(Verse One)

My baby's a star, you know
She swims in a sea of suns
Giggles at my balmy puns
That's why I love her
Fits like a glove, her

She shimmers for the eventide
Always lets my crazies slide
That's why I love her
Yeah, that's why I love ...

Her ... eyes ...
I dive deep - dive deep
Her ... eyes ...
My dreams keep - soft sleep

She's the whisper in my breath

So sublime

She's the shine within my eyes
She the eyes that pierce my soul
The soul that rends my Heaven
So sublime
She's so sublime

(Verse Two)

My baby's a star, you know
In her bright, commands the sky
She lets my many faults get by
That's why I love her
Set no one above her

My baby's a star, you know
Warms the heavens with her smile
Makes each moment worth my while
That's why I love her
Yeah, that's why I love ...

Spring is here - scents the air You've come from somewhere Moving in next to my home Your aura blooms bright n' warm I'm Already thinkin' here's a new friend I'm Already thinkin' here's a new friend                         Nice to meet a looker Show you all the best spots here I'll  see my world through your eyes Be free without need for a guise It feels like I've met my lifetime match It feels like I've met my lifetime match We sit under a tree           Your words sing harmoniously  Time flies too quickly Walking, talking, feeling tipsy Even from here seems I feel your touch Even from here seems I feel your touch Joking, laughing hours spent Licking ice cream - just content Folks stare - it doesn't mater Instant us just add water      You must believe in love at first sight You must believe in love at first sight Your image is ingrained in my mind A daydreaming guy am I Lost in you and me entwined I wonder can you read my thoughts As we lie under the sky Our hands touch and my face lights up Then you smile sweeter than syrup  We pick weeds you call them flowers I am the questions you are the answers I now know we are meant to be together  It feels like I've met my lifelong match I am sure I have met my lifelong match *************************************************************** A Re-Write Of "We're Going To Be Friends"Lyrics By The White Stripes (Jack White)  The Original Song is about a boy and girl still in school.

Real love, don't act it,
Its cold,please hot it,
All yours, attack it,
Continue, don't stop it...

Hard,like a brick,
Tock,when I tick,

Your Love So Sweet

You and I like stars we beam,
we’re Earth and Moon entwined forever.
You’re in every lucid dream,
igniting passion and desire.

I see rainbows all the time;
see them perched on tranquil blue skies.
Summer days wear sunny smiles,
and we’re like sweet grapes on a vine.

Chorus:
There were times when life brought me down,
I didn’t know if I could ever be found.
There you were… you breathed me back to life.
Now I’m a rose in paradise.

I’m gonna bloom with your heart beat…
beating in rhythm with mine.
I wanna sip on love so sweet;
you’re much sweeter than wine.

With our love we’re stars that shine,
for all eternity together.
Yes, I’m yours and you are mine,
we surrender only to each other.

Chorus:
There were times when life brought me down,
I didn’t know if I could ever be found.
But there you were… you breathed me back to life.
Now I’m a rose in paradise.

I’m gonna bloom with your heart beat…
beating in rhythm with mine.
I wanna sip on love so sweet;
you’re much sweeter than wine.

I’m gonna bloom with your heart beat…
beating in rhythm with mine.
I wanna sip on love so sweet;
you’re much sweeter than wine.

I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I’d better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
all I through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there's been heartache and pain 
I don't know if I can face it again 
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again 
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel 
I want to feel what love is

In a silent beckoning From the hearts loving call Where a simple day of beauty falls A white rose opens So pure so free And wings of love In you In me Take flight beyond To drift so free Each delicate petal Of silken love In wind blown dream Rise above Where painted gardens In rainbow mist Flouish beneath A loving kiss

Details | Lyric |
So, here we are again, my dear
Our wondering hearts are trembling with fear
Of the step we took in the pale moonlight
Now, beholding each other in the bright sunlight.

Remember our plan? We'll take it slow
We'll allow our hearts and love to grow
Without the pressure of passion released
Too soon - but now, where do we go?

Is it time for us now to say good bye -
Do we gather ourselves and give it a try;
Are we done, my love, and now we start
On a future that tears our love apart?

Oh, help me now to understand 
How we lost control of our senses and
That now, our passion being fulfilled
We ponder if our love is stilled.

Yes, here we are again, sweet dear,
Two wondering hearts now filled with fear
For the step we took while under the moon
Was it too soon, my love - too soon?

