A Whole Hearted Promise in Love

This is my generalization of love. It is not towards any certain person or based on any particular events of past relationships, but this is the kind of love and relationship that I wanted. Things in life do not always go as planned, but this is at least my outlook on the subject. My ideas, my story, my collections on feelings I had felt or want to feel. As John Legend once sang, "You're my end and my beginning, even when I lose, I'm winning. Cause I give you all of me and you give me all of you." - which in love and relationships, is how its supposed to be. As lyrically and poetically as I can put it, here it is. 

Once I thought that love was something I could never do - I never thought that I could feel this much. But this yearning in the deep part of my heart is for you. It’s more than a reaction to your touch; it’s a perfect passion – and I can’t get enough. The way you look, the way you laugh, the way you love with all you have, there aint nothin about you that don’t do somethin for me.

The way you kiss, the way you cry, the way you move when you walk by – that’s somethin that always gets to me.

I used to spend my nights out in a barroom because liquor was the only love that I had ever known. I was tempted cause from an early age I found that I liked drinking, and I never turned it down. But you rescued me from reaching for the bottom and you brought me back from being too far gone.

I may drink too much and play too loud, hang out with their rough and rowdy crowd. I may be a not so good girl, but I can assure you, a damn good woman. And you. You’re just as smooth as Tennessee whiskey, just as sweet as strawberry wine and just as warm as a glass of brandy – and honey, I stay drunk on your love, all the time.

I wanna love like Johnny and June, with a "Ring of Fire" burning with you and I wanna "Walk the Line" til the end of time. I wanna love and love you that much, Cash it all in and give it all up and when you're gone, I wanna go too. " 

There's something about a man in black that makes me wanna buy a Cadillac - roll the top back and roll down to Jackson town. I wanna be there on the stage with you, hear the crowds roar, make them want more and then kick the foot lights out. 

"Love is a burning thing and it makes a fiery ring. We're bound by wild desire and I fell into a ring of fire. The taste of love is sweet, when hearts like ours meet. Boy, I fell for you like a child and the fire went wild. I fell into a burning ring of fire, went down down down and those flames went higher. And it burns burns burns the ring of fire - that ring of fire."

"As sure as night is dark and day is light, I'd keep you on my mind both day and night. And happiness that I've known proves that it's right, because your mine, I Walk the Line."

When there's gonna be no more tears to cry and we only have memories of our lives, we'll remember our love like that. Now, they don't make love or hearts like that anymore, but is that really too much to be asking for? 

Now don’t hang up boy, because you know I called on purpose. Even if I’ve had a few, and hell I’m hurting, there ain't no words that I’ll ever forget, cause in the morning, I’ll still mean everything I said.

You’re gonna run out of cigarettes, and we’re gonna run out of wine. We haven’t even started the good stuff yet, but it’s okay because we’ve got plenty of time. So pull up a comfortable chair and put on those records that always drive me crazy. You look so good in the dim lights that you look like nothing - but mine. Everything I love and everything I want. 

I wanna love you like this ol’ world is gonna stop. Til the very last second, the last tick of that ol’ clock. I’m gonna slow it all down and then take you from zero to ten cause I wanna love you like I’ll never love you again.

I wanna love you like the rain on a tin roof, stronger than a bottle of 110 Proof. I wanna take love to places that love has never been because I wanna love you like I’ll never love you again. And I will fall in love with you all over again.

I’ve looked for love in all the same old places, found the bottom of a bottle always dry so when you poured out your heart, I didn’t think to waste it – because there’s nothing like your love to get me high. In my life I’ve been hammered by some heavy blows that never knocked me off my feet, but all you’ve gotta do is smile at me and down I go. It’s no mystery to me whatsoever, why I surrender. It’s because boy, you’ve got everything.

I love your attitude, all your tattoos, and your every thought. Your smile, your lips, those mesmerizing and beautful eyes. I could sit here til the end of time listing everything that attracts me to you because that list goes on and on and on…

Your dance, your will, your drive - you make me feel alive. The way you talk, the way you tease… By now, I think you see that there’s not one thing that doesn’t do something for me. I’m so into you, you’ve got that something – but what can I do? Everytime you look at me, my heart is jumpin, and it’s always so easy to see.

Don’t worry about any damage done, just let the words roll off your tongue – even if you’re lying. If you really don’t mean it, I don’t care - If you need a little buzz to get you there, then hell, I’m buying. 

Just say you do, for tonight and every night, just say you might. Have a heart, bend the truths, even if you don’t, couldn’t you just mess me up, get in my head. I’ll steal your tee shirt and wreck your bed, all night long like you used to, even if you don’t, couldn’t you just say you do.

Yeah baby, I’m begging you to lead me on, say it feels good to be wrapped up in my arms. I don’t mind a little smoke getting in my eyes, but baby take your hands and take your lies – and lay them on me.

I’m always thinking and doing things that I shouldn’t be. One more drink leads to another and you slide up close to me, tear the tee shirts off each other with your hands all over me. I’ll tell myself I’m NOT in love, but one more time is not enough. One last kiss and then you’re gone, and I’ll be wishing you could stay a little longer.

I know I could never tell you enough, but all I’ll ever need is your crazy love. Even if I never get to see the Northern Lights, or never get to see the Eiffel Tower at night, if all I got is your hand in mine, then that is just more than fine.

So let’s just end this day and everyday together… and stay a little longer.
