"sometimes I dream"

sometimes I dream at night
you're holding me so close
in a way I've always longed to be held
so tight that sometimes it hurts
but isn't that the way love is anyway?
smile through the pain and pretend your heart's not aching

and sometimes I dream
you're telling me things you've never told anyone
trusting me with your secrets and knowing I won't tell
i wish you were here with me
and in a way I don't
because in having you here there are no guesses left

when you're here
in reality I can't pretend you're mine
can't pretend we're something more than friends
but other times
when I'm alone in a place no one knows
sometimes I can still dream
