Walk In the Park

Walk In the Park

I remember when we used to walk in the park
We used to look at the birds
We stayed until dark
There was a lot of sight seeing

We walked together side by side
Then we would sit on the bench
We would talk about the future
And how we would never split

Those were the days
When our love was strong and good
We were so in sync
Even without talking, we understood

As we walked through the park
We would talk about everything
This was our usual spot
On summer and winter days

Oh what a memory
Oh how beautiful that was
Sometimes I want to have that back

Should we reconnect or stay moved on?

The Anger Inside of You

The Anger Inside of You

I can feel your spirit
When I walked into the room
You have so much anger inside
What did I do to you?

Why are we not cool?
Is the hatred growing?
When you shut down on me
This is what you are implying

Things don’t have to be this way
Talk to me, let’s communicate
If you can’t express to me what’s wrong
Then we’re working on our escape

Why did you ask me to stay?
If you had something wrong in your heart
If things keep going this way
We are destined to fall apart

It really makes me ache
We’re at a breaking point
This is the sound of heartbreak
That sound makes so much noise

This anger is building inside of you
Everyone can tell
You won’t give me any clues

And now our relationship will fail

It’s Time for Me to Leave

It’s Time for Me to Leave

There is something that I want to confess
While you were thinking of me
I was not thinking about you
I just can’t hurt you anymore
We’ve grown apart and so distant
I don’t want you full of animosity
So the best thing that I can do
Is to just leave
You can have this house
I’ll give you all the keys
I can’t live here anymore
It’s time for me to leave
Part of this is my fault
I knew this was coming
I should have opened up my mouth
And gave us a chance to solve it

You pushed me away
I just couldn’t handle it
You neglected me for days
Those days became months and weeks
We’re going through this routine
You know we’re not happy
I don’t think we can save this
This makes me feel so crappy
I thought we could work
I’m sorry I was wrong
We both should have what we deserve

Let’s leave each other alone

You’re taking me for granted

You’re taking me for granted

I feel that you’re taking me for granted
If we keep doing this road
There won’t be any love left standing
I’m not a robot that you can put on hold

Naturally I’m a nice person
That doesn’t mean that I’m gullible
You can’t put me on auto pilot
That is the start of our troubles

You have this impression
That you can treat me any way you wish
Love is a powerful emotion
But it needs to be fed to stay lit

It takes only a simple gesture
To show your appreciation
That will keep anger from festering
We can keep stable relations

Stop taking me for granted
Or I will be gone
This isn’t an ultimatum

I just respect myself too much to be wronged

Beginning To Fall

Beginning To Fall

We had just had a fight
Both of us were fuming and mad
We decided to talk
We expressed the feelings we had
We talked about how we felt
Then as we were sitting in the car
We both were trying not to look at each other
Have we taken things too far?

And then something happened
We grabbed each other’s hand
We both broke down
And expressed our romance
I told you how I felt
And you did the same
You told me I was a piece of you
And in your heart I’ll always remain

I couldn’t match the power
Of what you said with your words
But I felt the same as you did
I knew we were still in love
But our circumstances changed
And staying together created unrest
We needed to end based on logic
Separating was for the best

I didn’t want to us end
We both still loved each other with our all
Why did life do this to us?

At that time, we were beginning to fall

Don’t Tell Me

Don’t Tell Me

When we first met there was a fire between us
And those images of our desire promised sweet love
I watched what happened as you changed on me
Who is this person you turned out to be?

I don’t understand, I cared for you, I thought our love was true
I remember when I first met you, when we were new
From the start I gave you my heart
Why did you do this to me?  You hurt me so deep

Don’t tell me that you want me
When you lie to me so easily
Don’t tell me that you’ll be with me
When you plan to leave me lonely

Don’t tell me that you love me
Don’t say those words that you really don’t mean, don’t tell me
I’m not a fool I won’t believe what you tell me

I will be strong through this pain
I will move on to another day
I won’t stay down or settle for less
I know my worth, I deserve the best
I will find a love that’s honest with me

I don’t want to hear what you say

Don’t tell me anything

I Love Our Moments

 I Love Our Moments

When I looked into your eyes
You make my heart beat faster
It races faster with every second in time
Our love that we feel is what matters

You made me feel some ways
Feelings I never felt before
I’ve had love in the past
But I’ve only been in love when you entered my door

I’m enjoying each moment
Every minute is great with you
My inside is filled with conflict
My fear battles with truth

When we kiss, you feel so tender
You make my heart surrender
When we touch I feel the sensation
The intensity is so strong, how do I resist temptation?

A part of me feels that this happened so fast
But this connection was meant to last
From the first day, it was easy to talk to you

After we opened up, you didn’t change your view
