Relate

Relate to me.
I beg, just find a way.
I speak to you
And tell you
But you can't seem to
Relate...

I've broken down walls,
And drowned in self-created streams.
You're shielded up tight
Never shed a tear, it seems.

I've stared you in the face
And looked you in the eye
I've seen you look back.
Where is that connection?
That glance that proves to me as true
That if I were to mention
Anything to you,

You'd nod your head
And understand.
There'd be no confusion in
Your eyes.
I wouldn't feel so distant
Nor strange.

Out of everyone in the
Universe,
Of all the people
It is you.
That I want to be able to speak to
And know you
Relate.
You are to me, so special,
The one person in my eyes.

Yet, why is it that
We don't seem
To
Relate?
