You numb the pain
I want you to know that I’m not the same
You changed me, in a good way
Let me know that you want me to stay
Because I’m happy with you
And I hope you’re happy too
I want to grow old with you
And never be feeling blue
I still remember all the good times we had together, just me and you, always down for whatever.
You know me the way no one else does, god that’s cool, c’mon let’s not make a fuss
You’re greater than great, You’re better than best, baby girl I believe you can do anything, unlike the rest, let’s go on more dates, let’s enjoy what we have, because from what I’ve seen the spark never lasts
All I need is you
All I want is you
I will always be here for you
Because I know, you’re here for me too
And all I need is
You understand the way I feel by just staring at me
You understand the pain I feel by just thinking of me
You see all the tears I shed, It’s like I’m filling up the sea
I have all that negativity, but when I see you I’m filled with glee
All the pain is gone and now, I’m a new me
I can tell how happy you are to see me full of energy and relieved
Stress-free and full of positivity
You made me like that, that’s a fact
So give yourself some credit for the way that I act
I defend, but when you’re at your lowest, I’ll attack, yea, there’s no doubt about that
I need you to know that you’re my world
I need you to know that you’re my girl
You’re that somebody I talk about whenever I say, all I need is
I understand that you’ve been through some tough times
I understand that you’ve been through a lot
I understand that you need some time to heal
But guess what, you got me now and I’ll seal the pain you feel
I can be the hero that you need to succeed
I can be the one that you need to proceed
We were two souls that became one, now it’s all good so let’s go and have some fun
You’re the girl of my dreams, me and you make a team
Let’s not worry about our dreams staying dreams
Because from what’s been happening, they’ve all been coming, true it seems
Me and you together, that’s a dream come true
Keeping you happy, that’s a dream come true
You loving me, that’s a dream come true
You in my life, is the best dream come true
Sol Garcia, born with a book in her hand, is the first Top Reader for this school year. During the summer, she read a total of 10 chapter books. Now that the school year has begun, she has to find a balance between schoolwork and reading for herself.
The highest word count Garcia has read in an academic year is 5 million words. She earned the Top District Reader award during her freshman and sophomore year.
The longest book Garcia has read is over a thousand pages with high-level vocabulary. She has been a member of book clubs and other school organizations.
One of her favorite books is “Falling Into Place”, because it shows that “No matter how dark life can get, you always find that people care about you, and it is inspiring”, as Garcia said.
Garcia said, “Reading is important because you learn the knowledge you can get in the book and [you can] find peace and comfort.”
