One Day at a Time

I just want you to know
On firm ground you stand
In a house made of rock
That won’t wash away with the sand

I questioned myself many times before
What am I getting myself into
Trying to fight what I was feeling
But hoping you were feeling the same too

I kept thinking you’re just a friend
As long as I pretend not to care
I won’t lose what we have
But my heart I continued to bare

You’ve breathed life into me
I fought the emotions I felt
I didn’t want you to ever know
That my heart was starting to melt

But know we are right there together
The same doubts, questions and fears
Know that I will hold you ever so close
And never leave you in tears

We’ve both been broken in pieces
Wondering if all the king’s men
Could really pick it all up
And put us back together again

There are parts of us that are exposed
Light drifting into a once dark place
Seeing the wall start to crumble
And life’s scars start to erase

I just can’t seem to get enough of you
And so many questions run through my head
Scared of the day you realize you don’t want this
Scared of the day my heart pours crimson red

I will keep your heart in a glass case
Take extra care of what you’ve given me
I will hold you ever so tenderly
And with time this you will see

What I feel is so surreal
What I feel is nothing but sincere
Let’s take a once in a lifetime chance
And see where it all goes from here
