COUNTING STARS…CHASING RAINBOWS

A few years back when we met
I was the happiest lady to have ever lived
You were the perfect gentleman in my books
I got so enchanted by your looks
And then I said to myself “I’m never looking back”

Along the line, I shut my eyes
To every other thing in the world
You became the only person I chose to see
And your sweet baritone voice was the only lovely sound I heard
I could deny all truths
Just to listen to your lies
That was because you were the only one I chose to believe
I don’t know who or what changed
And I can’t believe time acted so fast
But I’ve come to realize how deceptive beauty can be
I can’t imagine I’m at the loosing ends again
I thought your words were assuring enough
And your love was never going to fade
Now, I realize I was only counting stars and chasing rainbows.

WHAT HAPPENED TO LOVE

brokenheartimageheader

Let’s not do it this way
We’ve come a long way to make it so obvious
The date nights
Teasing each other
All-through the night phone calls
The break-up to make-up times
What happened to all of that?
Are we just going to throw them all to the wind and pretend they never happened?
I’ve always had a “man” in you
And I just can’t sit back and watch you disappear without a trace
We were happy together…
…or so I thought
Not until you started acting funny
And getting angry at every little thing I did or said
I felt so comfortable in your arms
And felt safe telling you all my secrets
But you’ve become a stranger in just a twinkle of an eye
And I no longer trust that my heart is safe with you
I thought our love could stand the test of time
And prove to the world what it really means to be loved
But you took me to the peak
Made me feel so wanted
And left my heart crushing down like it didn’t matter at all
I really wish we could give it one more try
Because I just can’t go on with a broken heart
No, let’s get back together and make this work
One more try is all I’m asking for
Cause all I ever wanted was YOU.
