This heat plasters and weighs me.
I wish the verdict would come in.
Your innocence scares me,
your touch controls me.
You said I'm everything you want to be.
But I only wish everyone was a little more like you,
and so damned optimistic
(It almost makes me sick).
I wish I knew the charms to make it all go away
Make it just me and you.
No diseases or miles.
So lost in words, I never know what to say.
I feel meaningless without you.
You never asked anything of me.
You blushed when you said what was really on your mind,
And you laughed to make the sadness seem faint.
I would take you away.
I would take it all away.
But in the end, I broke my promise
I couldn't steal you away.
Because so many others needed to hear you say:
I'll never go away
