Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be




My sheets still smell like him

That’s why I lay with you

And every time you bring us up

I don’t want you to

You want me to be the one

To make all your dreams come true

But I don’t even know myself

So how the hell can you?

I was always the one

Wanting ‘meant to be’

I don’t know what I want

And it keeps finding me

They’ve been everything I wanted

Everything I’ve dreamed

Then they tell me I’m the one

And I close down completely

So here you are like him

Falling in love with me

You’re absolutely perfect

Saying all the right things

And here I am again

Pushing love away

I don’t want to let you down

I wish that you could stay

But I’m just not ready

I now fear commitment

And everything I used to want

Is everything I resent.

One Step At A Time

If you can win his time
You can win his heart.

All The Little Things

Good morning texts
Goodnight kisses
Sunday morning breakfast
“Thinking of you” messages

Thursday night spaghetti
Friday night pizza and movies
Laughter and playfulness
Trust and honesty

The gym after work
Cuddling on the couch
All the little things
That matter to her most

She didn’t ask for much
She didn’t need fancy dinners
She only wanted a man
Who wanted to be with her

A man who would make plans
Just to give her a kiss
Someone who looked forward to
Any time he could get

She didn’t ask for much
But she knows her worth
And any man to call her his
Knows what she deserves.

Your Turn

Let’s play a game called, “Let’s not play”
All you gotta do is say what you mean –
mean what you say
Because real and genuine
it doesn’t exist now ‘a days
So I’m calling “Bullshit” as I walk away.

Show And Tell

I’ll tell you if you want to know
I’ll show you if you want to see
I’d wait for you if you asked me to
I’d love you if you let me

I’ll answer if you need one
I’ll take you if you want to go
I’d make it happen if you needed it to
I’d try to move on if you told me to do so

I’ll apologize even though you’re at fault
I’ll take the full blame for it too
I’ll beg and plead just to end the silence
I’d do whatever it took just to see you

We could make this work if you wanted
We could be us if ‘us’ sounds good to you
We could laugh and be really happy together
We could, we can and we should too

So, I’d tell you if you wanted to know
I’d show you if you wanted to see
I’ll wait for you if you ask me to
I’ll love you if you let me.
