new love filled my lungs with a raw breath of affection
i tucked you in the folds of my heart’s warm confection
i chose to lose my doubts and give my all to you
i turned myself away from all that i’ve been through.
and those who once made a mark at the crux of my soul
no longer leave cracks in the sections of my whole
and all those that i have claimed to love before
no longer leave me yearning more.
for you, i’ll view the world anew
for you, i’ll set my soul alight,
for you, i’ll pledge, i’ll pledge to do
all i’ve sworn to you tonight.
