Number Two

Poem By Jeanette Matthews

I have been number two that I can't take this any more
You don't love me because if you did there would be no one before
I'm too exclusive to come second in your life
If I have to wait on love then I should wait on being a wife
Quit saying that you are through with her because I know its untrue
You might as well gone admit to loving her as much as she love you
In your heart I know that I have a place
But in my heart along with you there are too many empty spaces
I never wanted it to go this far I really didn't mean for it too
But I rather leave you than cause her pain when she's the one that really loves you
I love you too don't me wrong
But what I have realize is that its her love thats strong
I enjoy you while I could because I knew it wasn't going to last
So I guess its a farewell to you my friend so now let the past be the past
I just can't be a number two
Because I love myself more than I LOVE YOU

All we knew was that he was on the run

Lie To Me

This time I am asking you to lie
Because what you are saying can't be the truth, your just saying it to make me cry
Lie to me to make me feel they way that you made me feel before
Remember when you use to look me in my eyes and you would say I love you more

You Left This World

You left this world and I didn't share a tear
I don't know why I didn't feel pain but I felt fear
I felt as if you belonged where you were
And God arms surrounded by nothing but love and care

I Am Apart Of History

I am apart of history
History lies deep down inside of me
I am like Martin Luther King
Just like him I'm going to let freedom ring

Afraid Of You Or In Love With You

I think that I'm more afraid of you than in love with you
I use to be happy and impressed by the thing you would do
Now I fear of you snapping out
My mother warned me, she told me what getting to involved was about
