An Unsaid Thought

Jeffrey J La Point 1977 (Ohio)



An Unsaid Thought

When I say I love you, do you feel the same? When you say you love me, do you mean it?

When I say I need you, do you feel the same? When you say you need me, do you mean it?

When I say I want you, do you feel the same? When you say you want me, do you mean it?

When I say I can't live without you, do you feel the same? When you say you can't live without me, do you mean it?

I know that I don't love you, but I say that I do.

I know that I don't need you, but I say that I do.

I know that I don't want you, but I say that do.

I know I can live without you, but I say that I can't.
