My heart beats for you
I know I love you through and through
But honey I can’t get to you
We get so close, then our time is up
I don’t know why
Our hourglass is always running out of sand
I wanted you to be my man
We climb and climb
We get so close
Till we fall behind
Your life continues
My life goes on
But my heart still cries out for you at night
Every time I close my eyes
I want to feel your love
It is not in the person whom I am laying beside
I am torn
Torn like delicate fabric
I try to piece it back together
But the seems keep coming loose
I can’t get it back to how it was before
Impossible decisions are what I am faced with
I wish it was simple
Like child’s play
I wish we could be together
And it could be okay
Nothing is ever enough
My efforts are as good as dust
Why did I fall in love with someone I can never be with?
The rain pours down on me
I swim in my own melancholy
The hurt I feel reminds that what we almost had was real
But what we want can never be
I’ll sit up on my mountaintop
And love you from a distance
I can’t abandon my life
So Ill take the road of least resistance
I’m always thinking of you
And wishing you were here
If only things were different
I have so much love for you my dear
