Belated Blush

September 24, 2009

Come speak to me

Like we've known each other forever

It's all been wasted time till now

But don't forget, we have tomorrow

We can make up for all the time

We were tricked into ignorance

I'll say,

"Where have you been all my life?"

You'll say,

"Coming up with a good punch line"

I'm making new rules for love at first sight

Because you can't be sure of what you see

Till you're bent on your knees from the light

Till your eyes have been exposed to what's real

You are accustomed to seeing through a hazy blur

And the only way home now is to swerve

I'll say,

"Where have you been for so long?"

You'll say,

"Making sure what I'm seeing isn't wrong"
