If You Know What I Mean

I don’t like to think about it much
You were alive then and I was too
But I was so far away from your mind
I’m trying to forget all the lost time

Our love is never small or wasted words
I never knew how hard staying calm could be
I can’t stop the visions I have about your past
I wanted to tell you in case you never asked

You look so serious, your cheeks hold fast
to the way you live, quieting things down
The clothes you wear, sleeves on sleeves
Is just the cold inside you I want to ease

If you don’t know what I mean
it doesn’t matter, it’s what I feel
I’m not trying to be so obvious
My eyes know how to be real

You weren’t the one I thought would happen
How many times did I walk past a beautiful door
Never opening, only noticing mystery on the lock
Did you say “that’s life” to an authentic knock?

From one kiss we made a story to write
I came from what I finally rejected,
but I know it well from living inside of it
Now I’m fulfilled by you, a secret I'll admit

There’s a life force sleeping, it began again
In memory of the times I was alone
and needed a friend like you in my sight
It’s not hard to agree if you share the night

If you don’t know what I mean
it doesn’t matter, it’s what I feel
I’m not trying to be so obvious
My eyes know how to be real
