SUMMER HAZE

I loved you in a summer haze
Amidst blue waters and glinting shores
In the warmth of bonfires on the beach
In the gooeyness of toasted smores

I loved you in a summer haze
Alive in a world of play
Listening to the music and dancing to the beat
Where it felt like nothing could go astray

I loved you in a summer haze
In the middle of a fantasy
But as the sun set and the winds got colder
I snapped back to my reality

So my love I let you set with the sun
And just waited for another season
But if I could’ve found a way to make you stay
I would have given you all the reasons

But our love only lasts in the warmth of sunshine
It doesn’t hold power in storms of rain
And as much as I wanted to ask you to stay
There are things I know that just can’t remain

ELECTRIC SKY

Let my hand guide you through the crowd
Amidst this urban wonderland
Let the neon colors flood your being
With everything surreal and grand

Let’s take our chance in this fairytale
We’ll be as reckless as can be
We’ll run about hasty and heedless
In this wild, chaotic symphony

So kiss my lips, hold my hand
See the glimmer in my eye
One day I’ll look back on the time you loved me
Underneath the electric sky

COACHELLA DREAMS

As dust turns into sandstorms
Kiss me under cotton candy skies
I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long
Can’t you hear my wishful sighs?

While the sun starts setting in the glowing desert
Pull me closer to you my dear
And as the music transcends into the crowd
I’ll whisper sweet nothings in your ear

COLORS

Give me love in dark blood red
I’ll give you yellow sunshine smiles
The light brown gleam of your eyes
Makes me want to stay awhile

Hold my hand amidst an orange sunset
Explore with me through a forest green
Let’s lie under a light blue sky
With fluffy white clouds in between

Love me even when my soul turns black
I beg you not to look away
Promise to love me through the good and bad
Through all the colors that come our way

FIRE

There’s a shade of fire I see in you
The same shade of fire in me
A color of flame that fiercely glows
That’s burning with intensity

We’ll warm each other up through winter nights
We’ll burn in summer ablaze
Keep each other alive through the dull and trite
Through all the humdrum haze

POTENTIAL

I see who you can come to be
But not acquainted with who you are
The things you can potentially amount to
So much more than this subpar

I fooled myself all this time
Reality became inconsequential
Because I was never truly in love with you
But I was in love with your potential

NARCOTIC

You’ll beg, you’ll plead, you’ll light your votive candles
You’ll choose the short end of the stick
You’ll follow me into the depths of hell
If only just to get your fix

You’re enraptured by the mayhem of my mind
Seduced by my thoughts so chaotic
Oh boy you damn well know by now
That in me you’ve found your very own narcotic

TOO MUCH

In the heat of flaming fire
In the dehydration of a drought
In the cries of roaring thunder
And in the sullenness of a pout

In the gold of blazing sunshine
In the wetness of pouring rain
In the desperation of a pleading voice
And in the hollowness of pain

All I truly want is you with me
All I’ll ever need is your touch
Oh please tell me my sweet darling
Am I asking for too much?

JUNE

Are you the one I’ve been looking for?
The one to lead me to the stars
Our destined fate to circumnavigate
Restless nomads that we are

We’ll meet in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge
Under the blaze of the summer sky
Amidst the bloom of the month of June
With eager hearts to satisfy

Give me your word and I’ll give you my wildness
The world’s ours in reckless abandon
There’s no denying the fire we have
Set alight by souls impassioned

DALLIANCE

I’ve had enough of this dalliance
Of this one week love affair
The truth is I question all of it
What’s real, what’s not, what’s even really there

The truth is we’re just using each other
Or maybe I’m just using you
To compensate for the loneliness
To have a chance at feeling something new

Honestly it could have been anyone
I’m in love with the idea of who you are
There’s nothing that makes you special my dear
Nothing that truly sets you apart

You’re fleeting, replaceable
And you’ve made the mistake of falling for me
I’ll choose to tag and string you along
But you’ll be too blind to clearly see

That I am not the love of your life
And you were never meant to be mine
But till the truth becomes too blatant to us
We’ll choose to waste each other’s time
