I thought I needed a more interesting life,
So I sought out danger and I found you;
But you were an overdose of the medicine I needed —
You threatened my sanity.
Every time you got closer to me,
I felt like melting on the floor
Because you were too intense for me to resist.
When your lips were on my neck, feeling the pulse underneath,
I felt the adrenaline running through my veins,
Screaming to be unleashed — a passion so strong that
It could exterminate me.
There’s something wild
Inside of each of us,
Some kind of demon
Caged in a cell of skin,
And it tries to get free,
To get the worst of us
Show its face and rip us open,
Making our soul bleed.
I tell you about my dreams
And you mock me, mock them,
Tell me I’m a mere believer
And that the world is full of them;
But listen closely, hear me out,
I’m the legend you’ll hear about;
I’m a doer, I’m The Man,
I’m the one you pretend to understand.
You call my dreams foolish,
I think they might be,
But it’s the people like me
Who change the world that you see.
Break the chain of this world, fly far away
If you wish to live another day.
Dare to speak up your mind,
Pin words on display
If you don’t choose the easy way.
Live the life that you want
Not the one that you may
If you don’t want to fade away.
Beneath the skin,
Look for It
Because there’s a sparkle
You shouldn’t miss
That would enlighten
Look for the glitter,
Look for the light,
Look for the whole Universe you hold inside
The chest of your soul.
You’re the creation of God,
So as you go on Earth
Stop looking outside for those
Who might get you out of misery –
Start believing in the god-like power
You were gifted at birth;
That power is love.
Look at me with open eyes,
Unrestrained, wild, loving, and free;
Look at me like there’s no tomorrow,
As the future is uncertain and scary.
Look at me like you live in the present,
Aware that once the moment passes it never comes back;
Look at me like I’m a note,
Reminding you that you only live once.
