For Emma

[ 0 ] November 24, 2008

Its Not Much But Its All I Have - My HeartThis one doesn’t have a date, but the approximate is July 22nd, 2004. Real old! That was about two weeks into our relationship, who would of thought, nearly 5 years later we would be here?

For Emma

My last thought before i go to sleep
My thoughts while i sleep
In my dreams
Until i wake up
Thinking of you.

Always on my mind
Always in my heart
Always missing you
From the time my day starts.

Controlling my mind
My heart
My day
My life.

Hoping to catch a glimpse of you for a second
Hoping to spend time with you for a minute
Hoping to see you all week
Hoping to be with you for a month
Hoping we will last a year
Wanting you in my life… always.

Right Here (Departed) Lyrics by Brandy

[ 0 ] November 23, 2008

When I first saw Brandy had a new CD out I laughed. She’s well, a little outdated. I was shocked when I found out she had this song. The lyrics are beautiful!

Right Here (Departed)

When you feel
Your heart’s guarded
And you see
The break started
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me

Darkchild
You’ll be right
Here with me
Oh-oh
You’ll be right
Here with me

When you’re life
Is going too fast
Off the train tracks
I can slow it down
Just when you think
You bout to turn back
Scared you might crash
I’ll be your ground

Chorus:
When you feel
Your heart’s guarded
And you see
The break started
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me
When your tears
Have dried from cryin’
And the world
Has turned to silent
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me

I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right
Here with me
I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right
Here with me

When you’re so trapped
And there’s just no key
And you can’t breathe
I’ll breathe for you
The fire’s got you down
On both knees
And the walls
Are closing
In but
I’ll be
Breakin’ through

And when you feel alone
Imma be ya home
When others come and go
Ya know I got you

Chorus:
When you feel
Your heart’s guarded
And you see
The break started
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me
When your tears
Have dried from cryin’
And the world
Has turned to silent
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me

I will be there
Right be side
You every step
You take
I will be
Your strength
Your shelter
Shield you
From the rain

When you feel

Chorus (2x):
When you feel
Your heart’s guarded
And you see
The break started
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me
When your tears
Have dried from cryin’
And the world
Has turned to silent
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me

I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right
Here with me
I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right
Here with me
I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right
Here with me
I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right
Here with me
Yeah

Don’t Take Your Love Away Lyrics by Avant

[ 0 ] November 22, 2008

I found this song after I wrote Don’t Take Your Love Away. The song is great of course (its from Avant) and the lyrics are nice.

Don’t Take Your Love Away by Avant

[Verse 1]
After the hopin and prayin and the wishin
Girl you’re right here in my face
I’ve never been the one to bite my tongue
But I have not one word to say
I’m mesmerized by your sexy eyes
And your soft and lovely skin
I want this fiasco to end
So baby we can start all over again

[Bridge]
Listen I wanna be able
I wanna be able to love you, oh I
I wanna be able
And let me be the one to please you, oh I
As sure as the sun shines all over the earth
You’re one of God’s most precious works
See I’m a man and we make mistakes
But please don’t take your love away, oh I

[Chorus]
Don’t take your love away
Baby don’t take your love away from me
I need you girl
Don’t take your love away
Don’t take your love away
Don’t take your love away
Baby don’t take your love away from me
I need you
Don’t take your love away baby

[Verse 2]
Mama said don’t put your hands in the cookie jar
She said, “Son, have control”
She said everything thats that’s
sweet ain’t good for you, no
And everything that glitters ain’t gold
And now that you’re gone I realize
I’ve lost my soul
And I don’t wanna pass the torch
Baby can you give me one more chance

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
See girl I know that I hurt you so
With all those girls that were in my world
Stacy and Kim, damn all of them
Girl I wanna give you everything I can
I know you’re tired of my games,
Tired of my lies
Baby this time I promise it’ll be alright
No longer will you be lead astray
Baby listen to the words I say

Quick Fix

[ 0 ] November 21, 2008

Quick Fix
Dated November 18th, 2008

Writing is my release
And lately I can write pages
Inspired again to put it all down
To put down all the pain in my heart

Maybe just so someone will listen
Not with their ears,
But with their eyes.

My blood flows like ink
Down to the paper
Bleeding lines of words
Trying to stop the flow.

But I’m scared that this time
It will take more than just a band aid.

Every Everytime Everything

Every Everytime Everything
Dated November 18th, 2008

Everything you do is right
Everything I do is wrong

Everything you feel is real
Everything I feel is fake

Everything I’ve had has been lost
Everything has turned out all wrong

Every scar has reopened
Every cut is deep
Everything hurts

Every move I make
Every step I take
Everytime, it gets me lost.

