We say we sleep better together,

But really we're never alone.

With thoughts drifting through our windows,

And texts lighting up our phones.

Romance in passing moments

Disguised as just being friends,

You say I can hold my own chain,

But then you pull at the ends.

I swear I need independence,

But my feelings are tangled with you

In this world of delicate balance,

We kiss and then we're through.
