EXTRAORDINARY

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

TAKEN

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

A LOOK

There’s this look that I crave for
A tenderness in your gaze
A desperation in your wanting
A lust that sets my soul ablaze

The way I see my future
When looking into your eyes
Watch the years unravel before us
All the dreams and adventures we’ll realize

The way we gaze at each other lazily
In between sheets on a Sunday morning
The look of vulnerability in the mirror
When I realize how fast I’m falling

I just want you to look at me
The way sailors do at sea
Realizing the beauty and infinity
Of what this life of ours could be

GRENADE

You told me it’ll be okay
That we can figure it out
We can work our way out of this mess
Find the waters outside this awful drought

I told you it’s too difficult
That we have too much at stake
It seems like the floor is crumbling quickly
With every single step we take

If we keep fighting with all we have
With all the strength that we can muster
Soon enough this love we share
Will lose all of its shine and luster

So I’m truly sorry to tell you my darling
That we can’t possibly fight this crusade
It’s time for you to finally realize
That our love’s nothing but a time-ticking grenade

WHAT IF?

What if you’re just waiting around the corner
Looking forward for me to take a turn
What if you’re just patiently waiting
For the day your name I’ll come to learn

What if all I’ve ever truly wanted
Is finally within my grasp
What if your tired hands are as cold as mine
Longing for my hands to clasp

What if you’re the one who can finally show me
A love that I’ve never felt
What if you’re the ace that I’ve been looking for
The ace I’ve been waiting to be dealt

What if it could be us my love
We can live a life we’ve always wanted
This could be the beginning of our adventure
Nothing’s stopping us from living a life enchanted

TRANCE

Here I go again
Do I ever fucking learn?
This hyperactive heart of mine
Is a cause for great concern

I wanted a break from all of this
But life seems to have other plans
Once again I’ve caught myself stuck
In a hopelessly enchanted trance

O stars, o sky, o moon shining bright
What am I supposed to do?
I can’t help but hope and long for
This great love that’s overdue

I’ll just pray for the best, expect the worst
Try to protect this fragile heart
But my god how wonderful would it be
If this meant a beautiful new start

GLASS

I’m transparent as glass
There’s no room for me to hide
All of me is out in the open
The map of me you’ll need no guide

You see everything on my face
Every laugh line, every solemn pout
Every gesture of mine tells a story
It’s as if I’m walking inside out

What I feel for you won’t be felt in secret
For of hiding my feelings I’m incapable
Sometimes it’s hard being the kind of person
Who lays out all her cards on the table

HER

She sees the way he looks at her
Every subtle blink, every stolen glance
She sees the way he acts around her
The way she reels him in an unspoken dance

She sees the way he yearns for her
All the bated breaths, all the wishful sighs
She sees the way he feels around her
The longing in his eyes he just can’t deny

She wishes of nothing but to have his heart
As the jealousy achingly stirs
There’s nothing in this world she wants to be
Nothing in this world but her

OFFER

I offer my body despite myself
But they never end up wanting more
And I’m always left twice as empty
Wishing for the way it was before

BLIND

I was blind to all your ugliness
You never treated me with respect
You persisted despite all my pleas
Now all I have is the weight of my own regret

There’s nothing for us to go back to
The end of it as far as I can tell
And amidst your constant lies and manipulations
I somehow broke away from your spell
