Be My Love


Will you ever be my lover?
I’m just a simple straight boy
I play nothing undercover
Promise all thing except nothing

With the hope that is in me
If all they tell me is true
Paradise is where we ought to be
And no stress we’ll pass through

I put it up in you all my love
You hold me with all thyself
With no work in the wharf
We swim all day loving ourselves

Allow me give it all to you
Putting you up for the world to see
The things that a love can do
Dining both on land and in the sea

All wants and needs will be yours
Both home and in sojourn
No time shall you knock on the doors
All ways are open with your hand

You promise to keep me high
Even with the little I have
Keep your promise so it won’t be lie
‘Cause my trust I sold to you

Planning First


Waking up in the morning
I see the bright new day
Yesterday plans on my mind
Cos I need not let myself astray

To meet up with my daily plans
Here I have to walk away
Leaving other things behind
Pretending as if I won’t dare

My ignorance I take as a bliss
Feeling sorry for all my mistake
Lack of knowledge might have cause it
All the punishment you give, I’ll take

Please temper justice with mercy
All my works is to build our future
So we can smile then till eternity
Leaving behind all the rules of nature

No one else can share in my love for you
Not even my work can distract me
Ignoring you just to build our paradise
So then we can go there to be
