Inside 1/29/01

If I looked into your eyes
And saw through your heart
Would I like what I saw there
Or would disappointment reign?

If you looked at me and knew
What I was thinking
How would you change
The way you feel?
Would you act differently
Towards me?

These questions unanswered
Makes me wonder
Why we're here
And if all these feelings
Were meant to send us somewhere
Or if now here is the place for us to be

If everything were pure and simple
And conflicting words were lost
So only those with clearest intents remained
Then you would know
How scared and lonely I feel
But maybe I'm wasting my time
And we were never meant to be

Then again,
If you are in accord with me
We were truly meant to be
And love will find the way
Through joy and pain
Through sunshine and rain
If you only knew what I feel inside

All these feelings welling up
I don't know what to make of them
They cloud up my vision
And impair my voice
So that whenever you're near
I can't say all that I want to

Just the thought of you
Brings a chill to my spine
This effect you have on me
Is beyond compare

But how do I say what
I truly feel
If fear binds me more
With every step I take
But what swiftens the blow
Is that you're oblivious
To this tumult within me
Your calm is misleading
And I'm lost as it is

Then again,
If you are in accord with me
We were truly meant to be
And love will find the way
Through joy and pain
Through sunshine and rain
If you only knew what I feel inside
