Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be


New Relationships

The Brain Is A Ticking Time Bomb

We were in a good place
Now I’m staring at this empty space
Wondering what to do

You said to slow things down
But whenever you’re not around
Doubt takes over me

Everything we’ve had
Friendship that should last
I don’t want to lose it

Time cannot measure
What we’ve got together
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been

Do I make you laugh?
Forget about your past?
Can you see your life without me?

I’m trying hard here
Slowing down for you, but in fear
Fear of losing us

You’re pulling back from me
Bunker’s locked, you took the key
If I knock, please let me in

Remember every conversation,
It felt right without hesitation
Let me into your heart

I know you’re afraid
We have lost our way
But we can find another path

Take a slower pace
Love is not a race
Yet here I am competing

I’m standing still this time
I can’t make you change your mind
But I do hope that I cross it

I am wonderful
You are vulnerable
Let’s lean on eachother

This is worth the wait
Stop questioning fate
Let’s cast our worries aside

Stop your overthinking
The brain’s a bomb that’s ticking
My heart will be the casualty

Trust in God. Trust in us
Trust the warmth of my touch
Trust the smile I give you

One step at a time
Because I’m losing my mind
At the thought of losing you

Hours and hours of conversation
Questions answered without hesitation
Smiling so hard our cheeks are in pain
My new favorite song’s the sound of your name

Learning about you, new things each day
Refreshing and honest – you don’t shy away
Challenging me with all the right words
With just one smile you calm all my nerves

I am completely vulnerable
A naked feeling, while I’m fully clothed
These feelings we have are terrifying
Afraid of heights, but here we are flying

The men in my past have always lied –
To get in my pants, to get in my life
Said things they thought I wanted to hear
Took pieces of me and then disappeared

You call me gorgeous and say I’m sexy
For the first time, there’s no questioning –
What you say is what I believe
You’ve become someone important to me

I melt inside when I see your face
The sound of your voice, a familiar place
I’m giving in, my hearts on my sleeve;
An unexpected surprise – a find I hope you keep
