Favorite Quote:
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

I have so much to say
Like if you're looking for the right direction
Then darling look for me.
My love is no trip for the weekend
I'm here to stay for all the seasons
But the words won't come out
And time keeps slipping by.

I've got the words of nation
But I keep biting my tongue
Afraid I'll say something wrong.
I want the words to come out
But time keeps slipping by.

I've got a heart as loud as lions
But I've spent a lifetime in silence
Why let my voice be tamed?
I want to sing, I want to shout
I want to scream "I love you" 'til the words dry out.
But I keep biting my tongue
And time keeps slipping by.

This piece is about how strongly I feel toward my boyfriend but I can never find the strength to express my feelings while he's been pouring his heart out to me.
