GIVING ALL MY LOVE TO ME

Spent so much time searching for love
And most often found it
In my mind
Romantic love
Needed to be around it
But now I find
A different sound
Has entered my soul
I don’t need love’s battleground
To try and make me whole

We’re convinced from childhood
With how it’s supposed to be
Being single is not good
Must be a couple, naturally
I used to buy it heart and soul
But I don’t any more,
I’m on a journey to myself
Searching for my core

CHORUS
Not saying I won’t love again
Who knows what will be
Love may find me in the end
Perhaps then we will see
I only say for now my friend
I’m giving all my love to me

They say all our choices, are made from love or fear,
What about the voices saying I’m afraid when love’s not near?

Love may make the world go round
A cure for all affliction
Nonetheless romantic love
Can sure be an addiction
Seems that I thought all along,
Alone was not enough,
Now’s the time for me to show,
I’m made of stronger stuff,

CHORUS

Not saying I won’t love again
Who knows what will be
Love may find me in the end
Perhaps then we will see
I only say for now my friend
I’m giving all my love to me

NEVER DISAPPOINTED

I’m never disappointed, if I just expect the worst,
No, I’m never disappointed, if I just expect the worst,
Ya’ll can race me to the bottom,
But you know I’m sure to get there first,

No one said life would be easy,
At least no one said that to me,
No one said life would be easy,
At least no one said that to me,
Sometimes I don’t know whether,
It’s better to be, or not to be,

“Your cup’s have filled” some people say,
“Tomorrow’s just another day”,
Well pardon my ingratitude,
But keep your goddamned platitudes,

And take your words of wisdom,
Stick’em where the sun don’t shine,
Ya’ll can take your words of wisdom,
Stick’em where the sun don’t shine,
They say misery loves company,
But this misery’s all mine!
(Go on, get your own!)

Yeah, I’m never disappointed, if I just expect the worst,
No I’m never disappointed, if I just expect the worst,
Ya’ll can race me to the bottom,
But you know I’m sure to get there first!

THE IDEA OF ME

You only loved the idea of me,
What I represent,
Escapist fantasy,
Never any intent,
To follow through, that’s not what you do,
I loved you one hundred percent,
You only loved the idea of me,
I don’t know if it started out that way,
If you saw my heart and just wanted to play,
I know your life makes you want to break away,
But that still doesn’t make it okay,
To only love the idea of me,
All that talk of forever baby,
Kept me hanging around your door,
But all that waiting around for forever baby,
Made it hard to wait around any more,
You only loved the idea of me,
I thought you came from up above,
You’re the one I’d been dreaming of,
But it seems when push finally came to shove,
You just didn’t understand love,
You just loved the idea of me,
All that talk of forever baby,
Kept me hanging around your door,
But all that waiting around for forever baby,
Made it hard to wait around any more,
You only loved the idea of me,
You only loved the idea of me,
What I represent,
Escapist fantasy,
Never any intent,
To follow through, that’s not what you do,
I loved you one hundred percent,
But you just loved the idea of me

HOME IS NOT A PLACE

The heart has a space left bare for healing,
With warmth revealing,
Where love shines through,
Home is not a place, it’s a feeling,
A feeling that I get when I’m with you,

From time to time I feel a little homesick,
That’s a heart’s trick,
Playing memories from before,
When I need acceptance and belonging,
I’ve a longing, to head straight to your door,

Bridge:

I used to think that home was where I came from
Laid my roots down,
And where I got my start,
But then I found that I had lifted anchor,
And now I thank her,
For she’s home to my heart….

Home is where we feel warm and protected,
Won’t be rejected,
When we go off the rails,
The place where we can take off our armour,
A safe harbour,
And the wind beneath our sails,

I used to think that home was where I came from
Laid my roots down,
And where I got my start,
But then I found that I had lifted anchor,
And now I thank her,
For she’s home to my heart….

The heart has a space left bare for healing,
With warmth revealing,
Where love shines through,
Home is not a place, it’s a feeling,
A feeling that I get when I’m with you.
