Cigars and Pixie Sticks

Don’t stretch my love too far, we just started
the idea of me and you leaves scars, my future is brokenhearted
we go together like cigars and pixie sticks
life has thrown us into the mix
something about us doesn’t add up
I took 50 shots for you and hit 60 bricks
there’s no settling when you fight for a friend
but there’s always going to be love for you in the end
I would of fallen in love with you in another life
you would of been my muse, my mistress and my wife
we may never be together
but that’s not to say we weren’t meant for each other
we are challenging to say the least
but in the midst of all our chaos, you bring me peace
when I have all my riches, it’s with you I want to feast
so save room in your heart for me, would you please

we’re too different, we wouldn’t be compatible
I’ve heard every possible reason out of you
we go together like cigars and pixie sticks
something doesn’t stir you well, we don’t mix
we’re strangers doing the strangest things
I recklessly let you in, chaos is what we bring

We’ve earned our rankings among the greatest
Hall of fame contenders in a game we haven’t played yet
but the fans keep cheering as we continue to slay it
we know what we are, so there’s no reason to say it
even when the dust settles, things aren’t as clear as they should be
despite our differences, the question is where and what would we be
if things were easy, but the epitome of us is the lack of simplicity
we are filled with frivolity, but your value is something I take seriously
chemistry is at our core, even when we try to forget
take it back to when we first met
first impressions carry little weight now
though I couldn’t let go of mine if I even knew how
you were exotic, intoxicating, almost erotic
and I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time
we could be a catalyst for some of the best times
if we could for a moment be out of our minds

we go back and forth so much, we’re rowing in the Olympics
I have so many secrets, but you still know all my business
you know way more about me than I know about you
is that how it’s supposed to be, cause I’m used to being the mystery
no one has been less readable, but we’re filled with predictability
not to say it’s a bad thing, I just know what I’m getting when I let you in
our bond is a brand and I sell it with pride
we go through some things, but I don’t hide
some days the timing is wrong and the line to get through to you is long
and I start thinking what type of shit my heart’s on to be so strong
biased towards you, so many free passes even when you’re wrong
we go days without talking to prove a point we can do without each other
but even if we could, why would we begin to bother
you’ve always been dangerous for my security
but nothing about you worries me
It’s all about the life I don’t have and the one I want
you can give me the life I want to flaunt

The Only One

I work to, try to do better too
but this world won’t let me forget you
the many places that I’ve been
every reflection I see your face in
always was a part of me
my lover and my worst enemy
spiteful to me, yet full of empathy
twists my words so that I’m never heard
lay my head to rest each night
knowing we’ll just never get it right

and yet I love you so
don’t want you to go
cause you are the only one

do my best to keep you around
give you a ring, my key, my crown

I stay up all day and all night
I work, I put in work, I fight
I fight for no one, I fight for someone
I am lonesome, I am the only one
the sun no longer shines at my door
no, no, no, not anymore

I too many times played the fool
lost in my commitment to you
foolishly thinking I could of ever won
when every thing I did was wrong
if I ever expressed distress
I no longer received your best
I always pretended that I didn’t come second
and that we were equally each other’s blessing
I’m the knife in my own back
I’ve betrayed myself taking a look back
dragging my feet down your road
knowing it leads somewhere cold

Above All Else

I can’t get a read on you
but just know I’m really feeling you
I can picture you and I together
marry me, be my forever
we can disagree, we can fight
but you and I will always be right
just think about our future
and how much it would suit you
stop chasing the shadows and follow the light
and we can lead each other in the right direction

let me spoil you with love and affection
give me the chance to be your protection
let’s provoke our minds with deep thought
or keep it simple on a nature walk
take a trip anywhere you desire
or go camping and sit around the fire
just imagine if we went backpacking
or the mischief we can make in a cabin

you’re my desire and I am determined
to create the perfect world for the perfect person
the one I love, above all else, take me as I am
say you love me too, take me as your man

tell me you trust me, that you love my touch
make me feel like I am more than enough
distract me from the chaos of this world
be my one and only girl
even with a lifetime ahead of us
we know that each other is enough
tell me that you are in love with me
and I will be yours for eternity

One Night Stand

you wear that dress and I want to be single again
you take it off and I want to be more than a friend
it’s more than just talk, I have means to an end
the way you work it gives me a new purpose
the trouble it would cause almost seems worth it
we probably wouldn’t treat each other right
but I just want to love you if only for a night
fuck you like love at first sight
I’d give it all just to know what you feel like
you got that cake and I just want a bite
and if sacrifices are to be made
I’m ok with any price to be paid