YOU AND ONLY YOU Strewn pebbles after a tide ballet for a pause So am I when still you are not by my side but God is good that even those pebbles when slowly gathered-- spell a good use... Pieces of me I consider blues and black Gladly, you constellate: creating a mosaic no longer you settled as a friend that consoles but you built something even rusts can't corrode --------------------------------------------------------------------- Vous et nul autre, Vous et nul autre, You and only you... From smile of sunrise to weeping break of night my love, you and only you I long to have and hold I want our eyes spark then lock on same shine I want your arms' warmth wrap around mine Vous et nul autre, Vous et nul autre, You and only you... Sensing strongly tonic trembles 'neath my fingertips I wonder what God was thinking when He created you for meeting you plays a life spring in crown of trees. To commitments said with kisses drawing life's game, Vous et nul autre, Vous et nul autre, You and only you... You and only you, I want to walk with forevermore. To your eyes, your nose and then to your lips, each kiss a speech of my love and thanks for thee, my Darling this I promise to do through eternity. ___________________________________________________ ***vous et nul autre (French) - You and nobody else but I reword it to --- You and only you. ***"I wonder what God was thinking when He created you" is a line from the song WHEN GOD MADE YOU by Natalie Grant and NEW SONG*** Music to my ears poetry contest - Poetry Contest Sponsor Name - Silent One Olive ELoisa Guillermo 9:58 pm, July 31, 2015

RED ROSE RULES ~anacreontic verse~ Guard by blue skies on green meadows the lover's roll, a dash of love cause cheeks to blush a classic style, a charming act from nature's art-- to tease her mind, to please her heart. Her smile so bright, he want this right: the scents so pure among all blooms his red rose rules freed from fear shy lips reveal thoughts long hidden from her muse. Eyes wide open hands to her face casting same spell, orbs magnetize on feelings so bliss. They don't want to miss, they start to kiss only the breeze, the birds, the trees witness this tryst. _____________________________ 8:14 pm; January 06, 2015

I watched him in a dusky street walking all alone ,

As he reached closer to me the mystery has been gone .

I knew those eyes that once shone bright , like colours of a latin marigold ...

Those eyes became part of the night without a glint of glow .

Those choco  eyes have lost their luster ,they've turned vacant and cold ,

Those eyes of molten  memories that  gazed into my own .

I watched him in a dusky  street walking all alone ,

As he reached closer to me , the mystery has been gone .

I knew those eyes that once shone bright ,Now glassy like the moonlit snow ...

Those eyes became part of the night , so far away from home. 

So far away from open arms that kept waiting for him

Far from a lonesome feeling residing deep within .

I watched him in a dusky street walking all alone ,

As he reached closer to me , the mystery has been gone .

I knew those eyes that once shone bright , like colours of a latin marigold...

Those eyes became part of the night without a tint of glow .

OUR LOVE IS RIGHT Now that I've found you, I'll not let you go Life was going nowhere, with you it just flows Times we spend heals my empty-bleeding heart I'll never allow a day, for you to ever depart Darling, your love place me on my fire Hearing you speak, I don't get tired Since I've known you, I get wired Tell me when can I hold you tight Tell me when can I hug your might Tell me when can I kiss your light? Tell me, darling, our love is right... Feelings of missing you doesn't color blue Instead it brushed hues of paradise view It pleasures me, I hymn our united theme I, a songbird, lured ears to stop and hear Each time you close those bright eyes I am struck to behold with guise You must know I don't disguise Tell me when can I hold you tight Tell me when can I hug your might Tell me when can I kiss your light? Tell me, darling, our love is right... Gazing at you, I see a vista of life winsome smile melting all my strife Hearing you, my heart leaps so tall Like Autumn leaves, am ready to fall Barriers broken as hearts and lips talk To ocean of motions we take each walk True love flowered, said by our own folks Tell me when can I hold you tight Tell me when can I hug your might Tell me when can I kiss your light? Tell me, darling, our love is right.. _____________________________________________________________________ 5:31pm, December 25, 2015

I just had a moment 
When the window was open
I smelled the fresh air
It was a feeling I couldn’t bare

I was sitting on my bed
With my hands to my head
I began to cry 
You probably want to know why

The tears that role down my face 
The feeling of pain is not the case
The effects of my tears is Joy
What is the cause of this story?

