Nite Nite, Love You



I think about you every night
before I fall asleep
some may tell you that isn't right
but promises must keep
nobody says good night to me
it feels like no one cares
if I don't wake up in the morning
how long will I lay there

I wonder things like who will care
to cremate me and say goodbye
apologies for the subject
but someday we all die
it doesn't scare me to know this
what bother's me, I guess
is knowing I may have no one
who will clean up the mess

I wrote a song long time ago
back in the early years
when I explored who I am
and overcame my fears
the links remain to express me
to anyone who cares
the night is the most lonely time
because no one is here
the time nobody shares

So excuse me for telling you
how much I miss the time
of nite nite love you BFF
is it such a crime?
my hope is that you find a smile
in knowing that I care
and still appreciate you now
every time you share

So now I lay me down to sleep
and hope tomorrow smiles
thank you for reading these words
for just a little while
I hope to find someone who will
come right out of the blue
until I do, just now and then
I'll say these words to you
nite nite, sleep tight, love you
nite nite, best friend, love you
just doing what I do
just
nite nite
love you

We're In Love

Not because we have to
but because we want to
just because we want to
that's why we care

not for obligation
but for the sensation
just for the elation
that's why we share

there are no rules to guide the heart
don't let anyone tell you how to love
there is no wrong way and if you're smart
you will embrace what you dream of

not because you have to
but because you want to
just because you want to
that's why you love

not cuz you're supposed to
but because you know it's true
you know just what to do
love love love

there are song that tell the truth
there are songs that set you free
there are songs that inspire love
you are that song to me

not because I have to
but because I want to
just because I want to
I am yours

not because we're falling
but because the calling
love's no longer stalling
it opens doors

there are no rules to guide the heart
don't let anyone tell you how to love
there is no wrong way and if you're smart
you will embrace what you dream of

this is your part
my love

not because we have to
but because we want to
just because we want to
we're in love

there's no obligation
there's only sensation
love is the elation
we dream of

not because we have to
but because we want to
just because we want to
we're in love

la la la la la la
la la la la la la
la la la la la la
we're in love

la la la la la la
la la la
we're in love

la la la la la la
la la la
we're in love

la la la la la la
la la la
we're in love

la la la la la la
la la la
we're in love

Sharing Everything

I want to fall in love again
I do it all the time
with life and love and everything
and even words that rhyme

but I also want to find someone
who falls in love like me
so we can fall in love as one
together through entropy

through eternity
through infinity
sharing everything

completely and
unconditionally
sharing everything

I want to give myself to someone who
knows the intentions at my core
to care for someone who cares for me too
so we need nothing more

through eternity
through infinity
sharing everything

completely and
unconditionally
sharing everything

I am a hopelessly hopeful romantic
a child lost in innocence
searching for someone who understands
the shared experience

through eternity
through infinity
sharing everything

completely and
unconditionally
sharing everything

over and over the song is the same
with every new moment we fall in love again
and when we get tired we sleep in each others arms
only to wake eager to continue living love's charms

through eternity
through infinity
sharing everything

completely and
unconditionally
sharing everything

True Love

I go through these phases
of believing in love
sometimes I am without a doubt
that I shall rise above
the abuses and betrayals
that have plagued my aching heart
and sometimes I am so full of doubt
I don't know where to start

I don't want to be afraid
but I don't want to be betrayed
I don't want to endure anymore cruelty

I don't want to give up now
I will find my way somehow
because I know what true love can do to me

It is the greatest feeling this life can experience
and I believe it is the reason we are here
to give unconditional trust to someone is intense
and yet that is the only way to really care
there is no holding back what we share
if we want true love to become real
there is no holding me back this year
I will live exactly how I feel

I don't want to be afraid
I know I have been betrayed
I don't want to endure anymore cruelty

but I will not give up now
I will find my way somehow
because I know what true love can do to me

so I will sing out long into the night
I am here to share true love's light
and I welcome you to sing along with me
let go of all fear
no doubt can live here
trust your heart and set it free
sing with me

