Rid me of this fantasy
Stop me from living a lie
This world of pretense I’ve come to adhere to
These realities I’ve come to deny

What we have isn’t real
It’s as empty as a hollow drum
This contrived world of feigned togetherness
Is starting to leave me empty and numb


One touch, one kiss is all I need
To bring this love to life
Let me feel the yearning in your skin
See the hunger in your eyes

I need to know that I’m all you want
That I’ll be all you’ll need
Because I want you, I want it all
Love, lust and all it’s greed

So come find me in the sky tonight
We’ll meet amongst the stars
I’ll softly kiss your longing lips
To the beating of our hearts


There’s something extraordinary for me
It’s waiting just around the corner
The older I become and the wiser I get
The more I feel its presence getting closer

My restless soul and my eager heart
Will find it’s place in this world
The boldness that I bring to the table
Will surely not be left unheard

Can’t wait for the future and what it brings
And all that life will come to be
I be damned if I don’t end up living
A life amazing and extraordinary


I’m hopelessly drawn to you
In ways I can neither explain nor define
You are my life’s irresistible brazen force
My inebriating sip of wine

You touch me in places that are hidden deep
Places that no one has ever seen
You’re the relentless rush pulsing through my veins
My own addicting black caffeine


What am I to you, I need to know
Because I can’t handle the uncertainty
Am I a fleeting thought, a passing whim
Or am I your newfound clarity

Tell me how you feel my love
Am I a cause to live for, a call to action?
Or am I merely just a gust in the wind
To you another ephemeral attraction


I’m the earth and you’re the sun
I’ve always gravitated towards your shine
My world revolves around your axis
Your rhyme and reason, your space and time

No matter where I go or how fast I spin
All I ask is you put your faith in me
Because my love, my darling, I’m yours to have
Within all of these planets and galaxies


You’re a vortex that keeps pulling me in
The whirlwind within you keeping me banded
I keep getting caught in all of your spirals
Distraught in your ripples leaving me stranded


If you’re getting tired of our love
No one is forcing you to stay
No hands are trying to hold you back
You’re free to walk away

But trust me our memories will haunt you
When you realize what you’ve forsaken
Oh my love, my darling you’ll come to know
That by me you’re surely taken


Welcome to the city with food so divine
We’ll wait in the cold no matter how long the line
Oh deep dish pizza, you were one big tease
At least we got our fix from the great Lou Malnati’s

The Girl and the Goat, my oh my
I ended the meal with a satisfied sigh
Au Cheval’s burgers, some of the nation’s best
We both left the restaurant quite impressed

Riveting museums and endless exhibitions
Getting nauseous on the Skydeck so high
While looking down the 113 floors
I literally felt like I was going to die

But now that it’s over, it’s back to reality
I’m leaving the city with one big smile
With wonderful memories to hold onto
Oh Chitown, you were surely worth my while


You’re a puzzle I’ve been trying to put together
But the pieces never seem to fit
You’re a riddle I’ve been wanting to answer
But it seems that I’ve lost all my wit

You’re a theory I’ve been dying to prove
But the data always gives me some doubt
You’re an equation I’ve been attempting to solve
But none of the formulas ever tend to work out

These mysteries of you keep me coming back
Despite how hard I try to start anew
Because no matter where I end up in life
I always find myself caught in the riddle of you
