Parting such sweet sorrow
yet we've never met
and I know you are one
that I'd never regret

Though you haven't seen me
I hang on to your every word
I hang on to every belief
because every word you say
sets me free

Sages say love is blind
and that may be true
corinthians say love is kind
and yet so are you

You are the exotic type
that stole my heart like a crook
and reads between every line
like I was an open book

I don't really call it love
more like common interest
because I know with real love
both people must invest
and there is something there from me
and that you can already guess

Time may go on
and my lips may turn blue
you'll have moved on
and I'll know the truth

That childhood is over
and something is sent from above
and I'm still trying to convense myself
I don't want to fall in love

The tears I am crying
they are fake
yet with a void that is you
they're easy to make

I pray that when you're done
playing repzion
that you will have someone there
for you to lean on

and even if you don't
you'll still have me
but I'm smart enough to know
without being there physically
it's the hardest thing to do
to trust me

The girl you chose
will be the luckiest on earth
and hopefully she'll be the type
to do anything so you don't feel
a single ounce of hurt

This one's for you Daniel.
