getting better

wondering if you could be thinking of me too
feeling so stupid for having such strong feelings
and then knowing you cant see
what ive been seeing
given you too many chances
so many chances

thoughts keep putting a feeling my heart
makes me crazy in the head
cant believe i keep saying
all the things ive said
been trying to figure out what this is
what this is

so here i will wait
not going to go to you again
yea if we are gonna ever be
then you will have to come to me
forget the consequences
of us being together
dont miss this
no dont miss this
cause im just gonna
keep getting better

we’ve been
always playing it safe
never coloring outside the lines
do what everyone expects
be what others want to see
playing pretend
all that to be happy
so “happy”

yea you think
i’ll keep calling forever
always be a tomorrow
taken me for granted
the gurl next door
been there knocking
yea me always knocking

this kind of love
can make you think
anything is possible
until ya realize
what ya thought was
impossible
that i would ever
stop calling
no im not calling
anymore

not going to run next door to you again
yea if we are gonna ever be
then you will have to come to me
ya had your chance
for us to be together
you’re gonna miss this
miss this
and im just gonna
keep getting better

love again*

i remember day dreamin
in third grade
about where i would be someday

first time, i gave my my heart
to lil brown eyed girl
reaching for stars
she wanted to sing and play guitar

i was holding her in the dark
keeping her from the spotlight
she had to go take a leap of faith
left me here all alone to wait

in no rush
had all the time in the world
never thought
i would be where i am
never thought of
life without love

now here i am
out on my own
making way, everyday
tryin to become someone
so when she comes back
she will see
she never should of left me
left us, left love

first time i gave my heart
a little brown eyed girl reaching for stars
there i was still standing in the dark
she had her dreams
i was happy just holding her hand

that man

baby, slow down and stop
take a deep breath
tell it from your heart
close your eyes and talk
that’s the only place to start
don’t let it end
sit me down, look me in the eye
don’t yell it – tell it like a friend
help me understand
tell me cuz i want to be that man

that man in your dreams
who makes you smile in your sleep
who when you were 8 you wanted to marry
when a kiss on the cheek meant “for keeps”
that innocence of love
that man you dream of
that man i can’t see
please describe him to me
stop and take my hand
i can be that man

i know i’ve caused fear
yea there is no doubt
there have been a lot of tears
i know you want out
you think things can’t change
there is a different route
i want to go there, be that man
baby, take my hand
help me understand
show me how to be that man

that man in your dreams
who makes you smile in your sleep
who when you were 8 you wanted to marry
when a kiss on the cheek meant “for keeps”
that innocence of love
that man you dream of
that man i can’t see
please describe him to me
stop and take my hand
i can be that man

when i look in your eyes i know
that is a love that can only grow
and when i felt your hands i knew
i was meant to be touched by you
take my hand now
help me understand
i want to be your man
