Dreaming Awake

January 31, 2014
The day I met you made me feel like I was dreaming awake
I tried so hard to find the right words to say.
After meeting you I wasn’t the same,
I’ve felt like I was living every day in the pouring rain.

Just like the rainbow after rain
No matter how you struggle, something good will always come from the pain.
At times I feel whatever I say seems to come out wrong
I find it easier to express through writing my songs.

You made me question if you noticed me that day.
Would you ever tell me if I took your breath away?
There’s no one else I’d rather ever be
If you looked closely you would see, I will always be just simply me.

At times I look in the mirror and imperfect is all I tend to see,
But believing in my worth is what sets me free.
I wouldn’t have it any other way,
Imperfectly perfect is exactly me.

I hope you won’t forget my crazy personality,
Always striving for my own originality
I might not be perfect in everyone’s eyes
But would you know where true beauty lies?

I might be the kind of girl to make you look twice,
Sweet enough and sometimes just too nice
No matter what I will always stay strong,
Even when everything is going wrong

I’m unique like my name,
I don’t copy other girls to look the same.
I try to make everything worthwhile,
The kind of girl who would do anything just to see you smile.

I won’t break since I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve.
You made it possible again for me to believe
No matter how things sometimes may seem
There’s nothing keeping me from pursuing my dream