Have you ever felt the moment when everything is right?
When your muscles aren’t tight
When you have the greatest friends
And the perfectly cool winds

When the perfects guy sweeps you off your feet
It’s like the perfect feeling of spring heat
No to cold and not to hot
The perfect moment is what I just caught

Wrap around 	me
just so

string yourself through the needle of time
chase the froth of foam lipping the tide
let my nascent heart tap 	with the tip of your toe
samba, slow dance, make romance 

Oh wrap yourself 	around me
just so

slide down the capo 	across the strings
through this opening in cosmic signs
birth the waiting wonder of my love	mi corazon
limb to limb	entranced, your head inclines

Wrap yourself around me
just so
just so

pluck me from the moving melody   of rhyme
dip with me as the moonlight strides
let my petals curl  with the click of heel I love you so	 
samba, slow dance, make romance 

Wrap around 	me
just so

Lyrics are timed to music 

Out there - a distant shore I’ve seen your face before It’s De’ja`vu with thoughts of you Then feelings of a loss, come tomorrow Sometime - another place I’ve seen - your smiling face It’s De’ja'vu of thoughts I knew Love is meant to be, not the sorrow I searched, beyond the stars I looked beneath the moon I know JUST KNOW - without a DOUBT My heart - will show me soon Oh way out there - a distant land That’s where - my love began Now De’ja'vu fills thoughts anew So happy again - come tomorrow So far, beyond that star We’ll kiss far beneath the moon I know, without a DOUBT My heart will show me where soon I’m sure, with wings I’ll soar With love, I knew before I’ll spread my wings I’ll learn to fly And never ever again - be broken hearted Oh we can fly with wings on high Then never ever again, we’ll be parted
Synopsis of total De’ja’vu play that these lyrics were composed for: The lives of two lovers was torn apart way back in the 14th century when she was banished. The interference could have caused a Pattern shift of Destiny in the Loom of Time. Could a certain couple be the same star crossed lovers that have searched for each other through many lifetimes over the centuries? A wise mystical character from the bygone era is a keen observer and blames himself for not intervening. He also wonders that since the Earth is the cradle of humanity, would humans have progressed past the cradle in this day and age. Foot note: Ron and I love musical theater. After seeing a disappointing play, he rose to my challenge in regard to the comment he made that he could have written better. The result was De’ja’vu, a Romantic Musical. I wrote the lyrics in collaboration with him, but due to the enormous staging costs the music was never written and we abandoned the project. The lyrics for this piece have been tweaked to ‘La mer’, also known as ‘Beyond the Sea’ and one of my Dad’s favorite songs. (Wish he was here, he would have composed the music) Sorry folks, if and when we find suitable music to the lyrics of the Grand Finale, I’ll post it

What more can I do to endear me to you?
How can I endlessly draw your gaze?
How might I incline your heart to be mine,
To reside beside mine, always?

You might have guessed that you are my Muse—
The source of all my inspirations.
I’m doing my best to respond to your clues
To permanently win your affections.

Each song that I sing, each verse that I rhyme,
Are meant to attract your attentions.
Each bouquet that I bring, endless time after time, 
Are just my endearing enduring expressions.      

My soul’s compass always points towards you,
Pulled by more than just mere attraction.
My life is in focus, and my sky’s brightest blue
When I am searching in your direction.

What more can I do to endear me to you?
How can I cement your gaze?
What must I refine to call your heart mine,
That our paths may entwine, always.

This Beautiful

close your eyes now and dream of lands
we'll build our future upon those sands
open your ears now and let me whisper
let me tell you how we'll get there

hold my hand now and feel so safe
we'll be flying high above everyone else
rest your head now on my shoulder
even when we stop this feeling's not over

until the horizons of your heartbeat
to the earth beneath your feet
beyond the warmth of your breathe
I'll never let go, of this beautiful

open your heart now and let love inside
see what i see looking into your eyes
wrap your arms around and hold on tight
that feeling of you too much to embrace

open your eyes now awake to your sunrise
you are my day and my sweet night
close your eyes now and where they met
we will grow old underneath your sunset

until the horizons of your heartbeat
to the earth beneath your feet
beyond the warmth of your breathe
I'll never let go, of this beautiful

no matter where we end
we'll have found the kingdom
that place inside your heart
that place we've dreamed of...

until the horizons of your heartbeat
to the earth beneath your feet
beyond the warmth of your breathe
I'll never let go, of this beautiful

I'm haunted by the words you wrote 
Tell me what you want from me 
Don't tell me what I want to hear 
Tell me how you really feel 

I could be everything for you and more 
I'm telling you now I want more 
I'm telling you I want to be with you 
I want all of you... 
Do you want to be with me? 
Honestly? 

