You want the truth…
here it is…
I’ll spit out
I’m in love with you
I don’t know why
But to tell the truth
I fell for you the first night.
i was dancing away my loneliness
twirling in strangers arms
& then i caught a glimpse of you to my right
& tried to turn on my charm.
You called me out from the beginning
but, hey, you still went along…
& clearly, my stragegy was winning-
Because, it wasnt before very long…
I had you dancing to ringtones on a gazeebo
on a frozen night by the lake.
I had you exploring mysteries of our Capital
& sharing your cherished Sweedish coat on the bay…
I had you teaching me how to ice-skate,
okay, you lapped me several times….
& eating picnics in the back of my car,
complete with Sprite sugar-highs…
I had you singing along to the stereo…
I had you taking me on a Road trip
with no destination on the map
& on the way back I may have let it slip…
I had slight feelings for you,
wasn’t ready for more than friends,
& we went into that twilight zone,
where I fell for you like no other hit…
Seriously, just a fingertip on my hand
sends a gush of butterflies flying…
You make me want to kiss you,
when you aren’t even trying…
So you went a way for a couple months
to train for a better position.
I dated someone else, or @ least, tried..
only problem is, I totally lied.
i’m still in love with you.
& now i may just move away
go back out west for my family
But I am, SO really tempted to stay
just long enough to find an understanding.
You know, i’d totally stay if you told me
that you want me too.
you know, i’d totally be your girlfriend.
That’s me telling the truth.
But here it is, honest.
I can’t say this to your face.
Cuz i’m too proud & afraid
that you’d laugh & turn away.
this whole mess is my fault.
I love you more than I should.
& my family wouldn’t approve.
because agnostic isn’t “good”.
So, if you ever find this.
if it ever crosses your mind…
to follow that girl who was crazy
& left you far behind…
Then, come out West to Colorado
Honey, you’d already have won.
I’d never leave your side.
cuz you had me from Day one.
you were twisting your watch on your wrist
said you weren’t dancing, cuz u didn’t know how
to be honest you were more than right…
but if you want, I can teach you now…
wish i could tell you to your face…
