I don’t know how to act normal when it comes to you
Whatever you would call it
Sometimes I can carry on without screwing things up
Every now and then I can make it seem uncomplicated
Different than it is in my mind
But often I get stuck on the words to say next
When all I want to say is “I give a damn… many damns… and I’m here, always here because… because…”
I can’t say it. I can’t just say it. Not out of nowhere
So what do you say when you can’t help but love someone who doesn’t want to know?
Someone who’s tired of hearing the words…
Someone whose heard it enough to be numb to the sound of it?
I guess I’ll try to slip it in when I say goodnight, maybe drop the “I”
That always makes it sound aimless
You know, to hide the true intentions of what I’m saying…
Because it’s too much, too scary to be completely honest when you’ve been there before
It’s easy to bleed when you let it all out
And when you don’t have a clue of what’s on the other side
But I still remember the beginning, the fact that it was different
I could have a large quantity of lovers if I settled for the usual and unoriginal,
If only I could ever be that tasteless
If I was shallow, maybe
Yet, here I am, ocean deep in emotion
So, how do you deal?
What do you say?
Is it best I say nothing at all?
Leave it all here for now…
