You’re My Everything

Desperately Seeking SlenderThe following is a song that was written for my ex-husband about 12 years ago. The song was a celebration of our three-year anniversary and preformed by one of our dearest friends at a gathering we host in San Francisco, California.

I’m posting the song to go along with a recent blog entry “The Finality of Death”

Grief is not an emotional I deal well with. Death is so final. When someone is gone, all we have left are precious memories of the moments we shared together in  life. This song, is a testimony to that memory, those moments, and a time when our life was everything I wanted it to be and more.

In Memory of Jason Williams April 30, 1972 – October 22, 2018

I know that when you got to heaven, a cowboy in a black Stetson hat was there to welcome you. Because, I know my father saw you as his son. I hope that you and my Dad are having glorious conversations up there. Now that the struggles you dealt with are gone, I know the man I loved so dearly is up there looking out for me.

 

YOU’RE MY EVERYTHING

Intro:

C, Dm7, C, F, C, F, Dm7, G7

C, Dm7, C, F, C, F, Dm7, G7


C                           Dm7                     C                                F

When I heard the phone ring and her voice on the other end

C                           F                  Dm7                         G7

I gave a smile and greeted her, because she’s my best friend

F            C                F                          C

She said Hello Master there’s something I have to say

F                             C                                      Dm7           G7

And I know that it might change things, but I must tell you anyway

 

C                           Dm7                     C                                F

And she said Master something’s happening, with the way I feel inside,

C                           F                  Dm7                         G7

And though I’m scared to tell you, it’s something I can’t hide.

F            C                F                          C

And I said get yourself together, take a breath and go real slow

F                             C                                      Dm7           G7

Because you can’t tell me anything, I don’t already know…

C                           Dm7                     C                                F

She cried, Master I’ve been thinking, and I don’t know what to do,

C                           F                  Dm7                         G7

I’ve got this feeling deep inside, that I can’t explain to you.

F            C                F                          C

You know that you’re my Hero, when I’m with you I feel saved,

F                             C                                      Dm7           G7

But the thing that’s so incredible is how you make me more a slave!


Chorus:

F                         Dm7       G7         Gsus  G7

I love you doesn’t justify the way I feel inside

F                             Dm7               G7

This burning, yearning, turning need to be right by your side

F                             Dm7                     G7

I’m yours just doesn’t quite explain, the way I feel it true

F                             Dm7                     G7

This twisting, twirling, swirling need, to say to you

G7                      C

You’re my everything.


C                      Dm7                C                      F

The next time I saw her, once more I had to smile

C                                   F              Dm7                         G7

Things had changed so very fast, in such a little while.

F            C                F                          C

She said, Hello Master, I’m so glad that you are here

F               C             Dm7                        G7

Will you let me please you? Will you allow me near?

C                  Dm7                C                              F

She said I just want to serve you, in the ways you will allow,

C                      F          Dm7                    G7

And I’ll fight the urge to beg you just to take me now.

F                       C                F                          C

I said just get yourself together, take a breath and go real slow.

F                         C                 Dm7                        G7

But you can’t tell me anything, that I don’t already know…

C                      Dm7                C                      F

And she cried, Master I’ve been waiting, and I don’t know what to say,

C                      F          Dm7                    G7

Even if you will not take me, I know that I’m your slave.

F                       C                F                          C

I’ll take just what you give me, and never ask for more…

F                         C                 Dm7                        G7

But though you may not take me, of this one thing I’m sure.


Chorus:

F                         Dm7       G7         Gsus  G7

I love you doesn’t justify the way I feel inside

F                             Dm7               G7

This burning, yearning, turning need to be right by your side

F                             Dm7                     G7

I’m yours just doesn’t quite explain, the way I feel it true

F                             Dm7                     G7

This twisting, twirling, swirling need, to say to you

G7                      C

You’re my everything.


C                   Dm7                     C                              F

As she unpacked her suit case, I saw the tears swell in her eyes

C                F                  Dm7                    G7

I did not know if I loved her, but I swore that I would try

F                C                F              C

She said, Help me Master, I’m feeling very scared

F                         C                 Dm7                        G7

Of what the future holds for us, and how much of me I’ve shared.

C                   Dm7                     C                              F

I don’t know if can make it, and be the girl I need to be

C                          F               Dm7                     G7

To earn the right to wear your collar, and to feel your love for me

F                C                          F                   C

I told her get yourself together, take a breath and go real slow.

F                         C                 Dm7                        G7

But you can’t tell me anything, that I don’t already know…

C              Dm7                     C                            F

And she cried, Master this is frightening, and I don’t know what to say,

C                  F                     Dm7                    G7

What if you can’t love me back, or send me far away?

F                C                          F               C

I don’t think I can take it, to have things fall apart again,

F                         C                        Dm7                        G7

Because I won’t just lose my Owner, I’m risking my best friend.


Chorus:

F                         Dm7       G7         Gsus  G7

I love you doesn’t justify the way I feel inside

F                             Dm7               G7

I’m yours just doesn’t quite explain, the way I feel it true

F                             Dm7                     G7

This twisting, twirling, swirling need, to say to you

G7                      C

You’re my everything.


C                      Dm7                    C                              F

And as she begged my collar, I knew this would never end

C                  F                     Dm7                    G7

And I swore an oath that this girl of mine would be more than just a friend

F                C                          F               C

I said, girl I’ve been thinking, and there’s something I have to say.

F                         C                        Dm7                        G7

You’re different from the other girls in so very many ways.

C                      Dm7                  C                              F

I can feel your true devotion and the love you can’t disguise

C                  F                     Dm7                    G7

But your fears are all for nothing, and you need to realize

F                C                          F               C

That you are my true kajira and I hold you in my heart

F                         C                    Dm7           G7

And now you wear my collar, we will never be apart

C         Dm7                    C                      F

You are mine forever, and I hope that you can see

C                     F                     Dm7              G7

That this steel around you neck tells you, that you now belong to me

F                C                          F               C

She smiled thank you Master, I’m so glad we took it slow,

F                         C                    Dm7           G7

But you didn’t tell me anything that I didn’t already know.
