Do you remember when we met?
Fate hit your car which caused you to hit mine
I was calm the entire time
Because you were there
I didn’t know you yet but you were already calming me
Bringing me to a place where I can shed the armor
Drawing me in and making me smile
I didn’t know you yet, but I was falling in love
Do you remember when we first kissed?
That was the moment I knew I loved you
I kept that to myself for a while
I still barely knew you, but the hours together felt like years
Your touch was warming and exciting
Your lips were soft, and your kiss was gentle yet demanding
Your embrace brought me to a place where nothing else existed
I still barely knew you, but I was yours
Do you remember when we first made love?
That was also the first time I told you ‘I love you’
We had talked about you not being able to say it
So I wasn’t expecting it back
I wasn’t even expecting it from myself
I knew you well enough, and you had me hooked
The way you couldn’t commit to me, despite seeing no one else
You made up in actions what you couldn’t say in words
I knew you well enough, and I loved every inch of you
Do you remember when we first broke up?
You told me this was becoming too serious,
That I would grow tired of your lack of commitment
You called it a preemptive strike
I knew you better than myself, but you pushed me away
I begged you to reconsider, that you were making a mistake
I promised I would be okay with your commitment issues,
That I loved our relationship and you, exactly the way you are
I knew you better than myself, but you shattered my heart
Do you remember when we first got back together?
You realized what I meant to you, and I took you back instantly
My lack of hesitation took you off guard, overwhelmed you
In a “I don’t deserve her” kind of way, but you’re wrong
I love you more than I love myself, and I hope it shows
I always felt like I didn’t deserve someone as perfect as you
Your actions always spoke louder than words could ever
I love you more than I love myself, and I know it’s mutual

Keep it hidden
Pounding of a drum
Hush it now
Force it out
Illusion of safety

Hold me close
Hold me close, let me in
I know what I want
I won’t stop until it’s mine
You’re on the defense
I’m patient and persistent
Be patient and I’ll let you in
Help me find the doors
Hidden, unlocked, untouched
To get past each wall
I play offense and defense

I know you will never abandon what is yours
But I still dream that maybe we can share
What I want to believe I cherish more
I hear the words that I should heed
But all sense of reality is thrown aside
Because this is what I need to survive
Stupidity, desperation, anxiety, aggravation
Nothing is a mystery, everything is known
Still I hear only what I want to hear

Anything worth having has to be fought for
But what is worth having?
You know something is wrong
Should you fight for it?
Age grows with time
So will it turn right?
It’s possible to be too late
Fight now or fight later?
True love will never fade
How do you know what’s true?

Love, should you fight?
Time, can it be right?
Miles, can it thrive?
Years, can it survive?
Hard, should you try?
Easy, would it die?

of each other
inside and out
Open your heart to me
you have every bit of mine
and I don’t want it back
Vanquish every doubt we have
I have a feeling this
is for forever
Elevate each other
to new heights
places we never thought

In a place claimed
There is something
Not caused by you
I know I should end it
because I tell myself
that I don’t
want it anymore
when I think about
actually doing it
I find I cannot
I say it all day, everyday
Am I telling you, or myself?
We both have our doubts
For different reasons

Never having ice cream
Can hinder a life
Having ice cream every day
Ruins the treat
Ice cream once in a while
Highlights the good times,
and brightens the bad

I don’t know what I was thinking
Did I really think I loved the first?
Did I really think I wanted the second?
I’m completely done with the second
The first is now just another person
