welcome to my heart you said
as you laid your head on my lap
and it was then that i fell.
not that i first fell for you
but that was the moment that i fell ever so deeper into you
it was beyond lust
and way past love
it was then that i began to protect you
care for you
wish that i could kiss you
and suck all the bad stuff
from your mouth
take it on myself
its one thing to love someone
not be able to get enough of them
but when you feel for them
as you would feel for your child
never want evil to have touched the ground they stand on
well that's something different entirely
its whats brought down kingdoms
its whats saved countless lives from the danger
the sheer danger
of being alone
are you saved? a roadside sign begged the question
and my heart answered yes
because my salvation
lies not in a thousand countless gods
or faiths that never give back
my salvation lies
in the eyes of a man
who once laid his head on my lap
and felt so at ease
that his lids were finally able to soften
and this sleepless man began to dream
dream with eyes wide open
about the life he wanted
every little step we take
be it two steps forward
or a hundred steps back
never fall us short of where we want to be
elbow to elbow
my whole life melted away that night
and my fingers in his hair
brushed away every single doubt.
you know who you are.
damn... i love you.
you make me shake
and you make me scream with everything that i am
for a second try
at this chesterfield called life.
