Before You
 Before You
By: Kayla Meyers

Every day in this cold and gray, lonely world

The colors blend and time collides

Don’t know how or why or when

My soul is bare, I’m dead inside

Nothing anymore to make me feel alive

 

Before you, before I saw your face

And the light of your smile, like the warmth of a thousand

Burning suns, electricity radiating through my soul

And I realize there was never any life

I was never quite alive, before you

Before you

 

I never saw a sunset before, the depth of the night

The rose never bloomed, all the stars did not shine for me

Now the world breathes again, and time has stopped

Oh, I can’t explain how everything changed, since I heard your voice

 

Before you, before I saw your face

And the light of your smile, like the warmth of a thousand

Burning suns, electricity radiating through my soul

And I realize there was never any life

I was never quite alive, before you

Before you

There is a balance of life; for every positive there will be a negative, and with every negative soon will come a positive. If you hold on long enough through all the bad, you'll be able to find something wonderful and cherish it all that much more.

Synopsis
A long time ago I dabbled in song writing, but it never came natural for me and so I gave it up. Then my friend is who a local musician, knowing that I am a writer, asked if I would like to write some lyrics for him to record as one of his songs. Obviously I said yes, and here is the finished result.