I know you're confused 
I'm confused too, confused by you 
It's okay to be scared 
I'm here for you, I'll hold your hand 
This is a risk I'm willing to take 
But the decision is yours to make
 
You write of walking a straight line 
I'm here to tell you that now's the time 
Now's the time to face your fears 
Now's the time and I'm right here 
Now's the time for us to shine 
Come on baby, let's chase those butterflies

listen here...i breathe again
listen here, my only friend
listen to the words i speak
even if they make you weak

life has come too far it seems
to break apart your precious dreams
and though you lie down wide awake
a single breath is all it takes

though deep and long returns the sigh
youre the apple of my eye
though i may be far away
kiss my lips..youll be okay.

this life is straining all of us
and listen now...it is a must
i love you more than anything
so rest youre head and dream the dreams

of when i wasnt always gone
and all you had were letters from
a soul-dier with poetic words
to give to you so theyll be heard

                         9 KISSES IN THE LIBRARY

        First kiss meandered through Sci Fi by the purple 
        wall. The tender second kiss arrived around the bend.
        mumbling 3rd and 4th excuses as she frog jumped 
        twin matrons chatting with their dead and absent friends.
        Sweet and slow-- the next three left her breathless-- 
        Zinged and knocked her senseless to her bony knees.
        She braced herself--for just two more--oh, please--
        At 9pm she's startled by a subtle shoulder tap,
        Bodice ripper pages shuddered with a final schoolgirl snap.

Imagine me as a book covered with dust,
A soul whose warmth for years remained untouched

Letters on every page were ill-defined, unclear
The essence was hidden in an ambiguous fear

Uninterested I was in the societal rigmarole,
Me and my outer self were at opposite poles

Quite hesitant I was to turn to the next page
As I knew it would amount only to stormy rage
Quite concerned I was for my future pages and me,
The so-called bright world appeared shadowy

And in this dusky weather, suddenly the air felt unusual
This didn’t happen in years, the matter truly seemed crucial

I bizarrely felt the warmth of cool welcoming zephyr
My pages drifted, smiled and glinted like a pearl

My dull existence got transfigured into a life full-of-beans
Personified I was into a woman of worth, a woman of means

And now after owning this bag full of happiness,
I started reading the letters carved on me,

This time they were decipherable and defined,
They managed to unite me, my heart and my mind.

I looked around, in quest of the soul who revived me
Who passed by me and set my tangled soul free

Seeing him was out of question, quite hazy he appeared to me,
I could only fantasize him as a cozy breeze over the sea

Now, this breeze could be felt only when you are around me
You…  only you and nothing beyond
You…  the only one to make my passion profound
You… in your absence too you could be felt around
You … the only one in whom I am found!

My eyes rapaciously closing from the rampant onslaught of sleep,
All the while, aromatic thoughts of her tingling my senses grappling for more time within my psyche to feel her breath upon my face.
Open, close, open, please stay open, slipping away, a final physically powerful determinant thought of her as I drift away, oh how beauty dances about her.   

Morning arrives with a thunderous sentiment of arousal; throughout the oblivious night she somehow cradled my emotions.
There it is, her outlying presence, my thoughts reach her, tantalizingly embracing her from afar.
In a moment of pure rapture I feel her compassion, it devours my being with carnal desire.
Elation lingers over me, through me, shudders my mere existence with verve from some inestimable force.

I steal thoughts of her throughout the whole of the day, mind dwelling in a vacuum, heart massive with pulsation, soul ever engaging bouts with heaven.
Graciously my day over, with detachment lastly concluding, emotions now keen with fervor and fortitude.
I allow myself to revel in her exquisiteness, reach for her, take her in, and strip her of the malicious day that may have sought her out.
Embracing her, energy invigorated, ardor consuming, I take the splendor that I behold, reach deep into her essence and release my absolute love.

