My happiness is in my own hands,
So I’ve heard.
And I want to believe it,
That I am my own hero.
But when you’re not with me,
I’m only hanging in here.
In understanding and make excuses,
I try to be tough,
For you, for us,
But my armor’s just not strong enough.
And I wonder,
‘How completely content can you be when you have to want me from a distance?’
I break down every other day,
Wishing you could be with me,
Hoping I haven’t lost you,
Wishing I could pour out my heart as it pines for you.
I never knew how much I love you really
Until I wished I didn’t at all
And yet you wouldn’t get out of my head.
But you’re a man with few words.
You say your words only when it matters most.
So when you said, “I’m here to stay”
That’s all I want to remember.
