But I Do

I turn to you

And I know I shouldn’t

He treats me fine

But you show more attention

Little messages during the day

And chats at night

That something extra

When you call me dear

 

I turn to you

And I know I shouldn’t

That getting to know you rush

In discovering things in common

The connection to you

That I cannot explain

That something extra

When you say you missed me

 

I turn to you

And I know I shouldn’t…

Hello

The moment I said hello
My world changed
When your attention
Your touch
Your taste
All drew me in
Somehow we just fit
And every moment was alive

I can’t say why it ended
Sometimes these things just do
But it left me with
Insatiable memories
Me still wanting you

I’ll settle for the next best thing
A friendship built on love
That never went away
But some days I still wonder
Can we get a second chance

A chance to once again
Rekindle what might have been
With your attention
Your touch
Your taste
All that drew me in
That night so long ago
When I first said hello
