This is a song, basically. If I could write music, you can bet I would write it for this. I could hear a tune vaguely in my head as I re-read it and it reminded me of "A Moment Like This" you know. Since this is a pretty mushy song. I'm the next Britney Spears! Yay!
Yeah right, get real. Anyway, I kinda like it in a self-loathing sort of way. It sorta rhymes and sorta doesn't. Inspired by...well...if you could call it inspiration. Just a brain belch.
I have a secret only you canít know
Itís a secret that involves you alone
Hidden inside, it tears me apart
Because I canít tell you
Iím afraid of losing
But itís too late
Oh itís too late
My heart is yours and yours to take
You donít know you have it
Itís yours if you want it
But please donít give it
Back to me
I couldnít take it
When I lost it long before I knew
That it belongs to you.
I donít know what love is
I canít describe it to you
All I know is that I want to always be with you
Is that silly of me to want
You with me forever?
Tell me is it so wrong to want to see you
I try to tell myself I can live without you
That if you left I could go on
And even if I could, it would be like
The early hours of morning
Right before the sun
But the light would never come
But itís not too late
Oh itís not too late, I know
To turn around and tell you just why I canít let go
Like the last shreds of darkness hold on to the rays of light
I feel you slipping through my fingers
Iím disappearing into night
Is it too late for me to tell you?
Is it too late for you to know?
Should I tell you how I feel and why I canít let go?
Should I lay it all down on the line and risk losing you for good?
Or should I bite my tongue and tell myself
That what I have
Is it too late?
Well, what were you expecting? Don't say I didn't warn you. I would think the Britney Spears reference would be enough.
