The original person who this was dedicated to... let's just say it isn't dedicated to him anymore. The dedications are kind of up in the air. ^^

I cannot comprehend
This love that you promise me
All my life, I've been wishing for it, craving it
But somehow, it doesn't make sense
It's too easy, to simply obtained
There must be something more
A catch
A price

Or is there?

I can't tell, I'm not sane
Your eyes are promising me so many things
That I've always wanted
Your hands are promising me eternal solace
But my heart is promising me more sorrow
What can I do?

I love you, I love you
I love you so much
But is it enough?

Nothing good will come of this
I know, I tell myself, I know
The end will be terrible and it will just go to show
How foolish I am
To give you my heart, my trust
my soul
my life, my love
everything I have to give

We live so far away, but you feel so close
You can love me more than anyone around here
But there are so many better
to forfeit my love letter
You are the only one I want
The only thing I need
I know that you will find her someday
I will be no contest

And my heart will lie broken,
Or will you bury it first?
Perhaps give it that one last kiss goodbye to heat the token
That I press into my flesh, remembering your last words
Branding me forever,
A tattoo

Tattoos never fade
My heart will never heal
But I don't have to worry yet
You're still here
