Felt only on my own
Confined to the inner sanctions of my mind, only for me to know.
I walk with you hand in hand
A pretend moonlight stroll down a busy city street, or a long daytime ramble in the woods.
My heart skips a beat as you walk beside me
Your eyes burn through me as you steal a quick glance out of the corner of your eye
We walk alone together until morning
All I see, all I feel, is you and me and nothing of the real world, where my heart is shattered into pieces
I watch as you give your heart away
The words that I heard you secretly profess to me, you now utter in someone elses ear
With all of my heart and soul I know that we are not the forever and forever I see in my mind, or feel in my heart
You only exist in my mind, where all I see is starlight and infinite possibilities with your arms around me
I am jolted awake from my dream
I see that without me your world goes on, you happy and blissful with her, while mine stops turning
I realize that love on my own, without you, does not keep me from the true happiness Id dreamed of only with you
My love is true, so when youre happy I will have already found the joy I thought I d never know without you.
