Saints and poets, they know it Maybe the neighbor does too Who’s to say Who’s to see The only one I know for sure is me Senses stirring, eyes blurring None understand why you speed Too much sight never known I’m blinded by the thought of you alone Waited twenty years before I could breathe in Here’s a kind of love that I can believe in Waited all my life before I could see A boy as beautiful as thee Saints and poets, don’t know it Chapters beriddled in rhyme Author please, answer me If those I love will always be with me Waited twenty years before I could breathe in Here’s a kind of love that I can believe in Waited all my life before I could see A boy as beautiful as thee Time forgets me, I let me Memories get lost every hour What’s the point? I’m carefree Someone to keep this moment close to me

Love Rest 05:22
How to weigh a soul swimming upstream? Are there angels listening? What am I to do? I’m still in love with you. If I told the truth you may be gone. Painfully, I’d carry on. Buried by the sea Love rest in easy peace He is all I’ve waited for A love I cannot leave Let us be Fill a special chest fit for our love With memories I’m thinking of. Toss it out to sea. Love rest in easy peace… I know I must wait here on the beach Till it’s far beyond my reach Buried by the sea Love rest in easy peace

Sleepwalker 05:34
Lovely and softly Ride on my sighs, sighs Morning in your eyes Darkened daylight rise Who knew you’d be so nice? Kiss me and whisper Wonder and choose This is all we do All we need to Carry us high From the inside Charming and lovely Perfectly bright Why Don’t you stay the night Taking off the lights Oooh don’t be so polite I sleepwalk I apologize if I come as a surprise Don’t find me strange Or worry when I change I like to go on journeys sometimes But don’t let me stay if you can’t smile when I try to play You’re welcome to join me, so come and enjoy me We’ll wake up together by day If you stay by my side I can promise you I’ll get you home by the dawn And you can let yourself wait Give you time to contemplate I know the feelings are strong So don’t be so patient And don’t think it over too much Just run with me and have fun with me I’ll give you presents and such La la la la la la la la la La la la la la La la la la la la la la La la la la Charming and lovely Nothing to lose You play by all the rules I like what you do Ooh, everything you do Lucky and lovely I think I might Spy something in your eyes Darkened daylight rise Who knew you’d be so nice? Kiss me and whisper Wonder and choose This is all we do All we need to carry us high From the inside Charming and lovely Perfectly bright Why don’t you play the night? Taking off the lights Who knew you’d be so nice?

I will wait Silently And take my time Because true love can come quietly Sneaking by How long must I wait? Is my lover running late? Lonely I am, but happy I’ll be When I find the one for me I’ve been told that love will come and go So if it ever comes let me know Until that time I’ll wait silently Listening carefully, quietly If you whisper my name I hope I hear you So if you ever do I hope that I’m near you For when the moment comes and my lost and lonely heart succumbs I’ll be thankful I waited silently Listening carefully, quietly If you whisper my name I hope I hear you So if you ever do I hope that I’m near you Speak softly to my soul, till it stirs out of control And there you’ll be Waiting for me Silently, perfectly If you whisper my name I hope I hear you So if you ever do I hope that I’m near you Speak softly to my soul, till it stirs out of control And there you’ll be Waiting for me Silently, perfectly

Iris 05:16
Must you treat me this way? You filled up my bouquet Then made me throw it away And why would you need me to thrive? In the coldest weather You can survive Am I right in thinking you’re gone? I’m still in disbelief our season was oh, so brief God knows, you’re not my true love. So why am I so blue and missing you, love? Some of the flowers we’ve planted have bloomed Give me a sign I can’t wait or assume How could you need me then leave me behind Empty and losing my mind? I wasn’t always so good I took your love for granted cause I thought that I could And it grew in a strange, crazy place The iris can’t change climates Not at this pace What a twist in our little tale You led me in the woods Then left me ‘lone on the trail. And I was always on top I tell myself the distance is what made you stop. Some of the flowers we’ve planted have bloomed Give me a sign I can’t wait or assume How could you need me then leave me behind Empty and losing my mind?

Love’s a blessing And a test I’m a mess And you deserve the best I wish that love were fair And I’d be always there But you should know I’m scared Please don’t leave me like you could Though you should I’m nice but I’m not good I’d give you all I can If I could love one man But I’ve got no such plan. I warn my heart is growing weary by the day I wish a simple love were clearly on its way I’ve done so much wrong, and dealt so much pain Stringing them along and lengthening the chain So off I’ll wander to the cold Life untold A stranger growing old Cause I can’t see ahead The life I never led So how am I to know If I should stay or go And I may never change But I hope I do some day
