The Things I Do For You

Anxiety
A bunch of minds
Stuck on a question like glue
But all I can think about right now is you

Stress
Floods through the room
I have more to do because of you during the days
Here I go, I’m gonna count the ways…

1.
Wake up in the morning with a smile upon my face
2.
Wash the sleep from my eyes – there must be no trace
3.
Brush my teeth and comb my hair so that they both shine
4.
Apply mascara to my lashes so that you’ll notice when you’re eyes meet mine
5.
Pick out the most beautiful items of clothes I have to wear
6.
Maybe…just maybe…I’ll redo my hair
7.
Finally it’s time for school – I NEED to pass you by
8.
When you look at me in the halls, I flip my hair and say “hi!”
9.
Run to class when you turn around and go find my best friend
10.
Talk about you constantly until the day comes to an end

Now
I’m back at home
And I’m replaying what happened today
I’m already planning for tomorrow; what should I say?

Stress
Floods back in
And things are stating to feel grey
And then I think of your smile…and suddenly…I’m okay.
