    Darling, rest your crown
    Our secret's safe tonight
    There's no exposure
    Tucked under the sheets
    No one will ever know about us
    Darling, hold my hand
    Only our eyes will watch
    Keep up with whispers
    It will help us hide
    No one will ever hear about us

    Forbidden,
    Dangerous to be together
    But we won't listen, our hearts already combined
    Just promise,
    Don't give up on me
    We can play this game, for the rest of our lives

    Darling, don't be scared
    Suspicion is not around
    We're smarter than them
    My eyes plus yours too
    No one will ever think about us

    Forbidden,
    Dangerous to be together
    But we won't listen, our hearts already combined
    Just promise,
    Don't give up on me
    We can play this game, for the rest of our lives

    No turning back
    You've got me for life
    It's as much your fault as it is mine
    Someday we'll share
    We'll both be burned alive
    It's as much your fault as it is mine

    This love is forbidden,
    It's dangerous to be together
    Oh, oh
    Forbidden,
    Dangerous to be together
    But we won't listen, our hearts already combined
    Just promise,
    Don't give up on me
    We can play this game, for the rest of our lives

    This love
    It's as much your fault as it is mine
    But we can keep a secret
    L.O.V.E.

    Don't ever, never, if forever let those dreams fall. We are in this together."

    heres my entry! its about falling in love for the first time:)
    Falling
    I didnt believe in true love,
    heard so many sad songs,
    that i thought something must always go wrong.
    Spent time building walls, to protect my heart,
    but you come along, and they all crumble apart.
    Chorus:
    I think youve got me falling for the first time,
    but im too shy to ask you if you feel the same.
    its scary, breathtaking and magical.
    Im falling for you...
    Verse:
    You smiles like the warmest sunshine.
    you look at me. do you feel the magic?
    Youre in my dreams, and i believe,
    this is love.
    Chorus:
    I think youve got me falling for the first time,
    but im too shy to ask you if you feel the same.
    its scary, breathtaking and magical.
    Im falling for you...
    Verse:
    Youre telling jokes, and im laughing,
    you are so perfect for me,
    dont you see?
    i miss you like crazy when i dont see you for days,
    i need you.
    Chorus:
    I think youve got me falling for the first time,
    but im too shy to ask you if you feel the same.
    its scary, breathtaking and magical.
    Im falling for you...
    Outro:
    I didnt believe in true love,
    heard so many sad songs,
    but now i know i got it wrong...
    'cause ive fallen for you.

    Hi!!!! Here is my song for round 1!


    West Side Story

    V1
    Oh I love the way
    You don’t care what people think
    When you talk to Me
    The whole world starts to sink
    We mAy come from different sides of town
    But you’re all I think of now-ow

    P.C.
    This story mAy sound familiar
    Remember, he couldn’t be with her

    Chorus
    This cAn be our west side story
    I know, you’ll Never leave me lonely
    Our families may Disagree
    But you’ll still wrap your arms around me
    So climb up the fire escape now-ow
    Sing me a ballad nice and loud-oud
    ‘Cause this is our west side story

    V2
    Like Romeo and Juliet
    Give me someThing I won’t forget
    I see thOse nasty glares
    But they haveN’t stopped us yet
    They’re always trying to keep us apart-art
    But they can’t change what’s in our hearts-earts

    P.C.
    This story maY sound familiar
    Remember, he couldn’t be with her

    CHORUS

    Bridge
    Oh we’re changing the story now
    There’s no tragedy or heartbreak
    Only magic and love in the air

    CHORUS

    Outro
    Oh oh our west side story
    We may come from different sides of town
    But just look at us now

    Hey I'll enter with my song for Round 1
    Reckless Love
    It all began one Thursday morning,
    The sky was grey and dismal,
    Like everything was all wrong,
    Apart from your eyes like crystals.

    You spoke to me for the first time,
    And I felt the butterflies flutter,
    Like I knew I needed you real bad,
    Your hair smelt like cocoa butter...

    All I remember is that this love began,
    On a Thursday in a classroom,
    Those words you said melted my heart,
    It lead me away from the gloom.
    Your reckless love...

    Before I know it we're sat in a cafe,
    Drinking tea like a old married couple,
    That's when I realized the truth,
    What could follow from that cuddle.

    Next thing I know the rumors began
    Apparently he wasn't mine to take,
    The popular girls clenched onto him,
    Slithering onto him like a poisonous snake.

    All I remember is that this love began,
    On a Thursday in a classroom,
    Those words you said melted my heart,
    It lead me away from the gloom.
    Your reckless love...

    So now as I sit here,
    Regretting my entire life,
    It etches away my inner soul
    Turning everything back to that grey sky.

    One day you'll think of me I know,
    That girl you wasted a week on,
    I'll thing about you too you see,
    My first and last reckless love...

    Hey I'll enter with my song for Round 1
    Reckless Love
    It all began one Thursday morning,
    The sky was grey and dismal,
    Like everything was all wrong,
    Apart from your eyes like crystals.

    You spoke to me for the first time,
    And I felt the butterflies flutter,
    Like I knew I needed you real bad,
    Your hair smelt like cocoa butter...

    All I remember is that this love began,
    On a Thursday in a classroom,
    Those words you said melted my heart,
    It lead me away from the gloom.
    Your reckless love...

    Before I know it we're sat in a cafe,
    Drinking tea like a old married couple,
    That's when I realized the truth,
    What could follow from that cuddle.

