Withdrawal


Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.

Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.

Lay your head down.
Don’t be afraid to drown in the warmth of this caress.
Retreat from your body while we lose track of time.
This is not something you think about, it’s something you simply feel.
Your touch is a good kind of high.
And every time we get low you find some way to blow my mind.
Even when you can’t take no more, you yearn for it all the same.
Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.
You want it all the time & you don’t even know why.
Take comfort in taking chances.
Find rest in light of this caress.
Don’t hurry your mind.
Don’t worry your time.

Embedded (Less Is More)


Some things are said better without words.
Some things don’t have to be spoken to be heard.
I know this every time I look into your eyes.
You don’t have to say a word to get your point across.
I can’t deny this.

Hold on to me without laying a finger on me.
Follow me everywhere without taking a step.
You take my breath away just by looking my way.
They say less is more, but I’ll ignore them.
Because I want more of you.

Never have I tried to sit back & watch, always chasing after something.
Never been one to wait, it’s always now or never.
You came to me & saw something I couldn’t see.
After everything I just want to hear you say anything.
I can’t deny this.

Hold on to me without laying a finger on me.
Follow me everywhere without taking a step.
You take my breath away just by looking my way.
They say less is more, but I’ll ignore them.
Because I want more of you.

What you are to me will never change.
Once you’re in, can’t get you out & I wouldn’t want to anyway.
Tell me your secret, I’ll be your shelter.
Your love remains even when things are not the same.
Your ways are embedded in me like a tattoo.

They say less is more, but I’ll ignore them.
Because I want more of you.

On & On (Under Red Lights)


We just passed the city lights like the night life was nothing at all.
We don’t want to be entertained, we simply need love.
I wish I had the courage to do & say as I feel without taking this sip of Corona.
Fill my cup with something other than alcohol.

Red light, green light.
I’m used to waiting my turn, but you shouldn’t have to wait.
Before I go, you should know.

And we’ll go, on & on.
On & on, past life as we knew.
On & on, to something new, something more.
We keep moving towards something we can call our own.

I’m sorry I’m so selfish.
Can I let you in on a little secret?
It took some time, but I think I’ve fallen for you in the worst way.
And your silence only makes me want to speak up.
I’m tired of running & drowning myself in distractions that only give me temporary satisfaction.
I’ve had my fun & I’ve tried my hand at loving anyone that came my way.
Being physical leaves me emotional after the fact, call it a delayed reaction.

I want it all, something I can feel deeper than skin deep, I wouldn’t mind if you stayed too long.
So I took the fall, I said my piece & jotted it all down, so you wouldn’t forget it.
No, I don’t regret it, don’t forget it.

And we’ll go, on & on.
On & on, past life as we knew.
On & on, to something new, something more.
We keep moving towards something we can call our own.

So here I am, sitting under a red light with no intention of stopping.
I wish you’d come & find me.
Read me my rights, lock me away, I know I’m not innocent, I’m jaded as can be.
But with you I can’t help but to be kind & unwind.
So take your time, cus I took mine.
I know that you’ll come find me when the moment’s right.

Come & Go


Never been a believer.
Don’t care for what they say.
Hearts are made for beating, love is something you say.
Faith just sounds nice, but praying takes away from the chances I could be taking.
Expectations & reality will never cross paths unless I do something.
If only patience didn’t wait so long to get here, I’d still be where I was.
Nowhere at all.

The rest can come & go.
I just thought you’d like to stay.
Not thinking too much of it.
Feelings get in the way.
Not quite a distraction, never an oversight, always here to show me something others don’t see.
But we’d make them see it.

Can’t ignore it anymore.
That wall I hid behind was slowly coming down.
As you listened I wondered if anybody had ever wanted to know me like this before.
I never said anything before because I was afraid of the answer.
The answer is in the feeling, the words are just dressing.
Don’t pass words or use her name.
You were right.
Don’t listen to the words, listen to what you’re feeling.
The rest can come & go.
