To Someone I Adore
Thank you for listening to me For all the times I wanted to talk When I need you most You made the stars shine so brightly just for me to see
I'm trying to figure out, Should I believe the things you say Because all I've been getting are broken promises and shattered dreams that fades away into the sky Everytime your mouth babbles all I HEAR ARE LIES.
What Is Love
I'm sitting here wanting to know What is the true meaning of love It feels like your heart longs for direction Love is like a four way street
Hey Love I see you every night In my dreams, You are tall, dark and lovely Your eyes is deep brown and it cuts through my soul Hey Love I like when you put your strong muscle
In Your Eyes
In your eyes I see pain and sorrow In your eyes I see emptiness that you are lost and you can't and don't want to be found..
A Mother's Love
Here you are growing inside of me I touch my stomach to feel you kick To me that's pain But to God it's life waiting for you come into the world
He's stands six feet tall and women if you see him Ya'll will want it all The smile, The eyes and the hair. A man like him comes very rare
To Whom It May Concern
To Whom It May Concerns I'm just a kid who wants be held and protecred from everything that is bad. To Whom it may concerns I'm woman that wants same respect has a man today. To Whom it may concerns I'm looking in the mirror and I'm see everything in me that I want to change on the outside
Mr. Dirty Man
Hello Mr.Dirty Man I've been watching you You don't know my name, But I know your game Here you are trying rob, steal and KILL Just to get one night of a high thrill
The Merry Go Round
Around and around we go tossing words around to eachother Just like a merry go round, The hurtful words you are saying to me Cut through my heartso deep like a razor blade. You made a promise to me that we was forever
So much depend upon the sunbeaming Down hard on my face. Thw dew in the morning on the flower Flowers blossoms in the spring air
You Can'T Out Smart The Playa
Hey, YOU I see you everywhere You go and eveything you do Here you are married to one, But sleeping with another
As I look in the mirror I see all my flaws and impurities I have. Wondeing WHY I look so deformed
Love is so sweet like honey It feels so wonderful it makes you so high like you floating in the clouds.
I'm trying to figure out, Should I believe the things you say
Because all I've been getting are broken promises
and shattered dreams that fades away into the sky
Everytime your mouth babbles all I HEAR ARE LIES.
I tried to imagine you and I old and gray
sitting around with our kids and grand kids.
But that was an imaginary dream that had cross my mind
Out of ALL the things you have taken from me
All I have is my Sanity that is still intact.
