You’re Funny

You’re Funny

written by: Jon Ashley Lunsford


Standing on the shore of your soul,
I found myself surrounded by the ocean of your love.
Not knowing the depths of it or how it were to unfold,
I told myself that in time, I could rise above.

I fell so hard, I fell so fast,
but a love like this was sure to last.
Only wanting to get my feet wet…
I find myself now clinging to a safety net.

Why do we spend so much time covering up the gray…
When it’s forever like this that we want to stay?
Laying on our sides, our legs intertwined…
A love like ours is so hard to find.

You’re the big spoon this time…
You know that’s something I don’t mind.
Suddenly the smell of tom ford…
A scent that I’ve grown to adore.
In your arms is where I felt safe…
You holding me tightly, I never wanted to escape.

My love for you is like a boomerang…
Forever in your hands is where I want to remain.
When I look into your deep brown eyes, I see so much pain.
I wonder… Is it me or the one before that’s the most to blame?

what could that possibly mean?
This event was powerful and rare…
Check your journal, you’ll surely find the answer there.

I’d make jokes just to see you smile.
Hearing a laugh from you… Damn, that’s been a while.
This year of talking and laughing is what kept me sane.
Now hearing the words “you’re funny” just doesn’t feel the same.
