lead by faith
I know where my heart is.
Why do I feel so torn apart?
Maybe I should get back to the start.
At a young age this girl had me sparked.
Me, having girlfriend after girlfriend.
Her, having boyfriend after boyfriend.
Our connection never dripped a drop.
Maybe once or twice,
before the ball dropped.
The feeling never stopped.
Soon we grew apart.
Out of sight,
but never out of mind.
Rarely did we check in.
We both new this feeling wouldn't end.
Five years pass, or was it six?
at the end of '06
we were both in for some surprising...
Our paths crossed.
I don't think our feelings changed a bit.
Stories we exchanged.
How strange it became.
She resided in the south.
I stayed in the north.
I had plenty of time.
So I went back and forth.
Ringing in the New Year once in Vegas.
The next in New York.
Once again the situation came up short...
she's a member of the '09 graduating class.
I was in, and she was on some other
June we finally met.
From Greenville to Greenwood,
Ashville to Arden county.
Up the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Pisgah mountains.
Next was Grave yard falls.
On to the Paddle Inn,
Down the Nanthala river. (land of the afternoon sun)
Up the Gorge of the Appalachian Trail.
Independence day was spent on Love Isle., at Calhoun Falls.
If we only new how much pain this would cause.
Once again our relationship is taking off.
Enjoying ever piece
of this life changing experience.
Knowing it will all end soon.
We may have blew
it all on the full moon.
If so, It was a great ride.
I had a blast the whole time.
Whatever happens back home,
We'd be fools to be surprised.
Together or apart,
she will always have a piece of my heart.
Once I got a taste
never did I hesitate
to give chase.
Or was I just lead by fate.
