Month: January 2020

Perfect (Cover)

When I’m all alone and the world is asleep,
I wish for that someone who’s dreaming of me.
I need a man to sweep me off my feet
and dry my tears with just a kiss on my cheek.

I thought I knew what love was
but had it all backwards.
I miss the one who was right in my life.
Now that I’m on my own
your side is growing cold.
If only you were here tonight.

Grasping for the stars and not between your arms.
Lying here in the dark, afraid to go to sleep.
I can feel you touch my hair but I know you’re not here
to kiss me. Baby, I’m sorry. You were perfect to me.

Another round of Memories

In the company of January’s silence,

I raise a glass in remembrance

to who I used to be.

Drunk off flashbacks,

I timidly raise a glass—

Another round of memories.

 

Here’s to the smiles I’ve lost

and all the pain I’ve caused—

I raise my glass to you.

To all the future misadventures

and other endeavors

I’m about to do.

 

May the years of mistakes

show me a better way

to be the ideal me.

Let me fill this glass again—

happiness, sadness…Fill it to the brim!

Another round of memories

please?
