Unless You Want It That Way

Written By: April Higuera

UNLESS YOU WANT IT THAT WAY
C 2008 April Higuera

I walk down to the hidden river
And I see you here alone
I watch you lie under the water
Where you can dream just for so long
And I want to ask you questions
Just like many times before
I throw in that old rope ladder
You still ignore, and I know what for
You can see the colors in the liquid sky
You can hear your heart beat in the silent tide

Well, I’ll stand here and wait
‘Til you can’t hold your breath any longer
And I’ll keep sayin’ it
‘Til I’m blue in the face
You make your own fate
Don’t have to give up your dreams for anyone
Unless you want it that way

Like your mother, you are a gardener
Perfect roses hide prison walls
I am a flower born in springtime
A bit of hope, a seed you sowed
Can you be yourself in the deep still waves
Can you feel any love that you have saved

I’ll stand here and wait
‘Til you can’t hold your breath any longer
And I’ll keep sayin’ it
‘Til I’m blue in the face
You make your own fate
Don’t have to give up your dreams for anyone
Unless you want it that way

I stand here and criticize you
And you just smile and hug me
You teach me that loving you means
You don’t have to change
Unless you want it that way

Unless You Want It That Way
