Rain Dance


The way I move has changed because of you.

The way I move has changed because of you.

You really left your mark
The way I move has changed because of you
I’m stepping around the ripples you’ve made
Dancing through the sounds that echo from your being
You’ve captured this area under your reign with a thousand words that shaped my world
There’s no stopping you

A million drops of you fell onto me
Dripping with beauty
Showering me day & night
Rain may come down
But it’s you that always soaks right through
Past the layers made to cover what’s exposed
You came in & ran down the very fabric of my being
Everytime I see you coming I’m dying to know which way you’ll go
There is no season without you
All my life flows around your ways

I’m surrounded by all that you do, now that I know the truth
My sky falls because nothing compares to you
There’s no stopping you from raining down your blessings on me
Go on, fall onto me
Fall into me

Frames Per Second


Live with each spark we make.

Live with each spark we make.

Second by second.
Live with each spark we make.
There’s no need to rush.
There’s no absence between seconds, only between embraces made minutes apart.
We let ourselves get wrapped up in the throes of separation.
I miss you & all the little things.
From day to night our senses take flight until we meet again.
Sometimes I just need you to slow it down.
Second by second.

Days Go By


Hold on to that light.

Hold on to that light.

Where does the day go?
I can’t seem to keep up
With the Sunlight & the cool breeze
How could I not feel at ease?
I should make the most of today & the people that come my way
And like the Sun, when I am gone, my light still glows in the dark of the Moon
Hold on to that light

Part of the Plan


Can I leave you alone?
For more than a minute, for a day or longer?
I don’t want to lose you & all the steps that we’ve taken to get this far.
Don’t go too far.
I need you to understand that this was not part of the plan.
And I’m glad.

I couldn’t have planned this, no.
It is what it is, it comes naturally.
I guess if we can stand it, we’ll just take it as it comes.
Take it as it is before its gone.
I’m not taking you for granted.
This is what I wanted all along.
You are where I need to be.
Don’t go anywhere.

I can’t make this up even if I tried.
I need you to understand that I didn’t see this coming, it wasn’t part of the plan.
You give me something to look forward to.
And I’m glad.

Last Night


Last night I realized that my world didn’t revolve around you.
Sure we were out of control, but I decided to stop puffing and pass on going another round with you.
I paid for your ways after we made plans and you wasted time that can’t be spent again.
I’m not all about you when I’ve got more going on with my eyes closed.
Now you’re one of the many instead of the one.
You can’t deny that you denied me of the thing I needed the most.
You.

No more talking behind closed doors from the opposite sides.
I ignored so many red alerts and warnings for you.
I stood my ground and took you down a few pegs for your own good.
You’re not the person I met all those years ago.
I know all about you now and nothing you say can change that.
To be honest you caused the fire in my bones and now I’m going to light the world up.
With or without you, I’m good.
Can you say the same, I don’t think so.

I kept your secrets to keep you close.
Looked the other way so I could keep looking you in the eye.
I lost myself in you, but not completely, I know that now that I’ve turned away.
Somewhere along the way I got tired of covering for you.
I was so focused on your needs that I forgot to pay attention to my own.
Always thought that you knew what you were doing.
But you had my head spinning when you put your wayward world in it.
Now worlds apart I’m heading for new avenues.

Done waiting & debating, talking myself into you.
I just wanted to be yours, not his or hers or theirs.
All of these regrets are nothing new, but the love I’m getting is.
Last night I had a good time and I did it all without you.
If I have my way, every day and night will be like last night.
Never thought that things would end up like this, but now I can’t wait to do this again.

Never in your wildest dreams could I have been the person that I got to be while I was out on the road with some good company.
My first time fears fell away as I got close to someone new.
They could hear the smile on my face as I got away from what I knew and fell into love anew.
My heart is still racing.
In the quiet afterthought of everything that we said and did, I realized that I did this for me.
This is what I was chasing after.
I’m more real than I’ve ever been.
Now that I’ve turned around and danced to this new song, I’m free.
I’m free.
