Masks (Pt. 2)


photostudio_1456278786852

Why would anyone want the truth when the lie is more entertaining?
Give the people what they want.
Smile through the storm.
Pain isn’t beautiful, it’s forgettable.

I can’t let it show.
Who I am is not who I’ve been.
But you only see what you want.

From the way I talk, to the way I move.

I wear my wrongs and leave the past where it belongs.
While my shortcomings are missing I’ll tell you everything you want to hear.
Reckless discovery overtake me.
I can’t stay the same.

See the pain, feel the pleasure.
Hiding behind a good time is more than meets the eye.
If I show you who I really am, you can’t tell nobody.
Turn the lights down low and I’ll let you in.

I’ll show you something real.

Masks (Pt. 1)


image

It’s hard to shake such a simple need
Love was never a lie
Do you dare to bare yourself to my devotion?

You look like a dream, but that’s the problem
In this light everything seems so right
You don’t have to pretend to be perfect

We can live with our imperfections
Don’t tell me what I want to hear
Tell me what you need

What are you hiding behind?

I wish you were real
I didn’t come to be entertained
Let’s lay this act to rest

Cancel all these complications
No one’s heart wants to be mistaken
We’ll confess our weaknesses until there’s none left

Show me something real

Connect


image

I look at you, and I don’t know what comes next.
Every thought comes to a stop, emotions keep running.
I feel everything through you.
I become nothing and everything.

We become silence and sound.
There’s pure poetry in the way we connect.
Something I can’t define.
I know all I need to know, because I know you.

You are my forever.

Take Over


image

When I want to fight over nothing
Quiet the fires raging in my mind
When I’m bothered by words that aren’t even true
Give me a good word so true there’s nothing to question

When I’m not sure of anything
Remind me of all the things I wish I knew
When all eyes are on me
Show me that you’re the only one worth seeing

When everything takes me under
Take over
When I’m the worst of the worst
Get the best of me to rise to the surface

Take over
I need you now
Take over

Something in the Night


image

Share your story with me as I look into your eyes

When your soul’s curious your body follows suit
The more we see, the more we wish to know
Discovery is supposed to be different
Let’s live with the night and the light at our backs

Your touch, I deserve it

Utter that which sets you free under moonlight
Fill what was empty with love as the ocean mirrors the sky
Our sense of self sees something in one another that refuses to be washed away
Drown out all that keeps us apart

Kiss yesterday goodbye

We’ll go deeper without hesitation
Peace of mind between trusted fingertips
Time can’t curb this curiosity
Everything is nothing at first
Lasting appeal warrants repeated viewings

Something in the night erases all that’s black and white
Something in the night calms and ignites our souls
Something in the night makes us true
Something in the night
