As I lie here thinking of where I am today,
And what I choose to do,
There’s a presence in my head,
The unmistakeable ghost of you.

Your eyes, your smile, the way you laugh,
Could stop anyone dead in their tracks,
I had no chance I got caught in your headlights,
I knew there’d be no turning back
.

Could you not see the shyness in my eyes,
The red cheeks would give it away,
When in a group I’d be the loudest of them all,
When you’re there, I never knew what to say.
 
As time went by our friendship only seemed to grow,

Then one day I realised,
I had to let you know
.

Maybe I shouldn’t have done it then,
Alcohol fueled demand,
I’d kept the words tight, I got it right
I prayed that you’d understand.

I waited for the inevitable,
The jaw-drop to the floor,
When you’d say what you REALLY thought
And send me flying out the door
.

You never did you were so kind,
Almost too good to be true,
Whatever you said the haze of alcohol-fueled panic,
Only reinforced what I thought of you.

The following days were very strange,
Your attitude was  different in every way
As if I was dead, or you’d never met me
Until that very day.


That was it I’d had enough
I really couldn’t stay,
To have to see you all the time,
And have you break my heart this way,

I’ve moved away now, we don’t ever talk
As far as things go we’d never have met,
Have you ever thought about things since I went
Answer is no, I’d hazard a bet.

What you don’t know and I’ll never say,

I still love you.....
