Violet Hearts

Mocha kisses and strolls in the city
You smile at me and tell me I'm pretty
Trapped in a pink dungeon all day
Waiting for my love to take me away

"Love can prevail death," you said that night
You called me your love, your rose, your light
The sound of your cries through the phone
Made me feel like I'm not alone

We fell in love at only sixteen
Violet hearts on a plastic screen
June third was the night
You told me it would be alright

Dancing in your room to born to die
Making love on the fourth of July
Laughing about nothing all night long
Times like that made me strong

Trying to live the American dream
Suburban Ohio is not what it seems
Small town kids trying to get out
Wondering what life is really about

Conversations about music, art, and fashion
Discovering ourselves and our true passion
New york city is where we're meant to be
In a small apartment drinking our morning coffee

Cuddling on the couch while watching our favorite shows
Spending all of our money on clothes
Walks to the library to write poetry together
Lying in the grass enjoying the August weather

Flowers in my hair, lavender on my lips
Five years shared attached at the hip
We were the lucky ones from the start
Our love will always be a work of art

Part time lover, full time friend
I know this will never end
Spending years by your side
The virgin and the ram collide

You promised me this summer you'd show me true love
And that life is beautiful and a gift from above
Drowning in doubt, fighting to stay alive
Three months under the sun with you taught me how to survive
