I never worried when I would see you again.  although the fear of the world tearing us apart kept me awake, I never worried when I would see you again.  even through the heartaches.   you’re...

Each song was a heavenly mess of a melody. Written for the souls, With holes for the hearts And for the emotions. That seem as empty as the oceans Themselves. The music brought them back, Until...
