    I am destined for a Journey...
    to a special place.

    I have room for one person....
    Will you take that space...

    I want to take you to see the wonders....
    Of my new found land...
    I want to show you what grown folks do...
    a man and woman.

    I want to show you a place,
    that pumps the blood through our vains.
    Where you will find love, joy and pain.

    I want to take you for that ride....
    on my ocean waves...
    And my sea isn't ruff...
    so you'll life will be saved...:D

    and we will flow into a river of amazement...
    Passing lives that came and went...
    and on this journey...the time we've spent...

    I want us to take that sail...
    Happy landing's....
    merry trails....

    I am destined for a Journey...
    to a special place.

    I have room for one person....
    Will you take that space...

    I need someone to talk....
    possibly to walk....
    with.

    To tell my deep dark secrets...
    I hope you can keep a secret.
    And if I start to cry...
    I know you won't ask why...
    Cause you're understand...
    I need someone understanding
    on my journey.

    I'll let you think about it....
    I'm in no hurry...
    I just want to take you with me....
    when i go on my journey.