   This star shot across the sky, not a wee bit shy,
   as I breathed a sigh on moonlit ground.
   It didn't pause to ask me "Why?"
   When I questioned was it heaven bound.
   It just passed as if to say,
   "Nothing gets in my way.
    I'm lit up and that's O.K.,
    as I dance on past the moon."

   You walk through Central Park, making sparks,
   breaking hearts with every view.
   My dreams ride through the dark,
   somewhere down Park Avenue.
   I'll offer you the ride.
   I no longer wish to hide.
   I want you by my side.
   And then we'll dance off to the moon.

   All along that Milky Way, come what may,
   your eyes array and hold their sight.
   As I search for what to say, to not betray,
   this priceless "Starry Night."
   I'd cut off my one good ear,
   for those three words I wish to hear.
   I just want your love my dear,
   as we dance off to the moon.

   I'm all alone.  Without a stone,
   to call my own, on foreign land.
   I call you on the phone, to hear you moan,
   in a tone, I thought was banned.
   Our universe commands
   that orbits never land.
   There are no one-night stands. 
   So let's dance off to the moon.

   Let's catch that star, in a ragtop car,
   and go so far, out of our way.
   And sing each bar, on my guitar,
   with hearts ajar, enough for us to say.
   "I'll love you for all-time.
    Let's kiss and pantomime.
    No time for one more rhyme.
    Let's dance to the moon."

Details | Lyric |
You are a mild hesitation, generating bold question.
In your bed, under cover, you become a distracted lover.
In your heart of emotion, say -- am I your slightest notion?
A simple walk with you endangers my penciled, perfect view.

With fists, I attempt holding all that uncertainty flies
before looking in your eyes of such vague, scattered tries.
Am I your any place … does my touch leave any trace?
Gray skies, sad sighs and sensual thrills vary heat of will.
My desire to see truth yearn, stretches to see you turn.

Gentle lavender-laced, fancy dreams hang on low rafters.
They offer ease of capture - now winds may lay them blown
cause your cupid air dancers twirl aloof in passion’s cologne.
Do gray skies, sad sighs and sensual thrills tarry now to kill?

In your heart of emotion, do you stir honesty’s notion?
A simple walk with you endangers my penciled, perfect view.
Am I your any place ….  do you see precious on my face?  
You are a mild hesitation, generating bold question … 
                        and, baby, I’m a slooow burn, baby, I’m … just a slooow burn.

Ripples shadow-sway across waves, casting gray over days.
Vague gauze designs play tag inside multi-mazed blinds.
Feeling comes and goes, slides and grows, I’m tossed .......... 
                                                           you twist, but -------
                                                                   ..…  mostly I’m a slooow burn.

Where the Pomegranates Grow

Outside the city where the pomegranates grow,
Adonis I met strolling through an orchard row.
Paradise it was being with my enamored beau,
who adorned me with wildflowers from head to toe.

Youthful and carefree, we loved unabashedly,
for the gods had blessed us so abundantly.
Unbreakable was our bond and passionately,
we promised to love each other eternally.

Outside the city where the pomegranates grow,
we’d glitter like fireflies in a mystical love tableau.
Igniting cool nights with our warm golden glow,
we were twinkling stars in love forevermore.

I've seen this movie before,
and I know how it ends
First we start off slow,
then become Best Friends
That's when the Love Story begins
We have ourselves a True Romance
which brings us skin to skin
And the way we are now
is The Way We Were then
Deja vu
Double Indemnity
We created the Perfect Storm,
our love has no Misery
You're my African Queen
and I'm your Lion King
We're on a Streetcar Named Desire
that feels like a Ring of Fire
Key Largo
Kate & Leopold
This love was Too Hot to Handle,
but we couldn't let it go
We found a way to hold on tight
because we were both Spellbound
Now it's A Wonderful Life,
our love is such a Phenomenon
Boomerang
The Baker Boys
Steel Magnolias
Sophie's Choice
These are just a few
of the movies I see
whenever I'm loving you,
and you're loving me
A Star is Born
A Place in the Sun
The Best Years of Our Lives
Strawberry Blonde
These are just a few
of the many movie scenes
that always let me know
what our love truly means
Braveheart
Moonstruck
Pillow Talk
Notorious
These are just a few
of the movies I see,
once I fell in love with you,
and you fell in love with me
Love Jones
Cleopatra
Wuthering Heights
It Happened One Night
These are just a few
of the many movie scenes
I always see you
when I'm looking at the screen
Casablanca
Gone with the Wind
I've seen this movie before,
and I love how it ends

