Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes

“Somewhere Only We Know”

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river, and it made me complete

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old, and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired, and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old, and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired, and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old, and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired, and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go?
So why don’t we go?

This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know?

Someday…

We won’t have to miss each other like this

We won’t have to wait to taste the perfect kiss

Or see the other’s face

“I Am”

I love this entire album by Christina Aguilera, but this song always warms my heart.

(I needed very much to feel¬†special today and Mr. X really helped this morning – thank you, Sir ‚̧ )

I hope you enjoy it, too

I am timid and I am oversensitive
I am a lioness, I am tired and defensive
You take me in your arms and I fold into you
I have insecurities, you show me I am beautiful

Love me or leave me
Just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy
Just need you to see me

Take me, free me
See through to the core of me
Take me, free me
There will be no more pretending

I am temperamental and I have imperfections
And I am emotional, I am unpredictable
I am naked, I am vulnerable
I am a woman, I am opening up to you

Love me or leave me
Just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy
Just need you to see me

Now I stand before you with my heart in my hands
I’m asking you to take me just the way that I am
Please lay down your arms, do you know me?
Make me feel safe from harm

I am temperamental and I have imperfections
And I am emotional
There will be no more pretending
