Don’t watch me Cry

When I manage to say
the right words that touch your soul.

When you tell me
I mean more to you than the world.

When we’re together,
foreshadowing forever.

When you tell me,
I love you”, knowing you’re angry.

When we fight all night—
too fixated on who’s right.

When you pack everything
including my dreams.

When you moved on in life—
don’t watch me cry.

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.

Her Vows

I’m a bit nervous writing this today,
confessing the words I know I can’t say.
So, if you don’t mind
I’d like to take the time
to say what isn’t mine.

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.

I wish I can tell you, “You look great in white.”
and how much it hurts me with her at your side.
Her hand on your ring
I whisper silently
the words that came from me…

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.

When it’s all over, I’d like the chance
to have and to hold you in one last dance.
Swaying in starlight,
you lean in and I can see it in your eyes
telling me, “I’ve always loved the way you write.”

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.
