    Here...
    Take me by the hand
    So that i can ease my fingers through yours
    My eyes are burning from my salty tears
    My heart is lifted from my soul as you squeeze me tighter
    My mind thinks wiser by decreasing the importance of self
    Only because i want and desire to be apart of you

    Here...
    Take me by the hand
    So that i can ease my fingers through yours
    A smile crosses my face whenever you look at me
    The little girl inside me breaks out of her cocoon when blessed with your presence
    My butterflies are no longer relevant because i have gotten accustomed to the comfort of you

    Here...
    Take me by the hand
    So that i can ease my fingers through yours
    I wanna build a foundation of trust, loyalty, and understanding
    Present myself as a modest person needed to be respected
    I humble myself at the crown of your head to the sole of your feet
    And If there were to be an audtition to play the role of your queen
    I would give you my heart as a gift so that i could sit next to your throne

    Here...
    Take me by the hand
    So that i can ease my fingers through yours
    My eyes are burning from my salty tears
    My heart is lifted from my soul as you squeeze me tighter
    My mind thinks wiser by decreasing the importance of self
    Only because i want and desire to be apart of you

    Here baby...
    Take me by the hand
    So that i can ease my fingers through yours
    And as we take the next step
    I want you to humbly lift your feet as if to walk
    But wait...I beg of you
    Don't take me by the hand if your not williing
    This is a journey i desire
    Only to share with you....
