Songwriting & Lyrics: Only Waiting

1 Oct

© 2013 by Jessica Valentine

Are you my cowboy, I think you are

The way you lift your chin up and play your guitar

The way you sing your lyrics

From dreams afar

I’ve got a secret bigger than my brain

It’s that I remember that feeling

Things could have stayed the same

That hasn’t changed

I wonder how my life would have turned out

If I was brave enough to stay

If I hadn’t ran out on you

If I would have heard you play

That song that I said I didn’t like

When that comment lifted your brow

I knew nothing about you

Or how you’d turn me down

I knew I’d never see you again

And I don’t mind

Because I know how a cowboy’s life could end

And that is fine

But I am strong

And I know my way

I know in the end we will meet

Not now, but one day

And time will stand still

Time will stand still

So as for you my cowboy

I will not stand defeat

I will hold back

In my retreat

Only waiting

Only waiting
