Is This Crazy?

by Pretty Fire

I’ve appraoched you so carefully
But still you stir up things inside of me
Like when you offered me chocolate
I can’t forget it, even a few months later
Woah I must it slowly
No don’t know if you know me
But I must admit, I’m willing to let you try

Is this crazy, cause you’re taken and I know him too?
I had a dream once that you left him
Is it coming true?
But right now I’m pretty messed up
What she did to me was pretty fucked up but somehow
I still love her the same
Is something wrong with my brain?
This confusion and pain mixed with envy and blame
Will it all be the same?
Or could someone like you treat me better
Better than her
Or will I just never forget

I know I’ll only get one chance to do this cause that’s the rule
We work together plus a false friendship just isn’t cool
You send me hearts and so I think I’ve got a chance with you
But right now I’m not ready so can we just play it cool?

Right now I just need a friend
Right now I just need a friend
Someone who I can depend on

Finally Free

Take a deep look inside
and cry out
what are you thinking?
is there somethin you’re feelin?
What’s in your soul lady?
let’s find out!
What are you dreaming?
Is there something you’re needing?

Why won’t you let out
what’s been eating your insides?
You already know
Just let it start to flow
Lyin won’t take you that far
Cause you already know who you are
We don’t have to hide anymore
We can take it slow

As fears bubble up from under
Rising you and your beauty from slumber
Lost pieces of your past
Comin’ back so fast
Holdin’ tight onto the mast
But now at last we’re waking up
And we finally see
That you and me were meant to be FREE
You and me

Free
You and me are free
You and me are free
You and me are free
You and me are free

Something

Something in me is moving now
Like a light that won’t go to bed
Are you trying to reach me somehow?
Are you trying to get in my head?
When I felt your chest against mine
And your fingers wrapped around my spine
I felt something I shouldn’t
Startin to feel I couldn’t say
No to you, even if I wanted to

So is this something, or is this nothing
Is this something to you?

This could be the start of something real
So I’ll tell you what I feel
I want you pretty badly but right now I need time to heal
Oh in you I see an endless wave of sunlight
But will it burn, or warm me up just right
Oh it gets me high when we touch, I don’t wanna rush it got you in my sights but I’m movin slow
Think I wanna try for your love, I’m not really sure
Just what it is I’m waitin’ for

So is this something or is this nothing
Is this something to you?

Deep Blue

Time is an ocean
I wanna swim in your waves
And when I’m in your eyes
I get swept away

Deep blue, deep blue, deep blue

I see time in your eyes
Our future floatin
You pull me, hypnotized
Closer to your ocean

Deep blue, deep blue, deep blue

The Rush

When your fingers graze my skin
That’s when I feel the rush the most
I can hardly say a thing
Whenever you hold me close
And your voice is floating through the air
Like it’s some kind of ghost
Light abounds the sound surrounds me
Now I know it’s true

Our bright and turbulent timelines intertwine
LIke a lifeline on the horizon
And when your body is lying next to mine
I know everything’s gonna be fine

Many ways I’ve tried to tell you I have no defense from you
When your eyes arrive on mine, I don’t know what to do
Feel myself just drift away into the aura’s changing hue
Light abounds the sound surrounds me now I know it’s true

Our bright and turbulent timelines intertwine
Like a lifeline on the horizon
And when your body is lying close to mine
I know everything’s gonna be fine
