We're all just looking for attention, to be discovered overnight. We're all frustrated by the popular ones that claim the limelight before they fall to pieces. So many of us are stuck under the radar--what makes me different? You decide!

Love, a sunny sky with a chance of hurricanes on the horizon
Love, in its true form a lighthouse from the dark waves rising
Love, stronger than heroin, causing greater desperation
Love, stronger than any chains or costs or implications
Love, not the twisted and misconstrued, nor fantasies of the mind
Love, enduring, the pass-the-poison-without-you-I-die kind
Love, you can see their soul while looking into their eyes
Love, gladly bleeds on a cross and pays the ultimate price
And also--
Love, greater than direst fear, for nothing can shake me when you are here.
