Late nights.

Or super early morning.

Anyway, I really should be sleeping, and I really should have done my Christian Doctrine reading earlier, and I really should still be in Gotcha, and I really shouldn't have eaten flavor blasted goldfish and coco pebbles 10 minutes ago, and I really...don't mind.

I just wrote a new song.
I am on such a high right now.

Read on, and see why I am just beyond happy as of right now.

Waiting for You

I'm out here sitting on your doorsteps
Waiting for you, waiting for you
And everyday I just can't stop
Thinking of you, thinking of you
No way, no how
I always told myself don't fall so easily
You should know by now
What comes after the wall, is just worse than what was before.

But when your smile matches my heartbeat
As it beats wildly out of my chest
There's a feeling I haven't had to deal with just yet
And I know it's there inside your heart, you just don't know what to do
Take your time. Figure it out. And I'll stay here
Waiting for you

You can only fix a heart
So many times, so many times
Cause the band-aids start to fall off
When you lose all hope, lose your mind
And if this, is real
I'm going to need more than a bit of conversation
I need room to heal
A promise not to break it again
Cause I don't know how much more my heart can stand

But when your smile matches my heartbeat
As it beats wildly out of my chest
There's a feeling I haven't had to deal with just yet
And I know it's there inside your heart, you just don't know what to do
Take your time. Figure it out. And I'll stay here
Waiting for you

And I'm waiting, waiting, waiting for you
If you're feeling, feeling, feeling it too
I'll take the risk, hand you my heart
And I know that you'll do your part

And then your smile matches my heartbeat
As it beats wildly, out of my chest



SOOOO GOOOD. I feel awesome right now. Like this has been settling in my stomach for a while and I just managed to put it out in words I feel good about. It was worth staying up this late. It was worth the scratching and scribbling it took. And maybe, just maybe, I think it's the best song I've written so far.

Wow.
This is good.
