Needin' You

Needin' You

A Poem by Damien Ridge
"

A song I wrote for my girlfriend.

"

Don't know if cause he's getting older
If he's showing that he's getting tired of it all
A lit cigarette, loves singing
Sing him a better verse so he can listen for a hint of sin in it
A sinner sitting like a sentenced prisoner
Sick of all of it that's piled up since he was a kid
So he sinks his meds
Always thinking if
If he was rich he'd give
Maybe he's rich, instead
Of all the glitz and glammer
He was built for stamina
This is how he was
This is how he is
This is the amount of love
Given without a look 
Drink the fountain of
Youth, and now a look
Got the devil on his shoulder
Holding up his own while he's smoldering
Smoking that something
Soaking alone in the sun
But all of the sudden
There's someone in love 
And so is he 
They sow a seed
It's like they know this scene
It's like a book adapted to a movie
It's nice to see but to read it's so beautiful
Sitting by a campfire 
With their hand's tied
That's her man smiling
He could say I love you
And that's something that's true
He could dance right now
Honey that's right 
How we past time
What'll never last, crying
Never stand by while she's down
Never let her crash, free her from drowning
Stealing the crown, he is a mountain
She is the now
He is astounded
She isn't challenging his opinion when it's different
And there's a balance between them you can't get with just anyone
She's not just anyone
Please stop time while he meets those eyes with a geeked up smile

Baby count 1 2 3
For the rest of my life 
I'll be needing you, needing you
Just stop a second
Before we sing 5 6 7 8
I'm needing you, I'm needing you

He played his cards
Had the ace of spades
It almost saved him but
But he's never played this game before
Didn't know that he was safe so he folded
Brave, so he told her
Never been so intensely in love and he's been hurt before
Innocent in intentions, it's something he was searching for
So don't you go pick him apart, as long as you give him your honesty
This whole thing could be like winning the lottery
She's a queen being treated like gold
A kiss in the morning
Holdin her close while he kisses her more
This is the order
In the chaos
Convinced she's his soulmate
Some would think it's impossible
What are the odds, can't stop thinking
He is in love with a goddess, 
It's not an option to be without her
His heart's just beating louder
A start to freedom and that's a promise
Even after they age

Had our first kiss in a field of fire flies
So magical, dancin, how did this happen
That's not your average attraction
Perfect match, understanding and passion
Put the past in a box
Burn it in the wind till the bandage is gone 
Pass him the rock
Skippin across the water
Hittin the thought's that bother
Give him a little smile
He'll give you his all and follow

You deserve all the attention in the world. This song is so beautiful! The words, the metaphors, the everything is wonderful. I especially like how you compared their story to a book adaptation. It was wonderful. Keep writing!

Love,
