I want you to read my name,
In your history books.
I want you to hear my words,
sung all over the world.

And I'll let you in
On my little secret.
Oh I'll let you in
To my little world.

And if you listen close:
You can hear my heart,
You can hear how it beats.

And it beats in time.
Oh it beats in time with:
The tick of the clock,
And the souls of my shoes
As they travel the road,
Oh as I travel my never-ending road.
And I'll let you in

And I want you to read my name,
In your history books.
Oh I want you to hear my words,
sung all over the world.

And I'll let you in
On my little story.
Oh I'll let you in
To my little life.

Come and listen close,
And hear my heart.
Maybe you'll hear it beating
To the sound of my world
And maybe,
Just maybe:
I'll let you in.

I was listening to the best song ever:
"Bones" by Lewis Watson, and I got the melody stuck in my head, when I picked up a pen, I wrote my own song to the tune I found myself humming.

Really intense imagery and great idea. Keep it up :)

"In the end, it's still best to wait for the one we want rather than settle for what's available. It's still best to wait for the one you love rather than to settle for the one who's around. It's still best to wait for the right person, because life's too short to waste on the wrong one."
