lets discuss us
without having to fight or cuss
or being seduced by lust
because that causes such a fuss
offering emotional rust
dissentergrating the trust
because respect is no longer a must
before the ashes turn to dust
no longer on the back of the bus
but not unified on Earth's crust
& that causes such disgust
but they wish to keep that on the hush
because they are so very unjust
gone in the wind like a gust
just to keep you & i from us....

Need

Always being with you
Needing to be with you
Makes me do anything for you
I wonder what that makes me

I wonder why I need you so
Is it for me
Or a validation of love
Am I scared of failure

I dont have the answer
The only thing I know
Is my great need of you
To always be with you

Maybe I need you
More than you need me
I know I will always be here
When you need me.

"Us"

Through this pain we'll carry on...
too many times, the feeling's gone...
do we cry or do we laugh...
this is the end of our tradition...

Through this pain we'll carry on...
too many times, the feeling's gone...
do we cry or do we laugh...
this is the end of our existence...

We've been to hell,
and travelled back,
what do we have to show for it?
I don't know how,
I don't know when,
but I will have you back again,

doesn't matter what we've done,
we'll go back to when we first met,
I don't know how,
I don't know when,
but I will have you back again,

Through this pain we'll carry on...
too many times, the feeling's gone...
do we cry or do we laugh...
this is the end of our tradition...

Through this pain we'll carry on...
too many times, the feeling's gone...
do we cry or do we laugh...
this is the end of our existence...

What if we just went away?
Left the problems to start again,
would it work or are we blind?
Is the sign to our destruction clear?

Sometimes I'm on top of the world,
others, I'm not getting up,
rock bottom and I don't know how,
I can handle this distraction...

Through this pain we'll carry on...
too many times, the feeling's gone...
do we cry or do we laugh...
this is the end of our tradition...

Through this pain we'll carry on...
too many times, the feeling's gone...
do we cry or do we laugh...
this is the end of our existence...

Through this pain we'll carry on...
too many times, the feeling's gone...
Through this pain we'll carry on...
Through this pain we'll carry on...
Through this pain we'll carry on...

At the edge of worlds

It was never supposed to happen.
It was never meant to come
to that crashing nexus in time
where everything was so sprawled
and scattered and exploded
and spilling out of our arms
as we desperately tried to contain it
and carry it with grace,
and so human, and alive
and at the same time so very
crystalline in its perfection,
its clarity,
ten thousand scattered muddy pixels
(wretched slippery parcels)
but a sharp, crisp picture
on the whole.
It was never meant to come to that.
But here we are, that crossroads
of life, and not life, and nothing in between
but a dirty corner between two roads
with two one-way signs leading off
to two very different cities,
and nobody here but you and I
and everything about "us"
draped around us.
We were always "us,"
but that was before
and this is a one-way street
and the light's about to turn.
There'll be plenty of time later
to look back down that one-way lane
and say with wizened authority
that it was right or wrong
to take the path we did,
but right now,
here and now
there's you and I
and "us"
and two different roads
with a right and a wrong
(or two wrongs? who'd know)
and never a map. I rev the engine.
The moment has passed.
It's time to go.

                I need and want you.


I need and want you to be with me through out my life.

I just can't tell you why. I don't have the answer.

I Need and want you to be with me through out my life.
Something in my soul tells me your the one for me.

I want and need you to be with me through out my life.
I will love you no matter what happens,
regardless of what my mother tells me to believe in.

I need and want you to be with me through out my life.
I will love you till the end.

I want and need you to be with me through out my life.
I will always love you because I believe in us.

I want and need you to be with me through out my life.
I belive you are the one for me.
