    [The Way You Look At Me]

    I don't think I can keep on talking about War and Peace without making you all fall asleep. So I'll save all my harangue for my class. I wake up this morning with snuggling thoughts of J. The image of him instantly lifts me into another world, a serene realm of bliss and love which it is worth living for. A song for J:



    No one ever saw me like you do
    All the things that I could add up to
    I never knew just what a smile was worth
    But your eyes say everything without a single word

    Coz there's something in the way you look at me
    It's as if my heart knows you're the missing piece
    You make me believe that there's notheing in this world I can't be
    I'd never know what you see
    But there's something in the way you look at me

    If I could freeze the moment in my mind
    Be the second that you touch your lips to mine
    I'd like to stop the clock make time stand still
    Coz baby this is just the way I always wanna feel

    Coz there's something in the way you look at me
    It's as if my heart knows you're the missing piece
    You make me believe that there's notheing in this world I can't be
    I'd never know what you see
    But there's something in the way you look at me

    I don't know how or why
    I feel different in your eyes
    All I know is that it happens everytime

    Coz there's something in the way you look at me
    It's as if my heart knows you're the missing piece
    You make me believe that there's nothing in this world I can't be
    I'd never know what you see
    But there's something in the way you look at me

    The way you look at me

    That's so sweet Greg. Honestly I've never been treated like how J has treated me.

    We're going out tonight. :)
