FRANCES – SAY IT AGAIN

You run with the sun in your eyes
Arms open to whatever you find
Then there’s me
Hopelessly trying to find a way
Of hearing three little words from your mouth
And not feeling this heaven with doubt
Humor me, I know you’ve said it but

Say it again
I wanna know that you mean it, this time
Say it again
I know that I should believe it
But I never thought someone
Would love me like you say you do
Say it again, and I’ll say it back to you

You’re holding my heart in your hands
And it’s the safest feeling I’ve had, it can’t be true
Someone like you, feels this way for me
I hear three little words from your mouth
And my heart can’t figure it out
So humor me, I know you’ve said it but

Just say it again
I wanna know that you mean it, this time
Say it again
I know that I should believe it
But I never thought someone
Would love me like you say you do
Say it again, and I’ll say it back to you

I know you’ve said it but just
Say it again
I wanna know that you mean it, this time
Say it again
I know that I should believe it
But I never thought someone
Would love me like you say you do
So say it again, and I’ll say it back to you

EIGHT MONTHS

miscarriage-sad-woman-320x320

You were gone in a second
Yet existed inside my womb
Eight months I felt you alive
Eight months I knew you were real
Eight months I had planned for you
Eight months I waited to see you
I wish I had held you longer

You disappeared in a minute
Yet existed in my heart
Eight months I felt your heart beat
Eight months I felt your foot kick
Eight months I felt your turns
Eight months I felt your hiccup
I wish I had felt you longer

You went away in an hour
Yet existed inside my mind
Eight months I spoke to you
Eight months I sang for you
Eight months I read to you
Eight months I laughed with you
I wish I had talked to you longer

You slept forever in a day
Yet existed not in my arms
Eight months I could have loved
Eight months I would have named
Eight months I should have had you
Eight months I will not have with you
I wish I could hold you longer
