A New Light

A New Light

You put your lips on mine, and I held my breath
It’s like we tore a hole in space and time, and I was being sucked into a new world
Then you lay on my chest, silent as the night
Who could have guessed, what was going through our minds

My heart was racing, you couldn’t help but notice
I let out a nervous laugh, and made the dumbest of remarks
But deep down an unknown fear was settling, slowly manifesting itself into a sense of doubt
It was the first time in my life, I had let my guard down!

Now my mind was racing, my forehead was sweating
A reality was dawning, and I couldn’t face it
So I did what I always do, when faced with adversity
I laughed a little, and you picked it up

What was that? It was nothing
Why did you laugh? I just think it’s funny
What’s funny? It’s funny how I…
And with those final words, my final words…

I’m a selfish person, self-centered and probably an a**hole
I would never put anyone before me, ‘cos I believe no one is trustworthy
But in true sense I’m just a coward, a hero with useless powers
‘cos when I think I’m saving myself, I don’t realize the people I hurt instead

But here we are, alone again
Ever since I met you, my life has never been the same
You tore down my walls, and challenged my beliefs
You took my hand, and showed me how to live

This is the moment, there’s no turning back
We might not see the bottom, but let’s take that leap of faith
In your sweet embrace, there’s no place I’d rather be
I can’t hold it in anymore, you are my everything

I Love you
