Wake Up My Love

Because I love you,

You quickly become an everlasting priority,

however, that doesn't mean

you automatically have all authority.

You see, giving all of me to you,

is beyond just that, are you aware of the fact

that you must give me all of you right back?

Because I love you,

I fall victim to a destructive path of guilt,

then my unathletic ass attempts to climb that 400 foot wall you've built.

"YOU NEVER DO THIS, YOU NEVER DO THAT...

PLUS, I CLEANED LAST NIGHT!"

and from me, you'll get a congratulations, followed with a simple shoulder pat.

Sweetheart, our love is not a competitive race,

and yet you love to think so.

But if that's the case...your heart will need a repairing brace!

Because I love you,

my heart will forever grow

and you baby...well, you reap what you sow.

My heart yearns for health and affection,

which is visibly shown on my sunkissed complexion!

A man will come along one day,

and show you what you've missed

AGAIN, AGAIN, AND AGAIN, my love you'll replay, there is no twist.

My forgiving, and beaten down words,

Because I love you, will pierce your ears

and my new, healthy found love, will bring you to tears...
