Stupid in love

By Charlie Williamson

I sit and breathe

In, love 

Out, love 

.

Figuring out my thoughts that fly with rose tinted glasses

Sprung from a dream so real and lovely I couldn’t pass it

Logic is out the window 

Expectations dropped low

I sit and wonder how in the world the world doesn’t see my love

The way I see my love who lights up my world

No rhyme nor reason 

No fear nor treason

Certainly no betrayal now Cupid is hard at work

I lose myself in those eyes and gorgeous smirk

I sit and breathe

In love, 

Out, love

Old love seethes

.

Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars

Each bright one watching this passion burn like mars

A cold front is coming tonight

Prepare yourselves for a fright

I know the chip on your shoulder was carved by somebody else 

And I will fight for us because we both know there’s nobody else

They say I’m stupid in love

I laugh and rise above

While keeping low and sorry for being late to the phone how was your day I will make you a cup of tea now don’t be silly tell me what’s wrong I’m sorry I will do better let me help I love you I love-

.

I sit and breathe

In, love

Out, love

Back in my day I wasted so much time being stupid in love

I think I almost hear my grandmother say to me from up above 

A penny for your thoughts 

I see all crosses no noughts

There is no equality in that because the game will not game 

The way a game should. I hang my head with blame in shame

The glass broke in my hand

In the heart of this dreamland

And the pieces fall and break the façade while I know I was stupid in love

.

I sit and breathe

In, love

Out love.
