Embrace
ShadowedWave

The clock strikes a quarter past three as we watch reruns on TV
 1
I couldn't tell you what was on if I tried,
 2
but listen to me, there's something on my mind
 3
Between my arms and inside my chest pumps a heart that has never stopped beating
 4
You've never given up on me, you've never lost sight of your dreams
 5
Promise us, promise me, understand I'm not as strong as I seem to be
 6
Beyond this stable and sturdy core is boy seeking for a purpose, for something more
 7
It seems you're the perfect shape for this feeble heart
 8
Broken dear, I need your solace, your tender embrace
 9
So sweet, so delicate, so smart, so original
 10
Sometimes it's so hard to be free when liberation only exists in sensor memory
 11
And it kills, I know, that pictures in a picture frame are just memoirs caught and
 12
thrown into confinement, no escaping
 13
But if a picture is all we have
 14
let's make tonight more then just a memory . . .
 15
let's make it a dream come true
 16
so that every night when we say our "goodbyes" we'll be in the presence of fervor
 17
I can't stand the thought of me leaving you to wander
 18
Don't you worry; I'll make up some excuse so I can stay a bit longer,
 19
Just one more night, I'll still fight for you
 20
like you fight for truth, how you fight with sincerity
 21
I'll fight because you know me, yet still . . . you choose to embrace me
