The One That Got Away
I don’t know sometimes,
If I want someone,
Or if I just want the potential.
I want a love song on the radio,
I am the girl who can hold her head high and say,
I am strong.
You ask me,
And I know and don’t want to know,
But I answer.
Because this is a willow at its breaking point,
Seconds from two destinations.
I cannot lie to you,
But I will not lie to myself.
The Way You Hold Tonight
Things become real tonight.
The moon glows and the stars twinkle,
But I’m alone in a world of thoughts,
Memories and constellations.
The buildings are so familiar,
Home in the woods,
My little bubble, an oasis draped in wood and comfort.
I’ve been in my head and in my little world,
Needing a cleansing, needing a fresh start.
Take me home tonight and be gentle with my soul, comfort my spirit.
Today, you become real.
Tomorrow, I reach for sunshine,
Moving in, and moving on.
