Here I am... On my own...
Posted by Hello ______________________________________________
I could runaway, with you, just as long as you are here with me
To a land so far away, even if there is a fear lying beneath…
I could runaway, with you, if you would hold my hand,
But I know you wouldn’t, you wouldn’t take this chance for a friend.
Would you hear my beating heart, hear it clear?
Can you hear, its acceleration, can you hear?
A loud “thump” sending a shiver down, it’s a fear,
A fear that I might fall back to where I returned from, so far, yet so near…
I could listen, listen to what you have to say,
Hearing from you is such a pleasure, you probably wouldn’t understand.
I could listen, listen to your heart and the soul within,
I want to hear every beat, even if I’m not a part of it…
Only for a moment, perhaps for a while…
I can indulge in the happiness of a true smile…
But it dissolves the moment it is brought forth.
For the moment it arrives, and snap! It’s gone.
The present has indeed turned into memories - what my future could not bring,
I shall let you go, if you should choose to leave,
Your pursuit for freedom has held me captive,
A captive for you, I have gladly chosen to be….
I could runaway, with you, even if you are not here with me
To a land so far away, where you could be free
I could runaway, with you, even without your hand in mine,
Because I know nothing matters, it's what I feel inside