As lilies are arrayed,
So might an angel
Bestowed upon me
May delightfully be.
That her wings will
Be softer than silk
In my calloused and
Undeserving hands.
That her beauty may
Bloom as a field of
Sweetly scented flowers.
As a rose that wilts not, 
So shall the gentleness
Of her loving embrace
Be forever felt upon
My beating chest.
As the fluffiness of
White hydrangeas,
Pedestaled, enthroned
In a palace of gold,
So shall my queen—
Elegant, wondrous—
Be loved.

Right now you are an image I try to focus in my head, but I just keep remembering all phone things we have said. So, I’m just a wondering where I’m being led, is this romantic lightness or something to dread? It all lies before us now, a clean slate of time. There are no injuries, no scars, no hurts of yours or mine. So, as your face again fades and I think of plans we’ve made, I give hope for your vagueness to date gather shape defined. What of this heart of mine, should I put it on trial? Should I allow pain in so I might have the smile? I guess where I have been and where I have still to go will somehow trip land within all things love that I don’t know … Don’t know if I wanna go where I’m not sure I’m going. Don’t know if the unknown is something I should be knowing. Don’t know what I’m looking for when I answer my own door. I’ve twirled too many bruises on fool's dance floors before.

From your two transparent blue oceans Where the sky has sprinkled Its two handfuls of dream Wind is wild like school children From that laughter into my dark corners Can you please give me with your palm Just a little bit of the granules of sugar From those smiling sparkling swirling eyes Where the blue of sea mingle with the white of sky Where from morning till night Ever blooming stories sprinkle delight From the sweet whispers of the starry night Just a little bit of sugar for my twilight Can you give me Or else what for this petalled unfolding every day Upon the sand that the sun has almost forgotten On the shoulder where the hair lays caress In a dream in midair still Weaves tales of wild hare On the moons where clouds still grow and swell What for this everyday bread and butter Without just a little bit of sugar From you For my hue Just a slice of window I seek before my eye lashes From your green and orange game Not just an onlooker A little bit of sugar too _____________________________________________________________ For the poetry contest: Just a Little Bit of Sugar Sponsored by: Debbie Guzzie

Kiss me love. 
Kiss me baby, I don't give a shit about what they say.
I don't give a damn what they think and am not ready to educate them on how to think about you.
Baby when they are talking just kiss me, when they feel like we should not be together just kiss me. If u are to scared I will.
When they say your boyfriend is dull, tell them his better than their ex, even their new one is not a chance. 
Kiss me baby, kiss me let them know we make love, kiss me let them know we are couple. 
 On a sunny day if u walking by and then it raining all of a sudden but u forgot to pick a cover, think of me I will shield u at the moment. 
But when their words are getting much just tell me.
If u can't handle it just call me. 
I can break jaws I don't give a damn, I will fight for u like no man does. 
I will make u pretty like no has, ur ex will regret leaving u but then it too late. 
Kiss me, just kiss me, no don't look, don't look at them they are haters if u still can still see them just kiss me. 
Let do it open, let show them how much I love you.
It won't work they say, let kiss in public so they will know we kiss in public, perhaps when I feel the softness of ur lips touching mine, I will go to another world for sure.

Give me another chance

When I think about,
my long search for love...
I think back and say,
what was I thinking of

All of my life,
you've been there all along...
I never gave you a chance,
but, you always stayed so strong


Chorus
If I knew then, all that I know right now
I never would have caused you the pain
or, I would have made up for it somehow
but, I didn't know, of all the love you had
all the things you left unsaid
I never would have made...you so sad!


Now, I know you,
and now I know the truth,
the love you've had for me,
you've kept hidden since our youth

So please forgive me,
for all the mistakes I've made...
I played the game of love,
while making your heart break

Chorus
If I knew then, all that I know right now
I never would have caused you the pain
or, I would have made up for it somehow
but, I didn't know, of all the love you had
all the things you left unsaid
I never would have made...you so... sad!

Bridge
So now my love, 
won't you give me another chance
to make it all up to you, 
let's start a new romance...
I promise you...
I'll never cause you pain,
never leave you in the rain
If only you would give...
me another chance!

repeat bridge
fade to zero
