You are my air; you are the oxygen I breathe. You are the sails to my boat; you are the piece of my heart I've been missing. How could I ever let you go? How could I survive without you?

Day light no longer shines,

Everything is always just a blank page.

The moon has become my only friend,

And the pencil I need has been broken and thrown away.

Every time I look at your face,

It's like I'm looking at the thing I've been missing.

That piece of my heart that no one has found,

Has finally been put in its rightful place.

Your eyes are like the pools of water in a clearwater creek,

Shining so brightly as if the moon were reflecting off of them.

How your lips move is like a beautiful melody,

The lyrics to the song I've been trying to write.

But your head never turns to look at me,

They're always staring deeper into another.

I feel like I've been missing from the picture,

The picture that I dream of every night.

A touch from you would heal these wounds that bleed.

A kiss from you would wash away all the nightmares and bad wishes.

I would be forever yours,

No matter the conditions you asked.

I would stand by you with all my heart,

And even when death takes us will I keep holding your hand.

But my day dreams have always just been a fairytale.

The days that I wish were brighter,

The page that I wish was filled,

The moon that I wish would be gone forever,

And the pencil that I wish were in my hand,

Will never become.

Without your eyes on me I will never become.

How could I ever survive without you?

I'm burning with ache of your hands.

I'm burning with the ache of your lips.

I'm burning with the love that can't be let free.

I'm burning with the pain that stays inside of me.

Suddenly your arms are around me,

Constricting until I can barely breathe.

And no matter how long its been you haven't let go,

Because you feel the way I feel.

Turning around I see your face.

Hands on mine I fall.

Your arms still around me,

You fall with me.

And when we hit the ground,

You are still there,

Holding onto me as if you would never let go.

Your lips so smooth and soft,

I wish to touch them with mine.

And as if you read my mind,

You kiss me.

Everything I have ever felt breaks free in only one kiss.

I no longer carry this burden,

And so I wonder.

How could I have ever survived without you?
