Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.

I was a mess when we kinda’ met—
I was dating your best friend and wasn't...happy
I was a couple

I thought I had to settle for less-
and then we started talking
And I started falling

And I thought I was asleep
No one’s ever made me feel this way
I thought I was sleeping
But I was dreaming wide awake

You made me see-
I deserve what I want
And you told me--
I deserve the world, the galaxy
We’d talk on the phone until 3 a.m.
Until one of us fell asleep
We made wishes and talked about the future
We’d share secrets no one else knows
It’s as easy as breathing, being with you
You have an unbreakable hold-
I couldn't let you go.
I guess you could say we complete each other

When we’re apart, a part of me is missing
And when you’re near,
a weight’s been lifted
I didn’t know existed

When you smile,
I forget my name and my surroundings
You're incredible, amazing, always so charming...

I am thankful and so lucky
A deep friendship turned
into something so beautiful, so true
That you fought to have me in your life
Even when I ran from you

You’re like my own guardian angel
Made just for me from up above
Even when I am broken, you restore me, fix my broken heart
I am so blessed to be so in love

Before you, my life was a moonless night
Dark with dim points of light leading to nothing
But you came and made everything okay again
You’re the light, the sun, the stars, my everything

I love you cause’ you interrupt me
When you’ve got something to say
Cause’ your eyes light up when you see me
And you hold me close, never let me break away

I love you because you express yourself
You always say what’s on your mind
You’re never afraid to show me how you feel
You treat me like I’m a princess all the time

I love you cause’ you make me laugh like a 5-year-old
You can make me smile instantly
And cause’ when you’re close to me, you’re never close enough
And you’re smooth-but it comes naturally

I love you cause’ you kiss me gently
And when you tell me you love me, the world disappears

Cause’ you say someone annoys you but you’re still there
You’re the friend they need

You listen when I speak
You make my knees go weak
And I know we’re gonna’ make it
Cause’ all I need in this world is you and me

I’d rather spend one lifetime with you
Than an eternity without you
Because no one’s made me feel what I feel for you
I just can’t be without you

You’re my angel, my first and last thoughts of the day
You’re my sunshine in the dark, my golden ticket, my prize
You’re my smile, my laugh, the stars in my sky
Everything’s bearable with you in my life

With one glance, you know what’s on my mind
You know everything about me-I know we’ll stay together
I wanna spend every second trying to make you as happy as you make me
And, as long as you’re with me, everything will be okay
Cause’ you’re my now,
you’re my forever

I write a lot of breakup songs, or songs of struggle or hardships...or overcoming them. But this piece is a passionate, romantic one. I hope you like it:)

That was beautifull, you had me in tears at its close. You are so gifted. Don't ever stop writing, or doing what you love. You are amazing!

NGU. Never give up.

This is really good, and I've read some of your other pieces of work and I think they are great! I'm completely speechless. Also, on your song never under estimate a girl, as a guy i say that is true, lots of us are always putting you girls down, and we need to stop doing it
