The Lonely One

Who am I to say if you’ve gone away?
We get together and it’s so much fun,
But when you leave,
My heart tells me that you’re the only one.

I know I’m the lonely one,
The lonely one.

I choke on my words,
And I stumble at your smile,
We could talk for mere hours,
But I can only stay a while.

Your words make me weak,
And I don’t know what to say,
I know I’m too meek,
But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I know I’m the lonely one,
The lonely one.

You came on strong,
But the break-up was amicable,
And it didn’t take long,
To bring you back to me

So here I am,
With maturity,
And I guess it’s cool,
If you’re not into me,

I won’t be the lonely one,
The lonely one.

I wish I could show you my Heaven,
But you’d know him all too well,
If I could escape from this,
I needn’t salvage myself from hell.

I’d tell him to look no further,
Than beyond the plexiglass,
The reflection staring back at him,
Is all he’d need to see,
To know that he’s the one,
Who’s meant to be standing next to me.

I know I’m the only one,
The only one,
The lonely one.