    Next thing I know the rumors began
    Apparently he wasn't mine to take,
    The popular girls clenched onto him,
    Slithering onto him like a poisonous snake.

    All I remember is that this love began,
    On a Thursday in a classroom,
    Those words you said melted my heart,
    It lead me away from the gloom.
    Your reckless love...

    So now as I sit here,
    Regretting my entire life,
    It etches away my inner soul
    Turning everything back to that grey sky.

    One day you'll think of me I know,
    That girl you wasted a week on,
    I'll thing about you too you see,
    My first and last reckless love...

    Here's my entry for round 1, hope it makes sense. It's about a love that took place long ago. :) It's probably the largest and most descriptive words I've used in a song.

    Like embers
    verse 1
    silence as embers are visible from the fire
    they turn into sparks that turn into flames
    silence turns to a word of conversation
    bestowed that the fact that the place
    is in the vicinity of the square where the band plays
    nodding heads and turning backs
    nothing so but the common reactions
    but words were something he lacked

    chorus
    but on that night he was alright
    talked for a moment with laughter
    that haunted his sweet little mind
    was falling in love with me something he was after?
    and it didn't take much time
    dancing in ballgowns and encountering new faces
    all of that time I was his and he was mine
    glowing with light and free of being woebegone
    like an ember that sparks a flame in the night

    verse 2
    it was winter and time was flying
    heavily fallen the snow like an avalanche
    rushing from hill to the homeland
    he knocked on my window, perched on a branch
    I opened it up to my surprise
    he was taking his sweet time crawling in
    he got down on one knee and asked a question
    and that's when it all began

    chorus
    oh, that one night he was alright
    talked for a moment with laughter
    that haunted his sweet little mind
    was falling in love with me something he was after?
    and it didn't take much time
    dancing in ballgowns and encountering new faces
    all of that time I was his and he was mine
    glowing with light and free of being woebegone
    like an ember that sparks a flame in the night

    verse 3
    you asked my father permission
    surprisingly he accepted such course
    I was happy to pick out a wedding dress
    you wore a suit that made my smile forced
    it was something so pressured
    and I had a trembling tongue
    I was twisted, dazed, and wonderstruck
    all because you came along

    chorus
    oh, that one night he was alright
    talked for a moment with laughter
    that haunted his sweet little mind
    falling in love with me was something he was after
    and it didn't take much time
    dancing in ballgowns and encountering new faces
    all of that time I was his and he was mine
    glowing with light and free of being woebegone
    like an ember that sparks a flame in the night

    outro
    all because of the ball we were married the next day
    I said yes and it all occurred to me I needed to live this way
    true love came and lingered and it stayed forever
    and always, for a lifetime strong

    {THIRD OF MAY}
    I must admit that with you I was reluctant
    To give into your smile and glowing charm.
    All I've had so far are broken relationships
    But you gave me hope and for the first time I loved.

    All I have seen are couples fall out and hurt
    And the ones we'd love the most may just leave.
    But you came in and showed me a new perspective
    I used to be looking back but now I'm looking at you.

    I'll always remember when I saw you that first day.
    The time was quarter to nine and the third of May.
    You looked at me sitting there in the dinner booth
    Walked over, fell over and chipped a tooth.
    We both laughed until we cried then said our goodbyes,
    Little did I know I'd be loving you until the end of time.


    The following week you took me to the corner park.
    We sat eating chocolate watching the sun go down.
    It started raining and we hid under the oak tree
    I was taken by surprise when you first kissed me.

    You always remembered how I told you my past
    And how I thought that in reality love never lasts.
    But you said that fairy tales can in fact come true
    Your eyes sparkled in the moonlight - of course you knew
    That we would always be laughing, never say goodbye
    And that you'd be loving me until the end of time.


    There was that dark night where it almost ended
    At least that's what I thought - but you had other plans.
    You said you'd never leave me, you couldn't not ever
    Because our love was meant for forever.

    So when we're sitting watching the clouds go by
    83 and dreaming that we could touch the sky
    I'll remember that one day when our feet leave the ground
    And one of us may or may not be around.
    We'll forever be smiling, even after goodbye
    And we'll always be loving until the end of time.




    Stay Fearlessly Beautiful,

    TaylorRose xx

    This is my entry for Round One.


    10/9/12
    I’ve Given Up On Dreams

    There is no one that bathes in perfection-
    Well, I thought that once...
    'Til you showed up at my front door.
    And darling, you're quite the exception.

    I've given up on dreams.
    I might as well not sleep-
    You're perfect for me;
    You're all I'll ever need.
    I've given up on dreams.

    We're taught to wish for a fairytale happily ever after.
    Well, all of that was shattered,
    When you grabbed my hand,
    And turned my life upside-down.
    And, I kinda like that plan. 

    It's plain to see-
    That you're better than any dream.

    So, I've given up on dreams.
    After falling so fast, I'm now floating in ecstasy.
    Without you by my side, I can barely breathe.
    I'm lucky I don't fall apart at the seams.
    I've given up on dreams.

    And darling, I'm going crazy!
    Don't you ever leave!
    Your touch fulfills my every need...
    What do I need of dreams?
    You're all I'll ever need. 
    I've given up on dreams.

    There is no one that bathes in perfection-
    Well, I thought that once...
    'Til you showed up at my front door.
    And darling, you're quite the exception.
