I Want Everything

Updated on July 25, 2012

What if I sang you a song
And bared my soul to you
Is that what it would take
For you to lose your cool?

What if I was on a stage
And said I would die for you
Would you show me your heart
Or would I be playing the fool?

I know you want love
But you’d rather pretend
You’re saving something
For someday
But I want everything
Today

I have to act like I’m not impressed
You know that’s the game
I’m ready to show you how I feel
But first I need to know your name

What if I walked right up
And didn’t give you a line
Would you still reject it
Or would you think it was a sign?

I know you want love
But you’d rather pretend
You walked right on by
But your eyes don’t lie

You’re saving something
But I want everything
You’re saving something
But I want everything
I want everything
Everything

      @Nellieanna - I'm glad you're staying busy and I never take it personally if I don't get a visit... everybody is wrapped up in their own world; I am very lax on visiting others hubs myself

      @Kulsum... thank you. It's a simple thing in my mind but I'm trying to unravel the mystery of breaking through the walls of someone you want...

      Not to worry. -- You do have to earn a living!

      I've been very busy for almost two months,- with a collaborative series on here. So I've been a bit lax on visiting all my favorites. Hugs.

      Hi Nellieanna - How have you been? I think I owe you a comment on some of my poems but I am barely having time to write them lately. Work has been a bear and I mean that literally. Ugh... but the pay is good so can't complain too much. And yeah it's from the heart in the sense that that's how I honestly feel.
