NEED TO BE


NEED TO BE

S.JENSEN ©2018

TWENTY YEARS

I'VE WAITED

ISN'T THAT ENOUGH

ABOUT TO EAT

MY LUNCH

SITTING HERE

IN QUIET SILENCE

CARRIES OVER

KNOWING I LET

HIM GO

AND FOR GOOD

REASONS

LEAVES ME OPEN

AND OH SO LONELY

PAIN TOLERABLE

NOW FROM ANSWERS

FINAL GRACE

KNOW I WANT

TO LIVE

WANT TO BE

HEART IS CALM

OH I SHOOK IT OFF

ALL OFF MY SHOULDERS

LIKE BREAD CRUMBS

SWEET AROMAS

FLOW FROM INCENSE

KISSES TO THE AIR

FOR HONEY

FAR AWAY 

WHAT TO SAY

ANSWERS I TRIED

TO LEAVE

SEEM SO LEFT

UNDONE

WHERE I WANT TO BE

IN THE ARMS

AND COMFORT

TO MY FOREVER FRIEND

SET TO BE

WAITED SO LONG

NO WHERE TO TURN

HEART SHELL CRACKS

PEAK FOR REASONS

LEFT HERE

TRYING TO ACCEPT

THIS LONELY FATE

YET DEAR YOU

ARE ALL I THINK ABOUT

PULLED THE

LOVER'S CARD

YET NO WHERE IN SIGHT

SO BROKEN

BY MYSELF

NEEDED YOU

TO FIX THIS MESS

NEED TO BE

WITH YOU

NOT HERE

ON THE OCEANS 

BOTTOM

BE MY SUNSHINE

BRING ME HOME

TO YOU

WE BOTH SITTING

ALL THIS TIME

IS IT SO WASTED

WILL YOU LET ME

IN SOMEDAY

INTO YOUR LIFE

WITH YOU

OH THIS GYPSY CRAVES

THE ARTIST NEEDS

OH MY AQUARIAN SIDE

WANTS TRAVEL

I SAID I WOULD GO

ANYWHERE

AS LONG AS 

I GET TO BE

WHERE I NEED TO BE

THIS SUMMERS HEAT

BURNS TO MY CORE

OF THIS MAD SOUL

RAIDED RAYS OF LOVE

STRETCH THIN

TO UNKNOWNS

HONEY ERASED

NEVER REPLACED

WORDS OF OVER

RING OF A SILENT

GOODBYE

WHERE THIS LOST

HEART SEEKS

TO ROOT ITS TREE

TWINED TO YOUR LEGS

TO YOUR HOME

OH HOME SWEET HOME

WHERE I WILL ALWAYS

LONG TO BE

THE MUSE SETTLES

HERE YET THE NOMAD

IN ME BEGS ONE LAST TIME

COME CARRY ME

WHERE I NEED TO BE.

AS I REST AMONG

THE MANY COLOURED LEAVES

WALKING FREE

YET WALKING

SO DROWN IN LOVE

THAT NEVER HAS

HAD THE LIGHT OF DAY

TO SHINE BRIGHT

AS IT TRULY CAN BE

OH WHERE I NEED TO BE

YET HERE I AM

AND HERE I STAY

I HAVE NO CHOICES

LEFT TO THE VISES

OF WHAT LIFE HAS DIRECTED ME

HERE

PETALS FALL

AND HEARTS CRACKS 

HEAL YET SO GLUED FOR NOW

I FEEL THE LONE WOLF

THE WONDERING DOG

IN A CIRCLE

CHASING THE DRAGONS TAIL

LET IT ALL FADE AWAY

CUS I JUST HAVE NO

WAY TO SCREAM IT 

ANYMORE

THOUGHT I WOULD BE THERE

WHERE I NEED TO BE

SO NOW I JUST 

EXIST ON SOME

WAVES FLOATING

LIKE DRIFT WOOD

TIL MY ROOTS

HAVE A PLACE TO STAY

IN YOUR HEART

IN YOUR LIFE

NOT HERE ALONE

OH WHERE I NEED TO BE...
