There are ways I could have you,
without a single word;
There are reasons I could give you,
that wouldn't sound absurd.
There are times I could want you,
that you will never feel;
There were moments you kiss me,
but they aren't even real.
There are words I should write you,
that never could explain-
There are actions that may hurt you,
but you'd never show the pain.
There are nights I could touch you,
that would end this ache inside,
There are feelings I should show you,
where I wouldn't want to hide.
There are silences I could fill,
and heartbeats you would hear;
There are shadows where I'd whisper -
that, "love can conquer fear."
There are ways I could look at you,
when my heart is there to see;
There are dreams I would give you...
but they aren't meant to be.
