What is it that we do?

I tell myself that it’s okay

It feels so right when I'm with you

It’s never been this way

I look at you but I can’t see

All I do is feel

Every precious memory, lost to the surreal

I crave they way you wake my skin

I’m reeling when you hold me

I’ve treasured every word you’ve said

And still I feel so lonely

It seems that I can’t keep you close

And I don’t really know you

So much of you familiar

A stranger all the same

Together we’re in synchrony

Effortless, natural

But the moment that you slip away

I find I’ve nothing left

I feel like letting go sometimes

If us is only me

It's hard to trust a wounded heart

That colors everything I see

I ache to ask for so much more

Unsure of what I need

Gently, I cling to your every affection

And quietly I reclaim me
