    another song....:)


    verse 1

    have you ever loved someone but you won't admit it?
    and you try to hide that love from every person you meet
    the feelin' is so strong, sometimes you break down cryin'
    wishin' for that person to hold you, touch you
    have you ever seen that person standin' right in front of you?
    and you wish they would just kiss you on your face
    but you try your hardest to avoid these feelin's
    but sometimes their just too strong


    chorus

    i promised myself
    i wouldn't fall in love with you
    i promised myself
    your love for me would never come true
    i promised myself
    i was strong enough to go on
    and i promised myself
    i was not in love


    verse 2

    have you ever been so close to kissin' someone?
    that you regret it when you go along life's way
    and you realize that kiss could have begun a relationship
    you never intended to have
    well i've done all this before with a boy i know
    and we knew we were wrong for each other
    that's i why i promised myself i would never fall in love with him
    i tried my hardest to avoid these feelings
    but sometimes they're just too strong


    (back to chorus)


    hook

    some say love isn't a real thing
    some say love is only for fools
    some say love at my age doesn't come true
    but how do they know?
    how can they tell?
    when they don't know who i am?


    verse 3

    now i kept these feelin's hidden for so long
    and i hid them from myself, so untrue
    cuz i promised myself that we were so wrong for each other
    never alike in any kind of way
    but i'd love to be with him any time of day
    but i still promised myself


    chorus 2

    but i've come to find
    that i've fallen in love with you
    and i've come to find
    your love for me has come true
    and i've come to find
    i am strong enough to go on
    and i've really found
    that i am in love
    yeah...

    That was sweet. Women often wonder. Does this kind of thing happen to guys. YES! We won't admit it to you ladies. Or to the fellows.. cause they would never let you live it down. Was it love at first sight? That is the kind of love that when he/she walks into the room, something goes off inside. Well Hodee was, and I can't lie.. i'm still stuck on a ladie I may never see again. We only stay in contact thru distant friends.

    Like the flow of your song. She asks about me, and I ask about her. If she is happy, Then I'm happy. ( really broken hearted with out her.. )

    You know the poem. ( If you love someone /something set it/ them free if it returns it's yours. If it doen't it never was )

    She remains very special, and could always kick my door in. Love can conquer something.. it has a grip on me. In my poem.. when you sleep. I wrote that for her. I didn't come to terms with missing her and couldn't think sometimes. Thoughts of her running thru my mind. That women has a hold on Hodee he likes. I would play her game.. on her terms in her court.
