Favorite Quote:
There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion.
- Edgar Allan Poe


My knees are shaking,
I’m certain you can hear my beating heart
Screaming over the sound of your voice
As you say,
“May I have this dance?”

I get those familiar chills when you
Reach for my shaking hand.
And I stare at the floor as we
Proceed to the center of the room.
Drawing so much attention as we start to move.

I start gasping for air,
I forget how to breathe
As your hand finds my hip.
The moment you say my name
Bringing me back to reality.

Sing me a song,
I don’t mind if it’s out of key.
Only that you’re
Right here beside me.
Sing me a song,
And I’ll be yours forever.
Just keep singing for me, baby.

You give me butterflies
Every time you smile.
Those haunting shadows from my past
Fade with every tentative glance.
Through the dark,
I see your light.

Look out over the crashing waves
At our broadening horizon.
Take my outstretched hand,
We’ll make the jump together.
I put so much faith in you, baby.

Sing me a song,
I don’t mind if it’s out of key.
Only that you’re
Right here beside me.
Sing me a song,
And I’ll be yours forever.
Just keep singing for me, baby.

Just keep singing for me, baby.

So I wrote this song for my current boyfriend. It's kindof cheesy but I love it because it helped me to show him exactly how I felt when I couldn't get the words out.
