No one said this would be easy
If they did
They lied
and you knew it the second it came out of their mouth
But I'm not here to complain or accuse
Just to write
Just to be me
It took me so long to figure that out
Like the world was waiting on me to be me
and for you to be you
for us to be us
Together
It all makes sense now
The way you blushed
Made me think of cliched roses
Standing alone on a field of porcelain cream
Underneath two blue suns
Radiance is what it was
I could never have believed that your radiance would be for me
I wasn't myself
I was what others wanted
And no one wanted to see our hearts exchanged
So I couldn't allow myself to dream of the stars
But you took the chance
You blushed
Which let the world see your attraction
Even if I couldn't

We've been ourselves
Been us
For a while now
And I can't help but wonder
Would you marry me if I asked?
Would you let your radiance shine through once again?
It would be like stealing paradise all over again
No one would want rings to pass hands
But we would do it anyways
Love is something that cannot be stopped.
