The yearning for you has never stopped
It's just so hard to let go of the thoughts
The thoughts of you
The thoughts of me
The thoughts of new
The thoughts of we
The thoughts of growing old together one day
The thoughts of a love so great that it finds its own way
It surpasses all lust
It can never break an everlasting trust
It's realer than anything you will ever feel
The love that allows you to be silent & still
The passion that runs so deep that it sends tingles down your spine
Yeah that kinda love that stays constantly on your mind
The love that allows you to have your head in the clouds
But yet at the same time it allows you to plant your feet on the ground
A love that helps my heart beat, And it's like the taste on my tongue that's sweet
I would give anything to have that feeling with you again
But you're no longer willing to talk me, not even as a friend
I guess I hold onto the pain as a way to remember you & the mistakes I've made
I just can't stay here because of the memories that won't fade
It just keeps pulling me back & forth
Within myself I have a war
I cannot decide if I want to reach out to you or if it's a waste my time
It's driving me insane because I can't keep you off of my mind
So here I am as a man standing alone in life
It's okay for me to be open, it's okay for me to cry
So now how can I ever love another time?
How can I muster out one more cry?
The truth is that I won't get hurt
I will not allow myself to open up so that I don't get burnt
So am I really going to allow my past to take control of my life?
Am I going to let possible relationships pass me by?
The answer is yes because I can't trust the feeling of love ever....