I just want to be an animal with you
we only want to keep it physical
we touch, we fuck in and out of love
we don’t stop til we get enough
it’s just a one night stand
one night closer to being your man

you wear those pants and I get a rise
and the way it shows your shape and hugs your thighs
please forgive the sinning being done by my eyes
I don’t want to compete with your past
but I would for those brains and that ass
I would do all the things he’s never done
it’s always you being served and first to come
because I want to cater to your every desire
I’m available for hire and ready to retire
from the games that men and women play
but only if you decide to come my way
I won’t do all the things he’s done
that was second rate and we come second to none

 
we’re not compatible but I still want to be bad with you
my fantasies about you are becoming habitual
we can do all the things you never thought you would
how could I turn down what feels so right, so good
I think it’s time we discussed an international affair
as you become a frequent flyer, ride with me in the air
and watch us take off and make off, no destination in mind
all that matters is that we’re in the right place and time
it doesn’t have to make sense, there is no hesitation
the things we’ll do have no salvation
there is no saving us from each other
and we don’t need saving when we have one another
we can just try each other out, if just for a night
and if it feels right, then we can discuss the rest of our life

Magic

I hate that we happen so effortlessly
sometimes there’s too much chemistry
for you to be with him, and not with me
and I almost lose it at the mere thought
that he’ll be at the end of the aisle you walk
that he is the one you really dream of
even though life is what happens when we team up
is it wrong that I entertain the thought of you being mine?
we share a bond that crosses so many lines
like its been there since the beginning of time
and I don’t want to wait for us not to happen
for us to start thinking what could of happened

my desire for you is a habit
we run on magic
we’re so close and so distant
with none of the same interests
yet I’m still interested
something about us keeps it going
the magic is in the mystery of not knowing

I always get caught up and seem to get it wrong
but there’s a trust we’ve shared for so long
though I’m still not sure I really know you
it feels like of all things, its my life I owe you
because everything changed when you became a regular
I see you everyday and still dream about forever
the difference you make in my demeanor
the way you make my arid heart a little greener
there’s something too real about how we connect
I want to make mistakes with you and have no regret
I want your heart to be mine to protect
despite how in stone our lives are set

It should say something, that we think nothing
that everyone else sees us as something
what we are is a match that occurs too naturally
for you I have nothing but love, actually
maybe I’m attracted to your other worldly side
It might be the way you are so alive
you know the truth that my eyes can’t hide
it’s you I confide it, because you let me in
but with no end in sight with him
there’s no real way for us to begin
we can always try to live this dream
but we’ll always be in between
the difference between something good and something great
a little too early and a little too late

Pretend it’s Nothing

why does it matter so much that you like me
if I shouldn’t care what you think?
concern myself with impressing you
when your presence shouldn’t even make me blink
why do I want you to notice the small details?
and ignore all the ways I could possibly fail?
why does my mind wonder as much as my eyes?
for you, I will tell all the necessary lies
I try to get your attention without whoring for it
I want to hold it, without mention, hoping that I am a fit
I just want to be next to you, don’t know when to quit

our situations make me dead wrong
for wanting what I’ve wanted for so long
lusting for those times we’re touching
we can pretend it’s nothing
but tell me we’re more than just something

I might be a little too honest
but your appeal keeps me astonished
and I just want to return the favor
I want a taste of your worst behavior
no fear of judgement, no rules
tell me what you want to do
all the trivial acts we could pursue
let’s play games that make you scream my name
and pretend that it’s nothing all the same
continue teasing me the way you do
give me endless reasons to lust after you

try to hide the realness of the passion
don’t worry about feelings lasting
there’s no avoiding that rush when we touch
that satisfaction that is always and never enough
a feeling that fades in when we start to fade out
a mix of everything with a little bit of doubt
on those nights it’s me you’re without
you want what it is I want, a way in
somewhere we can begin
now something’s got you thinking
the truth comes out when you’re drinking
and whenever I’m there something feels right
maybe it should be me with who you end your night

Art of Seduction

I come across your path and I lose it
forgot where I was going, I once knew
but is it ok for me to walk with you?
get to know you a little bit
you intrigue me in the strangest of ways
intelligence in the words you say
what’s your name, can I pick your brain?
from this point on, my life will never be the same
I was good on my own, but now I don’t want to be
i want to indulge in your world, if you let me
let’s start from square one
and build something so strong
that when you leave me, it won’t be so easy

