The Nearness of You

I try not to think of you

Try not to write to you

Try not to feel the urges crawling under my skin

 

It’s constantly there

I can’t turn it off

Obsessions only get masked by creating another

Yet distractions only last so long

 

My thoughts return to you 

Your hands and body close to mine 

You’ve never left me

Yet I feel you closer than ever before

In Need of Relief

Would you be lonely tonight 

Sleeping next to me all night

Or would you be happy

Living without me

 

You watch me as I tumble down 

You watch me as I fall to the ground

Would you pick me up and piece me back together 

Would you stand me up and love me forever

 

Am I someone you want

Am I someone you need

Do I make you happy now

Or am I just someone you've fou...

The Nagging

There’s a longing

A nagging feeling 

Deep within

Longing for the past

Longing for what was lost

Longing for something new 

Longing for what could be

We cycle through thoughts

Pull me back there

How do I get there

What got me here

What am I doing here

Where do I go from here

Circling and circling

Spin me around and ‘round

Disconnect me from all thought

Scratch at the surface

Go on,

Have another drink,

Take another hit,

Get in another fight,

It doesn't make a difference

If you win or lose,

I'm the one 

Just scratching at the surface.

 

Does it make you feel

Make you feel like a man

Does it make you feel

Make you feel more than I am

 

Put me in my place,

Spit in my face,

Go on, darling,

It doesn't make a difference

The meeting

I can't believe the news today,

It's been so long since I dreamt of the day we'd meet.

I can't believe it's coming,

My heart's skipping beats.

 

Old thoughts are pouring out

Of a love I couldn't live without.

 

The day is approaching

Where dreams will become reality,

Sunday, this Sunday,

Everything is falling into place.

 

Then I saw your face,

Held your e...

Holding back

Too much trouble's been brewing

Your lover's over in the next room

You're thinking too much about someone else

And your possible escape

But something's holding you back

 

Are you waiting for a rescue

Someone to come and find you

But they've all gone and you are on your own

You need to be free

But something's holding you back

Daydreaming

I catch myself daydreaming 

When I look at you

Just a moment away from holding you

But I don't

 

I catch myself daydreaming

When I hear your words

I could respond so sweetly

But I don't

 

You catch me by surprise

At every moment

I hold back and remind myself

I can't fall in love with you

 

I catch myself daydreaming

Of our time together when you're n...

Where do we go from here

You called me Love,

I was too young and scared to call you anything at all.

The butterflies and you knew what it all mean to me.

I sang and wrote to you,

About you,

And dreamt of you

Like no other.

Now we recount the love we had so clear and so deep,

Where do we go from here?

Shall we have that love once again?

Love returns

Awake in the night,

Sleep chased away by the memories of love,

This made me smile.

It's been a lifetime away,

And here you are again.
