i don’t know what you’re thinking.
i just know what i’m hoping.
wouldn’t it be something if they were the same.
i just want to be closer
but you’re holding me
so far away.
it doesn’t have to be a lie
just say you love me for a while.
try it on for size
and if the shoe fits that means
i can make you smile.
i remember the first time i saw you.
you were sitting there trying to hide
but i saw you right away.
on our first date we ate cake from your sisters
and later we carved our initials
at the water plant. i don’t matter now if they fade.
i know some nights you get afraid
of all the wannabe zombie shadows on the shade
and the screech owl calls you dear.
have you ever called that i didn’t come?
have you ever cried i didn’t run?
there’s nothing we have to fear.
