Before You

by JOHANNA RIBLER

Before you came along
I was simply lyrics without a song
I was running to get to nowhere
Drowning on my last breath of air
I was lost until you found me
I was a lock but you’re the key
We live in a world made for just you and me
A world where everything fits together perfectly

Before you came along
All my rights became my wrongs
I was falling without a net
I was dry but always wet
I was a bird who couldn’t fly
But now I spread my wings into the deep blue sky
We fit each other perfectly, no questions and no doubts
No matter what comes our way we’ll always work it out

For you fixed up all of my errors
You took away the pain
You gave me back the feeling
Now I’ll never be the same
You unleashed a brand new person
Someone I’m not afraid to hide
I can conquer the impossible
As long as I have you by my side

If Only, If Only

by JOHANNA RIBLER

If only, if only
Broken hearts were fixed with glue
And baby steps were just brand new
the old and weak were strong and young
You kissed with your heart instead of your tongue

If only, if only
Cheating was left to old board games
And hidden talents always found their fame
Tears formed of joy instead of sorrow
Bad days were always left until tomorrow

If only, if only
People saw behind the facade
And miracles weren’t left up to God
Hearts were kept in your chest, not on your sleeve
Those fairytale endings weren’t just for make-belief

If only, if only
Less people sat while more took a stand
Each fallen victim had a helping hand
The hungry were fed and the sick were healed
Every relationship came with a protection shield

If only, if only
The poor were rich and the rich were stable
Clothes were the only things that came with a label
Tragedies were left for the stage
Endings only happened with a turn of a page

If only, if only

Fireflies

by JOHANNA RIBLER

The glow that radiates off your skin
Like fireflies dancing in the nighttime sky
Each one unique, as each one passes by

When the fireflies make their connection
The separate lights make a single reflection
And that beauty steals my breath away
As each passing moment turns into a passing day

The sky filled with millions of stars does not compare
To a brush of your cheek or a lock of your hair
So look me in the eye if I dare to take the chance
Your beauty sends me to heaven by just a single glance

The skin upon your cheek is a black canvas to a dove
And one kiss upon your precious lips I know you’ll fall in love
