I cannot express
How you make me feel
Unsure myself
If it's even real

So oft' have I
Been left to lie
To myself
To get by

I am left
In my own deception
On my lips lingers
One true question

If I am who I am
You are who you are
Then how have I
Carried on this far

Surely dead of abandonment
Or love so pure
It would shatter my heart
In a single life-long beat
