You make it fun to be weak

When I go to you

We can be serious with a smile

The love behind our eyes won’t peak

 

When it’s only for fun

We give what we need

But it’s just for now

We won’t end as one

 

Maybe you’re right

That I’m weak for doing this

But that’s just the price I pay

For holding on and loving

Even when it hurts

 

But that’s only a side effect

You’re what my life prescribes

To keep my head on straight

As I laugh at this beautiful mess

Picking the pieces to build

 

I’ve found my head tends to float

And a dose of you points me straight again

I ask and you show me

How to stay aboard the boat

 

Introspection leads to understanding

But can go way deep time and again

And I need a way back before long

To sustain relationship, a lonesome head withstanding

 

With you in my system I can go

Venturing into myself not alone

My crutch keeps me from the traps

And the good helps the fruit sow

 

Maybe you’re right

That I’m weak for doing this

But that’s just the price I pay

For holding on and loving

Even when it hurts

 

But that’s only a side effect

You’re what my life prescribes

To keep my head on straight

As I laugh at this beautiful mess

Picking the pieces to build

 

Like champagne on a special day

I use you to celebrate my ways

The good will pull through to win

The mistakes bring closer my say

 

I put my best foot forward

But not too far or I’ll trip

I still stumble, but I adjust

Knowing what to move toward

 

So together we clink our flutes

And sip the bubbles from life

We share the joys rising up and salute the bad

As we dance to the music from the lutes

 

Maybe you’re right

That I’m weak for doing this

But that’s just the price I pay

For holding on and loving

Even when it hurts

 

But that’s only a side effect

You’re what my life prescribes

To keep my head on straight

As I laugh at this beautiful mess

Picking the pieces to build
