A feeling so brand new,
But as I saw it in my rear view mirror,
The image became crystal clear.
The words that echo through my mind
Are traced with a feeling of a new kind.
Some sort of confidence that has yet to fall
And a hope that is strengthened with every call.
This could have been a ruthless game
Or we could watch it burn up in flames.
But with every word he speaks,
The quicken heartbeat,
The inside jokes,
And the newly golden hope,
One cannot suspect a tragic end
Or the loss of a more than friend.
Something that feels more right
With every distant summer night
Could not be overlooked
Or possibly overbooked.
Something built on honesty,
I know that he chooses me
Without the facade I thought I’d need
Or the desperate cries and pleads.
When his understanding of me wasn’t lost in translation
And his interest didn’t slip after my cautionary hesitation,
When I realized I had no doubts
And I wasn’t searching for a way out,
I knew I suddenly had something to lose.
