

Delicate, my lover be

Hold my fragile heart to thee

I am your porcelain laced with gold

Easily broken, yours to behold

 

Alas, my heart is here to stay 

I’ve given up all other ways 

So now you have my beating heart 

 

Your eyes can build or tear apart 

Your words can build or tear apart

Your thoughts can build or tear apart

 

Delicate, my lover be

Hold my fragile heart to thee

I am your porcelain laced with gold

Easily broken, yours to behold

 

Treat me with care 

Or I’m bound to be broken

 

Delicate, my lover be

Hold my fragile heart to thee

I am your porcelain laced with gold

Easily broken, yours to behold

FRAGILE


Aimless Wanderer

I remember the last we were there 
Still a mark on the leg of the chair 
Of the table we sat at together in June
You were still searching when I knew I’d found
The precious in hiding behind travels down
Showed me the map traced the lines you had crossed
 
My light was your light and I knew you were there 
My light was your light and I knew you were there 
 
Aimless wanderer I was one too
Didn’t realize ’til I found you
Our vagabond hearts gave way to the truth
I once was called aimless, but wandered to you
 
We stumbled home in the loneliest place
World’s highest capital below the arctic 
They were all calling for meaning askew 
You made a statement foregoing our youth
Asked me to move to the city you knew
So we carved the words on the leg of that chair
 
My light was your light and I knew you were there 
My light was your light and I knew you were there 
 
Aimless wanderer I was one too
Didn’t realize ’til I found you
Our vagabond hearts gave way to the truth
I once was called aimless, but wandered to you
 
Journeyed far looking where you belonged
I saw myself in your life’s song
Thinking this world would set you free
But wandered home aimed right at me
 
Aimless wanderer I was one too
Didn’t realize ’til I found you
Our vagabond hearts gave way to the truth
I once was called aimless but wandered to you

Miles

I never thought I would run away
I never thought I would stay
Wanderlust is what brought me here
A settled heart has made it clear
Or maybe I’m just older now
 
That’s not the way it’s supposed to be
Friendship lived vicariously
We’re so east and west away
Miles and miles and here to stay
 
Miles and miles and miles away, and here to stay
 
I never wanted to be so separate,I wanted you to call and I’d be right there
Look at me now so desperate, So many miles and such thin air
We parted all the most natural ways, San Francisco stayed at bay
standing there with me on that day was miles and miles and miles away
 
Miles and miles and miles away
Miles and miles and miles and miles away
miles and miles and miles, and here to stay
 
And I’ve grieved it, And times gone by
but no matter, friendships are not meant to die
and we know it we’ve always shared the same soul
it’s such a shame we’ll never get the chance to have it whole
 
Miles and miles and miles away
Miles and miles and miles and miles away
miles and miles and miles, and here to stay
