How Come Everyone Sees It But You?


Everyone can feel it,
everyone can see it
but you’re choosing to be stoic
and you’re choosing to be blind.

Everyone keeps pushing you
but you’re standing still.
Everyone keeps whispering in your ear
but you’re always covering them.

What would it take for you to listen?
What would it take for you try?
Why can’t you just let yourself fall?
And maybe I’ll catch you.

Because if they can see it,
then it must be true
and if they can feel it
then it must be real.

But even if they didn’t
I know we both do,
I know we both know.
I know we’re both scared.

But what’s scarier, being together or
watching each other be with someone else?
What’s more terrifying?
Loving each other or losing each other?

I’ll leave the answer up to you,
because if you ask anyone
they’ll tell you it’s about time,
they’ll tell you to jump in with both feet.

And if you ask me,
I’ll tell you they’re right
and they’ve always been
because they know you and
they know me and they know
that if this is ever happens,
it will be magic and
this will be a fairy tale.
