real

i don't want you perfect
i just want you real

i don't want you right
i just want you true

i don't want you to try
i just want you to be

and be... and be.. and be.....

be exactly who you are

and i will love you
the more for it

for the more
i learn about you
being you

the more i can learn
about me

being me

(true)

wordless

i don't think
i've ever felt
this cherished before

when you hold me
to the light
i feel your gladness
all through your hugs

and when you
draw me near
to kiss me

i feel your body
relax and move
slowly forward

asking permission
to enter my world
with ever nuzzle
and squeeze

amazing me
with every mood
that you make

without even saying a word

(close)

so right

remember
that day
in the park

right before it rained?

you reached over
to touch my chin
with your fingertips

right before you kissed me

did you know
i felt the your heart
in your touch

right down to my very soul?

then the rain
interrupted our kiss
and we ran like children

right down the path to-gether

madness
and frolicking
happiness
and giggling

all in a burst of sudden love

right down the line

(go)

gone

i felt you
slip away
the moment i thought
i had you

i clutched
at the nothingness
night after night

trying to figure out
what was said
or what i thought

to make you
turn from me

and even now
i look
inside my heart

thinking
of what i was
and what i can't be

and what you saw
in me

those first few shining days
when i was perfect

watch

you're never
going to get me
entirely

it won't be your fault

the book hasn't been
written
to explain what i'm
thinking

the picture hasn't been
taken
to show you what i
see

and there will be
days
when all i can do
to keep my
sanity

is walk away
from your
strong embrace

no matter how
warm
you are

no matter how
much
you listen

i'm the one

who has to
understand me
first

before i can even
reach a hand out
to you

let me walk away

and i'll come back
just that much
stronger

even if
i'm deathly afraid
of each step
i take

(wait)
