You Cut Through The Noise

Do you hear me over the sound of your beating heart?

Do you see me when the stars in your eyes are shining so brightly?

Do you think of me throughout the day?

No? That's fine.

I just needed you to know that I love you.

That you cut through all the noise in my life, you cut through the voices in my head, you cut through the sounds that bother me day to day.

I just needed you to know that I love you.

That you make me smile more than anyone ever has, you make me feel important and worth it, you make me feel human again.

I just needed you to know that I love you.

That you saved me, you picked up the gun and fought off my demons when I was too weak, you took the paints and made my drab grey world a colourful masterpiece.

I just needed you to know that I love you.

That I will continue to love you even though it kills me, that I will continue to stand by you even when I'm tired and my legs are weak, that I will carry you when you fall.

I just needed you to know that I love you.

I'll just never tell you.

I just needed you to know that I love you.

These are just the words that will never leave my lips.
