HOLLOW GROUND

The night was young when I met you
The sun was barely setting in
You gave me a smile I couldn’t resist
Sending my naive heart into a tailspin

But before the hour struck midnight
You where nowhere to be found
And as I reached for you in the darkness my love
I felt myself fall through hollow ground

LAST

This one is the last of it
The last of my mourning woes
About another potential love gone awry
About a story brought to a sudden close

All these heartbreaks keep on coming
So much that I can barely catch my breath
And I’m hanging on by my last thread
Of my waning patience put to the test

But there’s not much that I can do
There’s nothing left for me to say
I’ve expressed all that I possibly can
While writing this in a café

So calm your heart and close your eyes
And choose to gracefully let it go
Try to recover from all these fallen loves
Despite the healing slow

Because time will eventually heal all wounds
I know it’s a clichĂ©
The sun will come out whether you like it or not
And tomorrow’s another day

FINALITY

If you don’t want me then just say it
There’s no need for civility
Just cut the chord and cut the crap
Just give me the finality

Because there’s no need to have it linger
No need to have it go on
Free my heart from it’s hopeful beating
Let me know you’re truly gone

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

FIGHT

They say to fight for what you want
No matter what the cost
And this I always tend to do
Despite all that could be lost

But now I’ve come to realize
Why should I put everything at stake
Because when I fight for something all I’m fighting for
Is another chance for my heart to break

HIDDEN AGENDA

You’re my selfish wish, my greedy prayer
My rainbow’s pot of gold
A secret I’ve been holding onto
But in desperation told

You’re my grinning devil, my smirking sin
With an allure so deeply pervasive
You’re my hidden agenda, my bag of mischief
With charm so intently persuasive

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

BETWEEN

In between time zones
In perpetual transition
Caught in between what’s then and now
Suspended in an endless confliction

Stuck in a constant limbo
Always finding myself in in-betweens
No roots to keep me grounded or wings to fly
No one to hold onto by any means

So I’ll just stay suspended in midair
Till someone chooses to pull me down
Because I’m always wanting to be discovered
I’m always waiting to be found
