Tell Me Something Different

And are you the beauty that I want?
It’s not that I am of one mind
It’s only that I am when looking at you
As soon as you think I’m hopelessly serious
An inappropriate smile during a sermon
And you know it’s the real me thinking of you

It seems that everything about you says
Run away, another human who believes too much
I wonder if you are what I know to be my fears
I want to believe how you open tombs with your eyes
The way you speak is not of this earth
Can you can take the place of pain and tears

I know that my stare has moved on past this life
But your attention is really mine in my sight
The sun seeks the same thing over the hill
But why does it always return to me?
Maybe I’m the one who rises and sets
Who’s to say but you, please tell me if you will
