Alicia Keys Feat. Drake - UnThinkable (I'm Ready) [Remix]

(i need you to rescue me from my destiny)

I been alone in my mind most my life-

Searching for someone to love me for me- flaws, fractures, cracked jaw

Maybe it isn't meant for me

I was loved twice- maybe that is all i get

I stand alone in an empty room- And I see the colors with tear filled eyes

Trying so hard to make my life better, working, slaving with a broken body & a broken heart

Get up every morning working with a body full of pain

I hold the tears back as much as I can- The medicine only helps so much

Look in the mirror at the grey on my temples i cover with dye

Look at the lines under my eyes- You have aged me baby- Took away what I needed most

I can't blame you, I'm complicated, broke & all I could give you was love

Love that sears your heart & soul

I go on....One foot in front of the other

And men....They try to get to me where I work-

Try to grab a piece of me- I can't let them in- Can't let them stay the night in a bed I shared with you-

E.M. Forrester sat inside a room filled with dread, filled with doom

His heart ached to be whole again. He wanted to be what he considered "normal"

He stared out his window at the children while they played

He felt the barriers that come with age

His thoughts ran to the time when he was young- When the taste of life was new upon his tongue

Remembered snowy days, and Autumn sun

Thoughts of his true love seared his mind..Her breasts against his chest in Winter. He thought of the way he use to trace his thumbs down the frame of her cheek bones

Holding his breath at her beauty

Wanting so much for that moment to be freeze framed for all time- For the world to stop turning- So caught up was he in her love

But time only stands still in our feeble minds- And the moment vanished like a specter in a shady field of grey

And E.M. Forrester was alone again in a room full of books and dust and memories.

I'm stuck inside a line. Caught behind a rhyme. Trying to dig my way out without committing crimes.

It's hard when you work 24/7 with so little pay.

You got mouths to feed bills to pay.

Shoes to buy to cover bare feet. Car payments to make.

Love becomes 2nd place, a hope, a dream that you think could take place. You want it so bad, but working becomes 1st place.

So you block out the hurt, block out the pain. Despair seems to be second nature.

Gotta be strong. Gotta survive-

Your kids are watching

The whole world is looking, it seems.

To see if you crumble, if you fall under the pressure.

They are hoping, you break free from the past, that hangs on your neck like dirty rags.

I will. I will break free and make myself a name.

August Rush....

Words of wisdom: If someone is running towards you really fast and they look happy...Run..They usually have something you don't want.

Lay with me on the ground and let's watch the clouds together, please? And Let's pretend we are little kids again...I will hold your hand and my heart will beat so fast...Just because my hand is in yours.

(These clouds captivated me today...that is one thing we have here...Beautiful skies & clouds)

The first step in having a new life, is believing you can have one.

I believe....
