    I love you more with everyday A thousand reasons; a thousand ways A thousand words that I could say From a thousand miles away. I love you here; I love you now I need to love you near somehow. To close this gap between you and me This thousand mile eternity. I love your heart; I...

    Friendship

    My arms are chained, my legs are chained,

    mind is useless he won't tell. I hear a giggle deep inside, is it my soul dancing 'round or yet another broken memory? Have I seen my own eyes for who they really are, Have I ever talked so true that my voice starts to tremble? Is there a man in this world who can say...
