    "A Hundred Years"
    (C) 2009

    I like to think I walk with purpose
    When the spotlight's glaring down
    I don't take steps until I'm certain
    That my feet will find the ground
    And I make sure my paths are straight lines
    Yeah, my strides are always sound
    But, sometimes, I let myself trip
    When there's no one around

    I like to keep the world at arm's length
    But you got into my space
    You tugged at my mask of indifference
    And you pulled it off my face
    Sometimes, I feel so bare around you
    Yeah, I almost feel ashamed

    I'm like a catch without the chase
    But you make me feel like that's okay

    And I don't know what's going on
    But I'd like to stay here for a hundred years with you
    You turn my poems into songs
    And I'm scared to death, but I'd face all my fears for you
    I know it shouldn't be that easy
    But who said love had to be hard?
    I swore I'd never grace the grounds of canyons
    But you make me want to fall that far

    I stick to plans and stop at red lights
    Yeah, I follow all the rules
    I go to church and pray to Jesus
    Every Sunday around noon
    I keep my elbows off the table
    And don't say anything too rude
    But, sometimes, I let myself curse
    When there's no one in the room

    I keep a sunny disposition
    Even when it hurts to smile
    You find me when I feel like crying
    And keep me laughing all the while
    You wear your heart out on your sleeve
    You're just as honest as a child

    And when you're sad, tears fall like rain
    But when you grin, the stars seem plain


    I like to think I walk with purpose
    Your stride's no faster than a snooze
    My steps are always quick and curt, but
    I don't mind slowing down for you
    You make me stop to take a breath
    I make sure you always follow through

    And there is not a word that tastes
    As lovely to me as your name


    I like to think I walk with purpose
    And I'm headed straight to you
