(1st Verse)
You’ve got your mothers eyes,
You’ve got her billion dollar smile.
You are a gift from the heavens gates,
You are our beautiful precious child.
Son…life will throw you all kinds of curves
Son…all I ask is that you listen to these words

Chorus:
Don’t be afraid to be who you are
Don’t be afraid to fall down
Don’t be afraid to speak your voice
We will always be around
Don’t be afraid of your convictions
Don’t be afraid to feel the cuts
Don’t be afraid to say a prayer
You will always have our love

(2nd Verse)
You’ve got your mothers heart
You’ve got her amazing wildfire eyes
You are a blessing and a joy
You will always be our boy
Son..life will give you pain and all kinds of hurt
Son…all I ask is that you listen to these words

Chorus:
Don’t be afraid to be who you are
Don’t be afraid to fall down
Don’t be afraid to speak your voice
We will always be around
Don’t be afraid of your convictions
Don’t be afraid to feel the cuts
Don’t be afraid to say a prayer
You will always have our love

Bridge:
From the moment you were born
We held on to you so tight
The tears never stopped from falling
You became the center of our life

Chorus:
Don’t be afraid to be who you are
Don’t be afraid to fall down
Don’t be afraid to speak your voice
We will always be around
Don’t be afraid of your convictions
Don’t be afraid to feel the cuts
Don’t be afraid to say a prayer
You will always have our love

Constantly Yearning 

Tags

, , ,

Patiently waiting 

To hear your sensual voice 

Listening to every command 

Bravely on the edge 

To hear your deep aching desires 

Listening to every word 

Calmly wanting 

To hear your vivid fantasies 

Listening so intensely 

Faithfully needing 

To hear your whispered pleasures 

Listening to your cravings 

Constantly yearning 

To hear your erotic appetite 

Listening to you hunger 

Complete

You give me a tidal wave of joy

You give me tears of happiness

You give me a bright shining light 

You give me a world of love

I’m proud

I’m lucky 

I’m blessed 

You give me a treasure chest 

You give me a key to the palace 

You give me the candle in the dark 

You give me the unexplained 

I’m happy 

I’m mesmerized 

I’m elated 

You give me a hand to hold on to 

You give me the sun on a rainy day 

You give me peace and the calm 

You give me the most amazing gift…you 

I’m overjoyed 

I’m in love 

I’m complete

Break the freeze 

Break the noise

Break the sequence 

Break the barrier 

Break the ignorance 

Break the sign

Break the machine 

Break the violence 

Break the stigma

Break the insomnia 

Disconnect me from your nightmare 

Break the hand 

Break the combat 

Break the lies 

Break the commands 

Break the distance

Break the deceit 

Break the miscommunication 

Break the ties 

Disconnect me from your crystal ball

Afraid of Unspoken Words

If you don’t like me 

Just say so 

If you don’t want me 

Just say so 

If you want to give up 

Just say so 

If you aren’t attracted to me 

Just say so 

If you want to move on 

Just say so 

If you choose not to understand me 

Just say so 

If you the walls you made are concrete 

Just say so 

If you don’t like what you see

Just say so 

If you want to walk away 

Just say so 

Never ending Star

Love stood in the doorway between the rooms of anger and hate.

Love found the pillars of echoing hearts and sang to freedom.

Love gave the seekers the answers that they were looking for.

Love could not wait for the ignorance and the blind.

Love held hands with the soulful hope and rainbow faith.

Love doesn’t need flavor or added preservatives to shine.

Love is not a shadow, glimpse, or a ray.

Love is the never ending radiant star that we choose not to see.

Love is something that we are afraid to see or we discard out of the lack of patience.

Wretched Circle 

Tags

, , ,

Between the candy moon and the crooked stars is your identity

Between the salty ground and the snakeskin arrow is your wildfire 

Between the clouds of dust and the queen of chaos is your cynical laugh

Between the blaring distance and the silent addictions are your confusions 

Between the cold river and the emptiness is my depression 

Between the scattered nightmares and bitterness is our wretched circle 

Between the colorful mirage and blurriness is your skewed perception 

Something Perfect

(1st verse)
It hit me like a cannonball,
You could see it on the other side of the wall.
It hit me like a freight train,
Maybe that’s why I’m going insane.
I don’t know how to stop time from sitting still,
I didn’t realize how much silence really kills.

Chorus:
We took something perfect,
Now we are slowly removing the parts that made it work.
We took something perfect,
Maybe I didn’t notice but maybe you felt the pain first.
I don’t know how to be strong,
Just like you, it will be hard to carry on.

(2nd Verse)
It hit me like a tons of bricks,
I couldn’t see how much I would truly miss.
It hit me like a morning car crash,
I always thought this was built to last.
I don’t know how to stop it from rolling down the hill,
I didn’t realize how much silence really kills.

Chorus:
We took something perfect,
Now we are slowly removing the parts that made it work.
We took something perfect,
Maybe I didn’t notice but maybe you felt the pain first.
I don’t know how to be strong,
Just like you, it will be hard to carry on.

Bridge:
I never thought it could get better than this.
I never thought it would be everything I would miss.
I never thought it would hurt so much,
I never thought I would have to bottle this up.
It feels like I have to be the strong one,
I can’t have you see me come undone.

Chorus:
We took something perfect,
Now we are slowly removing the parts that made it work.
We took something perfect,
Maybe I didn’t notice but maybe you felt the pain first.
I don’t know how to be strong,
Just like you, it will be hard to carry on.
