Cheap candles burning,
Guitar music playing in the background,
your friends on the couch,
me right here, safe and sound.
It is not perfect,
but it is perfect to me.
the cracks might already be showing,
but this evening is lovely, don’t you agree?
sometimes I can’t look at you,
afraid my heart will beat right out of my chest,
and I might say three little words,
hoping for the best.
I will possibly never tell you,
but I will never forget about this,
just looking at you enjoying yourself,
feeling inside so much bliss.
it is like I am a different person,
a super hero being more than one,
being able to love you like this,
knowing that one day you’ll be gone.
for now though, I am just sitting here,
looking at you, being a fool,
feeling the strongest feeling of all,
trying to be casual and cool.
