(if i wrote a country song)

by lauren atkinson


If it was easy enough for me to spout it out
while I was drunk
i'll find a way while sober to say it again
but this time say exactly what I mean.

I have a hard time feeling fear without
writing it off as being weak
and you've got a funny way of giving compliments:
you're kind of like a tease

i live for the chase
even when i'm in the clear
running after something
even when it's already here
you're safe and
you're mine
(i sometimes make it hard but know
it's unintentionally
because you're always
ever
everything to me)
