The Way I Need To Feel

Tell me sweet nothings

Like it’s nothing

It should come naturally to you

Like the color of the ocean with a deep blue hue

When your heart beats

Let that be the sound of my name

Call it like it’s not a shame

When you touch me, I need to quiver like a river

With currents so high, they look like they shiver

And if I shiver, I need you to hold me

Like a believer, let your solace be me

Need me, like a seed in the soil needs water to grow

Plant your seeds in me, in my loins that they may flow

Be the left to my right or the right to my left

Sticking together like fish trapped in a net

We can cut through it and swim out together

Like the hurdles we jump to get to the finished line together

There is no me without you or you without me

That’s the way it’s supposed to be

If the love is real

Then this is the way I need to feel
