In Your Arms
In your arms is my favourite place to be
Our body's intertwined
Fitting together perfectly
Like neighbouring jigsaw pieces
Now I've found my missing piece
I am complete
When I'm in your arms my heart can't stop smiling
I'm floating on cloud nine
And I hope you will always be mine
When I close my eyes as we kiss
I never want to open them again
It feels euphoric and I ca...

The First Time We Met
The first time we met I said "maybe I shouldn't have done it"
You said "but nothing bad happened did it?"
I thought "not yet", but my gut feeling was that you were different
And I got butterflies in my stomach
Our relationship is still very new
But already I can't imagine my life without you
We see each other almost daily
And you call me your pretty lady

I run my hands through your auburn hair
Feeling it's silky softness
Drinking in its sweet, apple scent
I'm hypnotised by your smell
Enchanted under your spell
You gently kiss my hand, my neck, my cheek
And every part of me melts
My breathing follows an unfamiliar rhythm
My heart beats the way it's been longing to beat
Your lips are close enough to kiss
My eyes stay...

Sometimes I can't even talk
I just want to be left alone
With my own thoughts
Other times I don't want to be on my own
I just want someone to hold me
And make me feel safe and at home
Sometimes I can barely walk
I just want to stay in bed all day
Hoping the pain will go away
Other times I want to fight it and carry on
Even though I know it might bring a flare up on

Feel Like I'm Crazy
The doctor tells me "it's Fibromyalgia"
I've never heard of it before
But I think finally I have an answer
For all of my pain
But it doesn't take me long to decipher
It's something that they can't explain
Do they think that I'm insane?
They don't understand it
There is no cure
It's a curse not an answer
And I don't know how much more of this I can endure

Why do we choose to make each other suffer?
When it's so much easier to support one another
Why do we argue and relentlessly fight?
So we can smugly say that we were right
Why is it so important not to be proven wrong?
Do we think it entitles us to some kind of gong?
Does it not matter if we hurt each other's feelings?
Or worse, completely destroy another human being?

The Trouble With Temperature
In the winter when it's freezing
If I don't wrap up warm I'll be wheezing, coughing, sneezing
Making my chest & back sore
My joints hurt me even more
My hands and feet have turned to ice
Hot drinks & soup feel so nice
I just want to stay indoors all day wearing my fluffy PJs!
You'd think I'd prefer it when it's hot
But let me assur...

When I met you I was in a dark place
All I needed was a friendly face
I was tired, in pain, stressed out and lost
You were there for me when I needed you the most
You made me laugh
You gave me a cuddle
You listened to me when I was in a muddle
You always gave me plenty of your time and attention
You listened to my worries for hours each night
And helped me see things...

There's nothing that can beat
Walking along the beach
With the waves hitting your feet
In the scorching heat
Miles of soft, golden sand
I run some through my hand
Waves splashing against the shore
Is a sound that I adore
Feeling the warm breeze
Puts me at such ease
I tilt my head up towards the sun and smile
And close my eyes for a while
This beach is my paradise
