He's so close now but he's locked away,

I'm sick of the games life likes to play.

So close but yet so far,

Too far for something good to start.

I stay awake to think why

Two kids like us should even try.

It hurts to be together alone,

A scar-less pain that no one knows,

So different and so lost,

How much time will the cure cost?

Tucked away my heart beats muffled,

Every thought damp and troubled.

It's hard to live with a heart that screams

To be with he who dwells in dreams.

I stay awake to think of why

Two kids like us should even try.

It is treacherous and steep I know

But in the end we'll have something to show:

Broken hearts and resolute tears

Or a love to grow past all our fears.

Trying is all we can do now

And now it's time to allow

Hearts to do the thinking

For our hearts know what we're feeling.

I fall asleep and I know why

The two of us should try.

Words cannot explain the thoughts that speak

When my guard is down and my mind is weak.

Hurt is welcome, no longer feared

Let it in, let it hover dear.

No matter the outcome or ending

There won't be lies or pretending

That it was okay to just give up

On what could have been us.

After sacrifice and risk

Two wanderers will kiss

And seal a fate they won't even know,

They will have that to show.

I fall asleep and I know why

The two of us have to try.

I will sleep tonight and dream

Of two young lovers with hearts that scream

To be together just to see

The magic in all that they could be.
