Find that one person,
your escape from the world,
the person that makes you concentrate
on their every word.
Maybe it's not worth the risk
or all the needless crying;
maybe it's not real at all -
all those people are lying.
But then one word, a secret smile,
and all the pain is worth the while.
I can see you smile now
and I'm rooted to the ground:
without a single sound,
wishing for a fairytale,
praying it comes true,
knowing all the while
I can never have you.
Take my hand so I can finally belong;
make me forget everything that went wrong;
and I pray one day you'll finally see
I wished everyday that you'd love me.
