Song (untitled)

I wrote this song a few years ago, and I’ve wondered if it was publishable. There’s no music yet… I’m just the velveteen librettist. This goes out to all the women in my life that have defined time, and they all know who they are.

When you turn your eyes toward me
it gets harder to control
the longing to belong to you
to kiss from soul to soul

If only you could see
what lies beyond my eyes
to see your life unfolding
to watch you grow toward endless skies

Your passion lights my fire
a drive from deep within
to be a better woman
than I was when we began

But I don’t wanna cross your path
Until we finally agree
I bring out the best in you
’cause you bring it out in me

It’s been hard for me to Wander,
Lonely as a Cloud…
Wondering what I’d say to you
if my voice was strong and loud

Enough to cut through metal
The barbed fence around your heart
You’re so afraid to take it down
When I try, I’m ripped apart.

Miles will give us courage
to get through this Kind of Blue…
our hearts meander thoughtfully
down a path we hope is true.

One we hope releases us
from this cycle we’ve begun
The one where you say you love me
as you rev up for the run

But I don’t wanna cross your path
Until we finally agree
I bring out the best in you
’cause you bring it out in me

I'm 42. I am single, probably because geeks don't get laid. But I do enjoy that my age is now the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.
