To my readers

To: My current and future readers

From: An unknown but longing writer

I changed some of the lyrics to fit writers more, but the meaning still stands. From artist to artist, it’s all the same. We need you, Readers.

Give me a heart to hold the godlike truth
Give me one good soul that I can tell it through
Give me good reason to believe in you
And give me strength if you have time

Give me two hands that’ll hold this up
And know you give me no more than just enough
You gave a pair of [hazel] eyes that could call a good bluff
And somebody who thinks they shine

You, I just want you
I just want you

Spent most of my life [writing words down]
Giving all that I got ’til I head back home
And when the lights go out, and I’m all alone
I’ve got no reason to be crying

And on a bad day I feel like a masochist
Take it away from me if it’s for the best
Somehow I’ve ended up the head of this
Freight train that isn’t mine

You, I just want you
I just want you

So take it all away
If it isn’t meant for me
I don’t want the easy way
I just want you
They can give me everything
But at the end of the day
The only words I’ll say
Is “I just want you”

Ooooh, mmmm, mmmm

It’s all so simple when you break it all down
Two roads converged down on a hallowed ground
It’s taken all my life to hear the sacred sound
Of sweet simplicity

Saying “Give it all back, it don’t mean a thing”
You got a short-lived life and a [book to write]
And the only way up is believing
In never looking down

So take it all away
If it isn’t meant for me
I don’t want the easy way
I just want you
They can give me everything
But at the end of the day
The only words I’ll say
Is “I just want you”

You, you, you
You, you, you, mmmm

 

*The original song was written by the lovely Sara Bareilles. All rights go to her and her godlike music skills. Thank you, Sara, for sharing the truth of all artists and being amazing. – Also, the photo is from my freshman year of high school at Poteet. Do you remember when you visited my school, Sara?
