One of those 'tear drops on my guitar' themes. The type of thing when you can't be with that person for whatever reason and even though it kills you, you're so helplessly in love that it almost makes it okay....

There is a barrier between us,
keeping us apart,
but i can't stop thinking about you,
it's been like that from the start,

I know it's wrong,
but i want it so bad,
your eyes leave me intoxicated,
and then just plain sad,

I can't explain it to my friends,
they can't comprehend,
what is it about you,
that's left me at a dead end,

i swear i'm over it,
there's nothing to know,
but my insides say otherwise
everytime i see you they overflow,

I stay silent,
just a smile here and there,
waiting for you,
even though it's not fair,

Someday you'll be released,
i'll be free then too,
Everything will be available,
but the feelings won't be new

but for now i'll keep to myself,
dreaming in my head,
for the day that you'll be mine,
instead.

I really like those last two stanzas where you seem to come to your senses but then decide not to. Brilliant!
