THESE HEARTS CAN BEAT AGAIN

Can you still remember
How it used to be
The poetic fire we had
When our pens were chemistry

The dance floor was full
But it was only you and me
Your gentle whisper
How you could set me free
In my mind you were in my arms
Could not resist your sweet charms
Can you still remember

It's not too late
These hearts can beat again
If I can find the words
Girl, just breathe me in
You never know until you try
This could be hello, not goodbye
We could start anew
Make it like before
Your perfect lines
Make me long for more
Until finally then...
These hearts can beat again 

Can you still remember
When you were my island girl
Separated by ocean waves
Still we gave love a whirl

You were the painter's canvas
I was the painter's brush
Every stroke was magic
A masterpiece.. My rush
All the inhibitions fell away
Lover's lyric the music played
Can you remember

It's not too late
These hearts can beat again
If I can find the words
Girl, just breathe me in
You never know until you try
This could be hello, not goodbye
We could start anew
Make it like before
Your perfect lines
Make me long for more
Until finally then...
These hearts can beat again 

So, God I'm begging please
Down on the floor
See me on my knees
Make it like before
When I close my eyes
Bring me to her coast
Melting all my whys
Until she's so close
That she remembers

It's not too late
These hearts can beat again
If I can find the words
Girl, just breathe me in
You never know until you try
This could be hello, not goodbye
We could start anew
Make it like before
Your perfect lines
Make me long for more
Until finally then...
These hearts can beat again

Note: This write is about two poets who used to have such powerful chemistry that it was almost like a romantic dance. But something has happened to that chemistry.. and the longing poet is pulling on remembrance in the hopes of sparking again what once burned bright.

Yes it was.. a couple of these are. I was seeing if anyone would remember. Or was Lyric Man a forgotten memory. We need to kick in a few echo writes if you're still up for that.
