about

They say that love is a choice. Although I still tend to think that there is some magic and mystery involved, I believe it. Or at least I believe that keeping it alive and beautiful is a choice.
“Don’t Lose Hope. Don’t Let Go.” is a picture of a relationship where everything has somehow gone sideways. A picture of two people waking up together, close only in physical proximity.
Nothing is beautiful anymore and you feel so far from what you were. Somehow everything has become a fight.
The distance has done it’s job and you begin to realize how much you’ve failed in being what you should have been for them and wondering if it’s too far gone- too late to turn everything around.
Stop.
Breathe.
Just for a moment. I need you to see how sorry I am....
Sorry that I haven’t been what you needed.
Sorry that in my actions and in my words I valued myself above you.
I’m not arguing my case.
I’m not trying to win anymore.
I’m not shooting back.
I want to love you more than I want to be right.

I’m done with everything but winning your heart again.

lyrics

you’re still here in my arms but you’re not with me anymore.
the cost has come too great- i could not see it there before.
each morning when we wake it crashes on you like a wave.
and it’s all that you can do to keep the tears off of your face,
and i cannot tell you how the story’s going to end
we only stand and watch as it unravels like a thread

I will not lose hope, I’m never letting go.
finger tips were made the catch the things we cannot hold.

well I have found that I am not the man I wish to be
a place for you to go like the animals in our tree
so I dig myself a hole and cover myself up
and pray that God would send the rain and it would do its job
and I would grow tall and I would grow strong
and I would stand the years and be some comfort in this storm

I will not lose hope, I’m never letting go.
finger tips were made the catch the things we cannot hold.
