PASSIONATELY FROM THE SIDELINES
I see you watch him
with that dull spark in your eyes.
There's this heaviness in my gut
I wonder if you will ever realise.
I think it's beyond you,
Well beyond the boundaries of us;
But dreams betray me every now and then
I wonder if it ever keeps you up
I wipe the blood off your face,
Avert my eyes from the bruises
And I'll do it again and again
Maybe you'll tell me one of these days.
And maybe you will not
Maybe there's nothing to say
Because we must all give a bit of ourselves
In love, and this is the price you chose to pay.
There are already cracks in your smile
It will break from the weight of a feather
But that's why I'm here, aren't I?
To hold those pieces together.
