How Things Work

If I just didn't see you
Or laugh or wept for you
Would my life be still the same?
Would I still believe in fate
That each of us is said to have?

I've thought of happy endings,
But why don't they exist?
I've thought of better fantasies
And it hurts my heart to know,
That there's no such thing like it…

Why can't I just erase it from my head?
Why can't I realize
We're not meant for each other?
Now, I'm in thought
Of what could've be…

And now, I'm thinking
Of how happy the scenes
We've together shared in my dreams,
But if each of us is destined to be happy,
Why am I crying?

Why does love have to stay
For us to both grasp?
But then it moves so fast
So we can't just embrace and keep it…
Why does fate move away from us?

Our love is that bittersweet
It swiftly flies even when we're asleep
Things turn out the way
We don't expect them to
This is how things work for me and you…