I want the real thing, but I’ve heard you sing
the song of a siren luring men in
you don’t know the power you have
with a mind so in touch with the universe
and a charm that couldn’t be rehearsed
a face with a smile so easy on the eyes
and a figure that brings men to life
you don’t even try and its attractive
time with you is an addictive habit
and I can’t help it, but I don’t want to
there’s an art to being seduced by you

seduce me at your will
use me however you will
cause I will let you, if you will
get to know me and you will
run away with me if you will
and use me as you will
seduce me like you know you will

you are something to be experienced
with nothing left to be desired, except desires of more
of you, like I’ve never experienced you before
each interaction feels just like the first time
I can’t escape that feeling or get you off my mind
and I’m not blind to your flaws
the more I get to know you, I just want it all
I want to touch it all, I’m just ready to fall
forget everything else you got going on
Im the only project you should be on
around you I’m probably never thinking straight
but I want you now, so why should we wait
make me the man you make plans with
let me be the last person you quit

A Different Meaning

I used to have a thing for you
but you were never single
never a time where we aligned
that moment for us never existed
so those feelings, we poorly hid it
we had chemistry for a throwaway experiment
never got to test the hypothesis
no results from the things we never did
but the theory still stands

what if I were your man
things would change but be the same
a different meaning when you say my name
every door would be opened
loving words always spoken
I’d hold you instead of resisting
and know the feeling of winning

Just a little crush went a long way
it could be enough for the time of day
if you could notice me the way I notice you
we only live in dreams now
I want it to stop, but don’t know how
you appear and I don’t want you to leave
false memories that I want to believe
that’s the only way to feel close to you
but takes me further away from getting over you
I still can’t figure you out and that’s what draws me in
there was not suppose to be any interest to begin
but our moments alone, and something grew from that
when our eyes met, there was no turning back
even if we didn’t know it at the time
the thought always lived in my mind

being on the outside looking in
I can’t help but envy him
though we would agree it’s for the best
how does one lay thoughts of you to rest
disrupt the calm in my happiness
life feels like a predictable mess
I like the promise of your crazy
together we are a wreck
but we don’t know this yet
we will always go unchecked
all the possibilities undiscovered
we keep missing one another
and it always comes back to this
what if…we had a different meaning

Good Day

you seem happy and that’s a good thing
glad you found someone you can let in
make sure he sees your light
if he can’t see the reasons you glow
then the answer should be no
love where you’re going
appreciate where you’ve been
take a moment, reflect, take joy in reminiscing
it takes a fool not to know your worth
a coward not to ask why you hurt
and the right man to understand
what’s missing from your left hand
so if I were to steal you away
would you really object, what would you say
we can do everything that’s yet to be done
knowing the best is yet to come

when I don’t get to miss you
when I have no reason to stare
when I have no desire to care
then I know that its true
I just want another good day with you

you’ve come such a long way
appearing more beautiful every day
smarter than you know in an abundance of ways
your presence breathes life
and for you, everyone wants to do right
just to see you smile, such a sight
unscripted and without conviction
glimpses of a free spirit seen within
teases a potential that has no end

the way we run each other down
it’s a pleasure to have you around
gratitude rarely acknowledged
but the knowledge is far from rare
engaged in a rivalry with someone so fiery
our theme, good luck surviving me
I can’t stop staring
I can’t stop caring
we create moments I could never rue
your time isn’t something I shouldn’t look forward to
but who doesn’t want another good day with you

Queen City

you want to remain part of the city that made you a woman
a place where I was never a part of your life plan
and you want me to understand
why you love it so much
when I just want to feel my love is enough
I can’t put it into words that make any sense
the future is scary but your past is so tense
and I don’t want to revisit the memories
they are your best friends, making them my enemies
you can’t let go of them the way you once let go of me
so how should I feel when I was never good enough
after all the years I wrongly chased your love

I should get over it
I wasn’t always the perfect fit
you left home to sit on the throne
to reign over the Queen City
and now I’m finally starting to see
that had nothing to do with me

that part of you is over and this is where we begin
but that part of you is still holding on to him
because he was there when you wouldn’t let me in
he did what he needed and took care of you
when you wouldn’t let me be there for you
he took you in and made this your queen city
I can’t compete with a place you find so flawless, so pretty
all the connections I imagined now seem so one sided
I just wanted believe it was there and you had to hide it
but my words constantly fell on deaf ears
because I was too bold to acknowledge the reality of my fears
you had moved on living a life without me
I wasn’t living without you, so I resented this city
for taking away the one thing that felt true
for changing and manipulating you
for taking you out of my life, for dimming my light
all the love I fought to earn, you gave it to them without a fight

I feel so much, yet I come of as stoic
I inflict my own pain, and we both know it
the past is the past, time to get over it
I just don’t want to compete in an already decided battle
but that was my choice, I never had to
we made our decisions, that’s just part of living
I can’t let this city be my prison
hold me back, reliving something we never had
It made you the person that you chose to be today
so I shouldn’t really have anything to say
you are here now, I should never lose sight of that
I am a King, ready to take my Queen back