Everytime I try to speak
Every word I say
Everytime it doesn’t come out right

Everything you do is right
And everything i do is wrong

Don’t Take Your Love Away

[ 0 ] November 19, 2008

Don’t Take Your Love Away
November 19th, 2008

I don’t think I’ve ever felt this way
Because I’ve never been in this position
Never felt this way
So I don’t know how it feels to lose it.

It’s more than love
It’s a life
If I lose you, it’s like losing life.
And I know if you leave
It will take me with you.
Losing Myself.

Once you close that door
I know that it can’t reopen
It just won’t.
No matter how many keys I try
How hard I knock
It’s closed forever.

I can’t say it better than:
“Don’t take your love away
Because I love you
I want you
I need you
So let’s just work it out”

Poem by Matthew Henrickson with Lyrics from Did You Wrong by Pleasure P. (Lyrics are in quotes)

Did You Wrong Lyrics

[ 0 ] November 19, 2008

This song is perfect, make sure to download it if you haven’t heard it yet.

Did You Wrong Lyrics by Pleasure P

You know, I want you all to just sit back and think for a second.
You know what I mean?
Now, there’s a lot of haters out there hating on peoples relationships and stuff.
Don’t nobody wanna see you happy.
They always try to take your joy, bring you down.
But you gotta be the one to sit by your mate and say “I’m gonna be with you no matter what”
You know what I’m saying? Fuck it, I did wrong, you did wrong too.
You know what I’m saying?
But we gotta put up with each others shit.
And the easiest thing to do is leave, you dig?
Anyway, check this out…

I don’t want to lose this relationship
So we gotta stay strong, don’t wanna move on
I know you’re sick and tired of the fussing and the fighting, and the cussing
Well, I love you … and you love me too

[Chorus:]
I did you wrong, you did me wrong
I take you back, you take me back
I did you wrong girl, you did me wrong girl
I’ll take you back, I’ll take you back
No matter what you do
No matter what you say
No matter how far you go
Don’t take your love away
Because I love you
And girl, I want you
And girl, I need you
So let’s just work it out

I ain’t tryna waste your time
And, I ain’t tryna waste my time
There ain’t no need to waste no time
’cause we done put in too much time
I ain’t tryna waste your time
I ain’t tryna waste my time
Ain’t no need to waste no time
’cause we done put in too much time

When you’re in a relationship
The easiest thing for you to do
Is to leave
You gotta stick it out, and work it out
And stick it out, and work it out
And stick it out
‘Cause at the end of the day…

[Chorus]

I love you baby, I need you in my life.
You know what I’m saying?
I’m sick and tired of the arguing and all that good stuff
I mean, I’m pleading on this track because I really really love you
And, I really want us to work out
You know? I want to marry you baby.
You know? I want you to be in my life for the rest of my life
You know what I’m saying?
Anyway, I’m just talking a whole lot of jibberjabber
But uhm me without you is like the moon without the sun
And the sun without the moon.
Pleasure P without Pretty Ricky.
You know what I’m saying?
A blunt with no dro
Ecstasy with no body
You get what I’m saying baby?
You dig? Aight.. you dig
Holla at you boy
I love you

My Soul Is Tired

[ 8 ] November 18, 2008

My Soul Is Tired
My Soul Is Tired

My soul is tired
Tired of the words never said
And the ones said but never heard.

My soul is tired
Tired of the wet tears
And the ones never shed.

My soul is tired
Tired of the truth
And the lies
Tired of life
And tired of death.

My soul is tired
Tired of looking into the past
Tired of what I see in the past
Tired of not being past… the past.

My soul is tired
Tired of sleeping but never sleeping
Tired of the dreams that wake me up
And tired of the fights that eat away at me each day

My soul is tired
Tired of being tired.
But I’m afraid if my soul sleeps
It won’t ever wake up.

Why Talk About Me… When You Won’t Even Talk To Me?

[ 1 ] November 17, 2008

Why Talk About Me…

When You Won’t Even Talk To Me?

If you want to discard 10 years+ of friendship over anything stupid I did to you when I was 16, stupid and immature… but was the best friend you could ask for 99% of the time. Walk away from it, and don’t look back. Fine.

I’ve cried over it, but I’m done now.

The worst part? You won’t ever see this. And probably, won’t care to.

“I’m done looking into the past just to find you.”

My Truth; Your Lies

[ 0 ] November 14, 2008

“My Truth; Your Lies”
Friday

My truth for you
Has always been a lie
My stories have been just that,
A story.
A tale, a tale
And my life, just a laugh.

You never believe the honesty
You never believe the truth
You never believe the story
You never believe my heart.

At some point you stopped listening
Listening to what is real
To my story
To what is true.

You’ve made up your mind
The beginning, The lie
And you’ve already decided the outcome
Before I even opened my mouth.

My words have become meaningless
Why speak?

By Matthew Henrickson

I don’t have a date on this, just calling it a friday. It could be any of the fridays previously from this poem to the last, you pick. You don’t have to believe me…
