So much time we spent,
Trying to live this phrase,
"I Love You."
Chaos fills the air,
Hearts filled with wounds and tears,
Trying to say, "I Love You."
I try, I try, I fail again.
Why do I always let my ego win?
Just save face, we play pretend
That we know how to say, "I Love You."
But then the Sun comes out
Every once in a while,
It says, "Sit back, put on a smile,
Let me show you how to do 'I Love You.'"
"Give, but don't expect.
Understand your heart needs its rest.
Breathe for a long, long time.
Give yourself time to unwind.
Be simple like a flower,
Trusting like a babe.
The world is ever chasing,
Don't get stuck on that page.
You can live the life you desire,
Let your heart become like a child's.
Simple, never needing much,
Always responsive to Mother Nature's Touch.
Keep staying close to the God within.
Never shutting down, letting everything come in.
Open up yourself, Express.
Trust the Universe to take care of the rest."
Sounds like I need to get out of my own way,
Get back in touch with my Inner Child.
Make a painting, lower your rent.
Find a skirt, Bohemian Print.
Wear your insides, out loud with pride.
Learn to enjoy life, you only get one ride.
Truth is, Nine years with Prince Charming
doesn't really exist.
You must grow if you want to persist
Into a life that becomes worthwhile.
Relationships are a lot of work.
Even nine years has still got me trying.
Life is perfect, simple work
Is just something I'm not buying.
Because all of beauty lies outside of perfection.
I'm not even interested in that direction.
Especially not in this physical extraction
Of how we do, "I Love You."
Nine years of fights, that we made right.
Broken hearts, turned to tender nights.
Unplanned children our biggest win,
Dreams we chased, no more pretend.
Every setback, comes with laughs.
We've learned to dance around the traps.
Our hearts still open, to our unperfect love.
Lets stay together, till we go above.
