The Walls I've Built

The walls I've built
used to be sturdy and strong
I built them to be that way
they kept out everything that was wrong
The walls I've built
are becoming old and worn
full of cracks that have begun to spiderweb
I'm beginning to feel weak and torn
These walls I've built
I thought they'd be everlasting
and never let me down
now they're filling up with everything
and I feel like I might drown
These walls I've built
are busting at every seam
maybe if I tear them down
I'll be okay enough to dream

I feel lost inside of myself
I'm not even sure which direction to search
I don't even know if it matters
I don't even know if I care
Where did that spark go
Did it follow my ambitions
into the darkness
Down into the hollow hole
I find so comforting these days
Sometimes I think I see her
twisting and writhing in self doubt
I can't seem to find a hand to lend
A simple hand . . . 
Mine feel so weak these days

Weeping Willow

Oh, willow tree
Do you weep for sorrow
Do you weep for me
Do you weep for the tomorrows
that you may never get to see
Who do you weep for
little willow tree
Are your bending branches too weak
for all your tiny leaves

Tiny Dweller

I'll be your tiny dweller
living in the hollow 
of your heart
I'll make believe 
I'm the only one
that's lived there
from the start
I'll fill in all the cracks
and smooth it out like clay
and then you'll see
no one else but me
has ever loved you
this way

I Am Here

I am finally here
and it feels so good
to have you near me
it feels so good
 to have you see me
to be seen 
by your dark warm eyes
I am here
where you can touch me
how I've longed to be touched
by the soft hands that know me
the hands that know me well
I am here
to feel you 
to know you
to love you 
to love you 
to love you

My heart beats
with each breath of you
oh baby,
look what I let you do
to me
I want to melt into you
and become a part of your bones
I want to hollow out your heart
and make it my home
I'll swim through your veins
like a fish out at sea 
and no fisherman's net
will ever catch me

Time keeps on passing
when you’re not looking
Even the crowded city streets
seem to be provoking
All the city lights
and on the oceans shore
come tiny waves of flickers
that keep us wanting more
