I don't get why this is so hard for people to accept

I feel caught between wrong & right

They say it's wrong

But it feels so right

Age is nothing but a number to me

And I don't know why it's any business of theirs

It's you I want even if they think it's wrong

That doesn't change any of this

I can say I don't feel the way I do

But the lie doesn't change how I feel inside

It's a deep secret

Trying hard to get out

But I know I've got to fight it

Because there's no way they'll ever accept it

But I've got to tell someone

So I tell you now I don't care that they don't understand

They want this to be a fantasy

Something so easy they can make go away

But

It's you I want even if they think it's wrong

That doesn't change any of this

I can say I don't feel the way I do

But the lie doesn't change how I feel inside

They say I only see what I want to see

That there's got to be something wrong with me

I can lie to them

But it doesn't change how I feel for you

And I want you to know

It's you I want even if they think it's wrong

That doesn't change any of this

I can say I don't feel the way I do

But the lie doesn't change how I feel inside