I don't want to be afraid
and I know I've been betrayed
and I don't want to endure anymore cruelty

but I will not give up now
I will find my way somehow
because I know what true love can do to me
I know what true love can do to me
I will let true love do what it can do to me

sing it

I will not give up now
I will find my way somehow
because I know what true love can do to me
I know what true love can do to me
I will let true love do what it can do to me

the one who's right for me

there is an empty space beside me
waiting for someone who wants me
the friend who understands me
the lover who commands me

there is an empty space inside me
waiting for the partner for me
the one who cares about me
who shares everything

and life goes on from day to day
i run and laugh and work and play
and give my wealth and self away
cuz that's what makes me happy

but always there's a missing piece
that leaves this life incomplete
someone to share everything
and that is why i sing

love is my pot of gold
my ultimate goal
is to share everything
with someone who wants me

love is the mountain top
and i will never stop
until i find the one who knows
this is true

the door remains open
as i enjoy each moment
the hope remains a beacon
for anyone to see

as i love the joy of giving
and all the pleasure of living
i will never stop seeking
the one who's right for me

through all the ups and down
i remain a hopeful romantic
the empty space awaits
the one who's right for me

the best choice

when past and present merge into a revelation
there may be no more euphoric sensation
and going forward becomes so much more inviting
when truth opens the door to life it's so exciting
and this is why i keep writing

...
sitting home alone saving some money
finding the internet both sad and funny
hoping to find some friends who understand
why i resist the the success in this land

politics, religion, and economic wealth
are power trips i don't want for myself
distractions from what matters most in life
sharing love with a partner husband or wife

money does not matter in true love
power trips only get in the way
gender does not matter in true love
all divisive games that people play
when they're afraid of trust and love
all i want in life is trust and love
all i want in life is true love
all i want in life is true love

can you still trust unconditionally
as you did when you were born?
i am looking for someone who still can

can you give your heart completely
as you did before it broke?
it is possible if you understand

power does not matter in true love
trying to control just gets in the way
freedom is the essence of true love
trust above all else, come what may
and fear is the enermy to overcome
along with the pain that makes you numb
don't let your heart turn blind deaf and dumb
let true love be your primary drum

you can still trust unconditionally
as you did when you were born
if you let go of the fear and see the pain

as proof that you can give your heart completely
and realize there is no better choice
but to do it all over again
you can start all over again

just let go of all fear
give in to your heart
it only wants to care
it has from the start
accept that the best choice
is to risk it all again
and you will find true love
like rainbows find the rain

just realize there is no better choice
but to do it all over again
and you can start all over again
yes you can start all over again
just do it and start all over again

don't die alone

i've got nobody that i can lean on
nobody to say hello to when i wake
nobody to say goo night to at the end of the day
nobody to talk to when i've got something to say
nobody around for me
nobody around for me

...
are you reaching a point in your life
where you are left alone too long
no family left, and friends have their own
lives and loves to keep them strong

and you just don't fit in anywhere anymore
maybe you never really did
as you start singing the end of your song
there's nobody listening

don't die alone
you can still reach out
and trust someone
in spite of all the doubt

it may seem hard
to still believe in love
but if you do
your heart will rise above

the pain and fear
will quickly melt away
with just one touch
your song will start to play

and suddenly
the loneliness will end
and there will be
your new best friend

when you think you have nothing to offer
when you are feeling down and out
lost your job and family gone
and fear doubles down on doubt

when all you want to do is scream or die
but you don't feel the strength to shout
just extend a helping hand
to know what life's about

don't be alone
you can still reach out
and trust someone
in spite of all the doubt

it may seem hard
to still believe in love
but if you do
your heart will rise above

the pain and fear
will quickly melt away
with just one touch
your song will start to play

and suddenly
the loneliness will end
and there will be
your new best friend

don't die alone
don't give up on yourself
your dreams are not
just books on a shelf

extend your hand
and look in someone's eyes
what you will find
may come as a surprise

the pain and fear
will quickly melt away
with just one touch
your song will start to play

and suddenly
the loneliness will end
and there will be
your new best friend
