Because I don’t say
Because I won’t say
It’s another night back and forth
 
I’d rather not speak too fast
And find that we won’t last
Just end up hurt again
 
I want to be a friend,
Though it’s not my only end
I want to know you full and well
 
But it kills me to hold back
I don’t want you to think that I might lack
And miss a beautiful opportunity
 
But time does pass, when is it right?
I wish this haze would send an idea bright
Before I lose it all, fall back to dark
 
But these things come from me
And maybe you’re not ready to see
Or you likely know and let it be
So another night, we go back and forth

(2014)
