This Too Shall Pass

Verse 1
I’m not gonna pretend that I’ve never been up against
Hell on earth, My demons repent with a fiery vengeance
Its a second chance to breathe, I found solitude in the air we share
I feel secluded with you, blanketing my fears
I’m wrapped in your hypnotic undertone embracing every moment
I’ve showed my damaged soul and you appreciate that it was broken
They say “the eyes are the window to your soul”
So I’m suspended from your iris just to reflect my lack of ego
It feels like I’m the only one who can see beyond those hazel green eyes
(Green Eyes)
Meticulously masking her insecurities with a smile
We smile, lost in the crevices of denial
I smile for the fact that she’s as lost as I am
Confusion, on how to makeshift escape routes through music
Every word is plotted, strategically placed
Her eyes wandered off right before I heard her say

Verse 2
She’s scared that the feeling will fade, she says “this feelings amazing”
It’s fluttering again and “Contact” is the song we keep debating
She questions my motives and asks where I get my inspiration
It’s a soft spoken muse … My inspiration is you
But you haven’t seen the sides that make my mind off balance
You’ve made up an illusion to compliment your voids and confusion
Right now I’m on the edge of the bed she’s pacing in front of me
I can see her thoughts running through her head, purposely punishing
It’s a fascination with abomination so we dramatize our situation
Like life is death and love is blind and I’ve wrote this song a thousand
times
She approaches me, and finally takes a seat
I don’t know if she wanted to rest her legs or just sit next to me

Verse 3
Once she told me she’s scared of the scars, she said she cant handle the
bruises
I told her that I got a gentle touch, always caring and never abusive
She gave me a confused look like what I muttered was unimaginable
She put up her guards then quickly realized its her guards I’m passing
through
I followed her sentence with diligence and fulfilled all her undying wishes
She said my touch gave her goose bumps and no one has ever did this
We both have needs that need nurturing
The part that hinders this is the part that fucking worries me
I whispered in her ear and tell her “I don’t wanna let you go”
She grins like it was genuine unless she was uncomfortable
She sees right through me, masking window panes I look away
Can’t tell what she sees, so I assume the worst naturally
I won’t sacrifice my pride and hide the way I feel
You’ve heard it all before but know this time its real
This too shall pass, I don’t know what else to do
I don’t want to forget this moment … I wish I could stop you

Artist's Description

I have never been drawn to somebody like the person in this song. This is definitely based on a true story from my life. “I whispered in her ear and tell her I dont wanna let you go” … I said that on my front porch. It was one of those I know you want me and I want you but for other reasons we cant be together. Well, I couldn’t “just be friends” so I told her I cannot continue this and if she couldn’t take a chance on me I can’t be in her life. As it says in the end of the song … “I wish I could stop you” … I did. She is the love of my life and my future wife.
