It wasn't what I expected at 2 am
and it wasn't what I normally do,
but now it's all I want,
Its all I can think of.
The lights in the city, walking the streets, the night time nostalgia.
Walking alone was our moment.
You said I was going too slow,
I didnt want to catch up to letting go.
And as I looked at the ground
I noticed two cracks in the sidewalk
They crossed the pavement aimlessly until they met
In between the buildings and the road.
It seemed like a miracle
How they both found eachother in the same place.
That by chance
By forces bigger than them, they met. Knowing that they both had some rough edges
but they still came together
maybe not perfectly, but they fit
turning them into something bigger than what they were before.
And they held on.
Even through the coldest of nights they couldn't break apart.
Even when others tried to "fix" and "fill" them.
Their path was still visible.
That's how beautiful the chances were.
And as I looked a little harder,
I found us.
We were walking together into the unknown,
The stars photographed every second with their old light
Lighting up the streets with the help of cars and traffic lights.
And I couldn't help but wish on that old light
that maybe these cracks would guide us home,
To our home.
The home we found in each other.

It takes time for someone to fall in love
But whenever I think that it's been a while,
It's like trying to catch a train that's already left
For who knows how long
So I've gotten used to walking
But I avoid the cracks in the sidewalk because
The straight ones look like you
And the crooked ones look like me
And somewhere along the lines of the road we met
And I kept going, but when I looked over,
You took a hard left
Wondering what I did.
My steps slowed down so did my heart
Because my heart was alone and it didn't have anything to catch up to anymore
And when I asked why
You said something poetic
And it must have been about love because I didn't understand it
See my heart just wanted the chance to say I love you
But it couldn't find the words
Because they were hidden in the holes of your flaws
And if I were to connect the freckles on your face
They would say "I Love"
And mine would only spell out

But tears from compassion have changed the world
Sweat is ugly
But the hard work of men and women has changed the world
Feet are ugly
But the steps we take toward helping others have changed the world.
But the music they play that moves the heart has changed the world.
Scars are ugly
But the stories of courage being passed on have changed the world
Wrinkles are ugly
But the wrinkles around kind eyes and smiling lips have changed the world
