High (Song Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]
I’m not that high
I’m not that cut and dry
But I don’t like grey
That’s all I wanted to say

[Chorus]
I know that everything you are
Is what I need
And everything you are
Is what I dreamed
So every time you say that you love me
I fall a little deeper in love, it’s true
It’s true, I fall a little deeper in love with you

[Verse 2]
You look so high
Your smile could reach the sky
You don’t like grey
That’s all you needed to say

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
We’re going around in circles every day
But it doesn’t have to be this way
If all we want to do is run and play
Then we should, then we should

I keep looking into your eyes and seeing the sky
I keep looking into your eyes and wanting to fly
I keep looking into your eyes and feeling so high
I keep looking into your eyes and, baby, I’m high

[Chorus]

[Bridge 2]
You make me so high
You make me so high
I’ve learned how to fly
I’ve learned how to fly

[Chorus]
I know that everything you are
Is what I need
And everything you are
Is what I dreamed
So every time you say that you love me
I fall a little deeper in love, it’s true

I think I’m gonna stay in love with you

Fucked Up (Song Lyrics + Song)

You kinda love me in a fucked-up way
The way you love me I could never stay
I sorta knew that it would go this way
I never really thought you would stay

I’m just a puppet in your master plan
Had me eating out the palm of your hand
I even wanted to be your man
Nobody else could ever understand

You kinda left me in this fucked-up state
Took for granted everything I gave
If it meant something I cannot say
Our love was always doomed for the grave

You kinda want me in this fucked-up way
Even though you have no plans to stay
It’s kinda crazy how it goes this way
You love so much and then it fades away

It’s kinda funny how it goes this way
You love so much and then they never stay
You love so much and then they never stay
You love so much and then they go away

I loved you so much but you did not stay
I loved you so much but you went away
I love you so much but you would not stay
You broke my heart when you left that day

Nobody else should ever feel this pain
Nobody else should ever feel such pain

This song went from a very upbeat sounding song to more of a slow song with only four chords repeating, which reiterates the cycle of loss. It’s interesting to try writing something out of your comfort zone. Sometimes trying a different artistic medium opens your mind up to higher creative endeavors. If you can: try to do something totally different with your next piece. Thanks for reading and listening!

Galaxies Across A Galaxy

By Benjamin Grossman & Ace

I am the birth of the Universe
Spiraling through my soul
I am a galaxy becoming whole
Beyond this life and evermore

A solar system of wombs
A star creating many homes
A heartland that eternally ascends
An emotion that will forever cleanse

The Universe echoing deeply in our veins
Our bodies free of restrains
Breaking through intrinsic chains
Becoming a galaxy’s avenue of many lanes

I am the birth of the Universe
All that flows and spins
A story with no beginning or end

I am a galaxy within
An internal grin
A destiny to begin

Another duet with the fantastic Ace! Make sure you check out her blog Fearless Free Soul.

Sweet Ink

By Benjamin Grossman & Bree Leto

There’s no denying the sweetness
When we share the body
Of a poem

Your words make my ink blush
Our fingers stroking the same lines
A teasing exchange of sugared phrases
Awakening our entwined imaginations

Every time we devour
Each other’s souls
Savoring new flavors
Created from our intimate flow

When we write like this
I need more than just letters
There’s something brewing beyond this sweet ink

Let’s put down these pens
Write on our bodies instead

Please, make sure you check out her blog by visiting Secret Thoughts Within. I can’t say enough good things about her as poet and a person. Her writing is intelligent, clever, funny, diverse, thoughtful, and passionate. A mixture of depth and pure beauty. Also, she can read a poem like no other. Truly her talent flies off the page and stays with you!

Love’s Layers

By Benjamin Grossman & Ace

The mirror of my soul dissolves my flaws
While my heart’s vibration draws
Its inner handwriting breaks fear’s barricade
And together we dive deep into love’s cascade

A graceful night above
Our harmony raising the frequency
Auras ascend, we fly like a dove
On the light of constellations, soaring peacefully

Toward the bloom of time
This journey is an eternal climb
The roots of emotions
Are the bravest oceans

A magical connection
The creation of love’s reflection
We are one, an immortal team
Spinning through this life’s infinite dream
