You Are Love

1 Feb

I wish you saw yourself how I see you
Little sister wanted to be you
And I know you worry about how it will end
But when the smoke settles you’ll see a friend
All your choices were rebellion in disguise
But at least you enjoyed the ride
And regret has been the devil on your shoulder
Cause when you’re 16 you think the world is over
But listen to these words now that you’re older
You are young
And this is life
You take the pain
And walk with pride
You are loved
And you’re enough
You are love
Oh, you are love
And there was nothing you could do
Cause it was all meant to be
All the choices you made were executed perfectly
Cause you were dancing to the beat of fates drum
You were standing before a loaded gun
And baggage is a scar that spreads across your heart
But don’t let it tear you apart
Cause when you’re 16 you think the world is over
But listen to these words now that you’re older
You are young
And this is life
You take the pain
And walk with pride
You are loved
And you’re enough
You are love
Oh, you are love
So don’t you hide behind your regretful cries
Don’t keep your secret hidden in your eyes
Stand up and scream for the world is yours
And if you encounter an unfriendly face
Turn to me and I’ll be your brace
There is no time for all this hate
You are love
And I know you worry about how it will end
But when the smoke settles you’ll see a friend
All your choices were rebellion in disguise
But at least you enjoyed the ride
And regret has been the devil on your shoulder
Cause when you’re 16 you think the world is over
But listen to these words now that you’re older
You are young
And this is life
You take the pain
And walk with pride
You are loved
And you’re enough
You are love
Oh, you are love
To me

For Pompona.
