Love That Lasts

I’ve never fully fit in with any crowd

Maybe for a time I can fake it for a while

But I could never say all my thoughts out loud

Some things so silly just said to make me smile

 

In my own family I’m the black sheep

My independent mind and rebellious side

Pushes me away with misunderstandings so deep

Nothing is easy and there is no one in which to confide

 

I never thought someone could really love me

It’s something that’s been out of my grasp

It seems you’re the only one who can truly see

Who I really am and that’s why our love will last

The dark might take a hold and I start sinking

 

You watch me fall apart in despair

I know you’re not sure what to do

In different ways you show you care

My darkness in a way also affects you too

 

I never thought someone could really love me

It’s something that’s been out of my grasp

Even in the darkness you are the one can see

Who I really am and work to make our love last

 

You see the broken parts of me and accept

That it’s not all bad and in many ways

It helps me to find the strength to reject

Fitting into a box or the need to belong craze

 

We can be stupid and silly alone

Quote movie lines, stupid “what ifs” and joke about things

Others don’t understand that makes it our safe home

Those times feel like we can conquer whatever life brings

 

I never thought someone could really love me

It’s something that’s been out of my grasp

But you bring the light as you are the one who can see

Who I really am and we have a love that will last

 

There is something magical in your embrace

Any pain, anxiety or aches cannot survive, they go away

My mind gets lost when I’m looking at your face

The rhythm of my heart listens to whatever yours has to say

 

You are my drug, the one thing that makes me high

That is why there are times I need you more

Maybe it’s selfish that I seem to use you to get by

But I promise every part of you my love I adore

 

I never thought someone could really love me

It’s something that’s been out of my grasp

That God you are the one who can really see

Who I really am and I promise I will work to make our love last

I'm turning 40 in April 2017... So much seems to have happened and changed. I guess I am feeling I should have it figured out by 40, but does anyone every really have it all figured out?
