Lyrics

I’d always been at war,
With the sirens of mediocrity
My poor mind in a fog,
Thick with duality
My eyes defocused,
My everything on hold
The pieces wouldn’t fit,
My story left untold
Then fate stepped in,
With a strange design
When your world came crashing,
Smack into mine
Just took one glance,
Over in your direction
My moment had come,
To flirt with perfection

You are a masterpiece
Paint your image on a canvas
You are a masterpiece
Carve your face in stone
You are a masterpiece
Write a love song about you
You are a masterpiece
The one who inspires me
You are a masterpiece

I own a collection
Of mistakes made regrettably
More than a few were
Displayed rather publicly
While others might pocket,
A paycheck each week
Hard working like a-holic,
All I get is critique
The eyes of the world,
Wont always pass me by
No more starving artist
Now you’re by my side
After so many endings,
Now I’ve got a start
When you smile at me,
Like a work of art

You are a masterpiece
Paint your image on a canvas
You are a masterpiece
Carve your face in stone
You are a masterpiece
Write a love song about you
You are a masterpiece
The one who inspires me
You are a masterpiece

An artist would paint your image on a canvas
Or maybe carve your face in stone
As smoothly as you’d flow from a poet’s pen
I take your hand, bring you close
You are the one for me
Yeah, you are the one for me

To devote a lifetime,
Be the master of a skill
Takes a sacrifice,
That’ll test your will
I’m working on my craft,
With all I’ve got
I’m loving you
A work of art

You are a masterpiece
Paint your image on a canvas
You are a masterpiece
Carve your face in stone
You are a masterpiece
Write a love song about you
You are a masterpiece
The one who inspires me
You are a masterpiece
