Once i spoke with a stranger, told him my tales of woe
And in an instant he was a stranger no more
A bond I formed with this stranger, friendship had begun
Unknown to me, my heart had already fallen in love

I told my heart, be cautious, we've been there before
I don't think she heard me, all prancing and aglow
The net brought us together; the click of a button changed my life
In just a matter of ten days, I wanted him to be mine

I had never met him, nor seen what he looked like
I only saw the words, I love you, blink from time to time
He was the best friend I've had, best ten days I have known
But some things last forever and others are better left alone

I didn't mean to hurt him; I just wanted it to be more
I couldn't bear to lose him, but I knew he had to go
Why did I hurt him knowing how sad he was
Why was I so selfish? Now he has no one

Often, the world has judged me, called me an outcast
He accepted me as I was, loved me despite my past
If I could have but one wish, I wouldn't wish for gold
I think that all I'd ever want would be him to have and hold.
