So what if I told you my heart was calm,
holding the beat like that of a steady drum?
Would you still be there,
standing strong as my defender?
Or would you move on as they've all done
looking for your next damsel in distress,
and leaving me behind to regress.

I'm not afraid to admit I was wrong,

Not now that my wrongs have led me right

But I do miss you once in a while

And wish we could still share the smile we used to.

So what if I told you, with you I'm happy,
as we stand where we are.
Loved but not in love
cared for and whole
cause that's all I need
to be happy...free.
Would you run,
to be free?

I'm not afraid to admit I was wrong,

Not now that my wrongs have led me right

But I do miss you once in a while

And wish we could still share the smile we used to.

So what if I told you, I know you still cared
that you watch over me like the spirits protect mystic lands
that your presence is ever felt in every breath and every step.
Would you come from the shadows and just be a figureā€¦
enlightenment, in my life.
Or will you forever lurk in the shadows
afraid of the wrongs you've done
because forgiveness is not deserved and still,
yet for you I'd grant it.

I'm not afraid to admit I was wrong,

Not now that my wrongs have led me right

But I do miss you once in a while

And wish we could still share the smile we used to.

So what if I told you, the longer you play this dodging game

The harder for you it is to come home.

That I love but no longer in love,

Never will be for it's not the same.

That I still pine for that singular human emotion

That will forever escape me.

Until I learned to embrace solidarity

And one has to be alone before one can love.

I'm not afraid to admit I was wrong,

Not now that my wrongs have led me right,

But I do miss you once in a while

And wish we could still share the smile we used to.
But I know we never will.

Not by my choice,

But by a need of your own self-preservation.

I love you forever, dearly.

But I am so glad I was wrong,

Cause it taught me how to love.

So what if i told you, he makes me happy

by being the friend you never could.
