Hey Beautiful Girl

I wrote this just now. I couldn’t sleep because I didn’t feel well but I am super glad now because being awake gave me time to do this. This is dedicated to so many people. I have been struggling with grief recently partially from loss and also from having some friends go through some tough times. This is for everybody. Girls and the girl inside.

[VERSE 1]

I know you’re out there somewhere

You might feel all alone

Far too far from home

But I am here.

I’m so far away

Wanna run to you in haste

I’ll be your ear.

Whisper if you must

I’ll return your trust

…I’m looking in a mirror

[CHORUS]

Hey Beautiful Girl

I wanna hold you ‘till it’s better

Lift you up in love

Wish I could ask the pain to pass

Raise you up above

With my hand under your heart

And my heart beside your hand

I’ll hold you in my arms

…And be your friend.

[VERSE 2]

In case you ever wonder

You’re good enough for me

All I could wish to be

Is just like you.

I love the way you fall

‘Cause your stronger from it all

You cannot lose.

It’s okay to cry

But just remember why

I wrote a song about you.

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]

Please don’t ever forget (ever forget)

Please dont ever neglect (ever neglect, ever neglect)

The one who taught me respect.

[FINAL CHORUS]

Hey Beautiful Girl

I wanna hold you ‘till it’s better

Lift you up in love

Wish I could ask the pain to pass

Raise you up above

With my hand under your heart

And my heart beside your hand

I’ll hold you in my arms

…Until the end.

Poem/Song: Won’t you be my friend?

Won’t you be my friend?

I met so many cool people at a potluck party last night! They inspired me! Life inspires me! I started singing this in my kitchen and then wrote and recorded it all in the span of about half an hour! Wham bam – boy am I fast today!

CAPO 3

C G

I just think that you’re so cool

Em G

but I don’t even know you

C G

I just like things you’re into

Em G

and you care the way I do

 

Em

you’re so sweet

G

and you’re so kind

Em

I would love

G

to see you all the time

 

Em

its clear you care

G

your love is there

Em

for every creature

G

 

Em

it’s there in the

G

clothes you wear

 

Em

and the things you

G

give your time to

 

Em G

may this song remind you

 

(repeat C G Em G)

I just think that you’re so cool

but I don’t even know you

I just like things you’re into

and you care the way I do

won’t you be my friend?

a relationship, a poem

what is a relationship?

a hand to hold?

a face to know?

someone to be there?

with whom to grow old?

maybe it’s simplier,

a friend and pal,

or less committed,

a friend just for now.

Perhaps it’s the one you can’t live without

the person that drives you to get up and go out.

It could be the one you can never ignore,

for some it’s the person who lives just next door.

Some travel miles, across oceans and seas.

Some just wait patiently, while some like to tease.

When looking for love it’s important to say:

today is your moment, forget yesterday.


Dear Future Best Friend,

Dear Future Best Friend,

I’ve had many friends in my lifetime but i’ve yet to have one i’d call my very best friend. I know you will have many of the qualities I love so much about my other friends and relationships. I’m going to tell you some of the things about us I am looking forward to.

We will have many things in common that we can share and talk about. We will do things together. When I am excited about something you will listen and when you are excited you will share. We will talk on the phone and hang out in person. We will spend time at each others houses and know each others parents. It won’t be a big deal if I come over unannounced or crash at your place. You will be welcome at mine. When we have sleepovers there will be cuddles, tickle-fights and maybe even the occasional back massage. We’ll get changed in front of each other without it being weird. We will wear each others clothes and not worry about returning them. There will be frequent hugs and unconditional love. If I upset you, you will tell me and accept my apology when I say sorry, because i’ll mean it. We’ll send each other text messages and sometimes stay up talking until we fall asleep. You’ll have your own hobbies and interests that are different from mine. We will support each other, you will come see my shows and will actually watch/listen to/read the books, songs, videos and movies I recommend. You will show me the books/movies/songs/videos you like. You will invite me places and will try to come (when it is possible) to the places I invite you to. If either of us wins a trip there will be no question as to who the other is taking. If we’re ever at a party and things get awkward i’ll come talk to you and that will be okay. We’ll go on adventures and try new things together. We will have time apart because sometimes I need to be alone, and that will be okay. If I need you it won’t matter how late it is or what we have to do tomorrow. You’ll laugh at my jokes and make funny remarks of your own. You will appreciate a good pun. We’ll watch movies together and talk about them after. Sometimes we will have matching articles of clothing. You’ll tell me about your life and listen to the interesting things that happen to me. You’ll make fun of me and i’ll make fun of you and then we’ll laugh at each other and ourselves, together. You’ll be honest with me without worrying about hurting my feelings. We will treat each other the same when we are sober and intoxicated. We will have other friends. They may meet. We will exchange Christmas gifts. We’ll sing and learn dances off the internet and make things together. If you hear people saying mean things about me you’ll stand up for me. We won’t have secrets from each other, but instead with each other. It will be fun.

I realize that either I just haven’t met you yet, or we know each other but we have yet to reach best friend status. Either way, I can’t wait to know you (better) and enjoy your company.

Love,

Jenni
