Song: "Lately" by Giovanni's Rumi




"Lately"

by Giovanni's Rumi


.oOo.

You hate me
cause you love me

so you debate me
and spate me
with words and feelings

when really
what you want
is for me to give my heart
to your wild, unbridled passion

live like nothing seems to matter
two horses
one field
where the wind provides the feel


I

the way things have been going lately
we've been living in extremes
the chasm in between
of things we didn't mean

turbulence is on the scene
entangling our serene
words so obscene
to the level of screams

but beyond that
how we crash together

on the rocks

across every boulder
repeatedly washed away
now we've gotten older

seems like all the hate
lives unfairly on our shoulders
making us grow colder

indifferent love


CHORUS

you hate me
cause you love me

so you berate me
and shame me
more words and feelings

feelings
from your home
causing thoughts of all alone


II

the way things have been going lately
we've been living in extremes
ripped apart at the seams
mist away all the dreams

if we could only come back
to that place in the One
uniting us again
and when all is said and done

we can be back to love
and a thousand and a one hugs

where fulfillment is the heart

and is the start
of a brand new day
for you and for me

rivers flow into sunlit waters
sparkling light in every direction
reminding us of all the best inflections

love resurrection


.oOo.

You hate me
cause you love me

so you debate me
and spate me
with words and feelings

when really
what you want
is for me to give my heart
to your wild, unbridled passion

live like nothing ever matters
two horses
one field
where the wind provides the feel
