For Love Is Merely a State of Grace

I'm walking fast through the traffic lights

She's late. The meeting's important. It's a new customer.

Busy streets and busy lives

She's busy. He's busy. Same. They talk. He's the customer.

And all we know is touch and go

An accidental brushing of hands. He's handsome.

We are alone with our changing minds

They don't know what to say. But it's just business. (easy)

We fall in love 'till it hurts or bleeds or fades in time

It's not just business anymore. She aches from (with) love.

And I never saw you coming

She can't believe she fell in love. She doesn't mind.

And I'll never be the same

She's changed. He's changed. They changed each other. They love. Sweet, powerful love.

You come around and the armor falls

He's here. She smiles genuinely for the first time that day.

Pierce the room like a cannon boom

Boom. Thud. Her heart pounds. He's handsome.

Now all we know is don't let go

They've had a fight. She cries. But he takes her hands and says he'll never leave her.

We are alone, just you and me

They talk, smile, laugh. No one's there to interrupt.

Up in your room and our slates are clean

They've started again as friends.

Just twin fire signs

But there's still the fiery passion in their hearts for their hungry love.

Four blue eyes

Stare.

So you were never a saint

He isn't the clean cut boy she thought he was.

And I've loved in shades of wrong

But she's done wrongs too. She won't judge.

We learn to live with the pain

They do it all together. Them against the world.

Mosaic broken hearts

Love is cut up, glassy. Dotted with flaws and hurt.

But this love is brave and wild

But they don't care. Love is all she, he, they have. They're brave.

And I never saw you coming

She loves. Unexpected.

And I'll never be the same

She'll never let go.

This is a state of grace

Graceful. Elegant. Passion.

This is the worthwhile fight

They'll do anything. Stay.

Love is a ruthless game

They know. A girl is trying to break them up. She likes the boy.

Unless you play it good and right

The boy comforts the girl. He won't do anything with the other one.

These are the hands of Fate

She lets it go. She loves.

You're my Achilles Heel

He's her weakness, her strength, her willpower. She can't live without him.

This is the golden age of something good and right and real

It's new. It's better. It's good and right and real.

And I never saw you coming

She gasps. He's on one knee.

And I'll never be the same

That burst of joy, of ecstasy when she finally finds the One.

And I never saw you coming

They kiss at the wedding. She's come a long way. She deserves it.

And I'll never be the same

She knows she's never letting go.

This is a state of grace

Graceful. Elegant. Passion.

This is the worthwhile fight

They'll do anything. Stay.

Love is a ruthless game

She knows what it takes. She's willing.

Unless you play it good and right

Honest. Fire. Honest. Passion. Honest. Love.

A/N: Yes, this was inspired by Taylor Swift's State of Grace. I love that song! :)
