Don’t Stand A Chance

I don’t have a choice.
I don’t stand a chance.
I will find your love and myself wrapped in your arms.
Without hesitance, without regret everything will be worth it.
Somehow I know I’m right even though everything tells me that I’m wrong.
For you this time is the only one worth remembering.
So we’ll take a page from our parents and pray that change will come through us.
Who knew that we could love so much after losing so much.
Thank God you didn’t put a lock on your heart.
Instead you kept me inside, but I’m not a prisoner, I stay by choice.
Be still I tell myself while I lie close to your heart.
You may not get it yet, but you know that you’re gonna get it good when you let me in.
Do you see the shape we take while we’re so close together?

You can’t make this up or push this away.
Despite our differences, I’m just like you.
Count the ways we’ve been there for each other.
Looking back we’ve never left each others side.
You’re not alone.
You know that I’ve got no place that I can go to get away from you.
Somebody gets me.
Somebody’s got me stopped in my tracks, bound by their beauty.
Even in the deep darkness of the night, it’s your memory that gets me through.
Whoever said that love was an option never met you.
I don’t have a choice.
I don’t stand a chance.
I know I’m in too deep.
