Only One

All alone, a prisoner in my own mind.
All my thoughts so intertwined.
Thinking it will all be okay,
I can only lie for so long.
Turning to that song,
It’s the only way to feel you.
I have to.


Wishing it could all work out,
Maybe it’s a waste of time.
Loving you, it turned into such a crime.
They say time heals everything,
But nothing’s changed yet.
Hope is now so overrated.
My hearts’ bruises can’t be tolerated.
You could call it weakness, everything I feel.
With you, it could all be so real.


Secrets, they eat me alive.
Telling you is such a high dive.
From my own little world, you seem so far away.
It’s so hard to tell you that I’m okay.


Lying to you, it’s one of the hardest things ever
Please don’t say never.
I try to be strong,
It’s really only for you.
Seems like there’s nothing I can even do.
Because by now,
I know.
I know it’s not going to be that way.
There’s nothing more I can say.
The happiness, it’s not going to be mine.
After all, it’s just not my time to shine.
I dream that maybe someday you might know.
Maybe my feelings for you might show.


Please be the best.
The very best you can be.
I think that’s the only way I will be able to see.
Everything happens for a reason.
Every time has its own season.
Things will be okay.
Each day is a new day.
Just takes some time to adjust,
When the world seems so hard to trust.


I hope you know that you are my everything.
And I would give anything,
Just to know that you will be okay,
And you won’t let anything get in your way.
All I need is to know you’re going to be happy.
Even if it’s not with me.


I know I do complain,
I just have so much to explain.
You might read this someday and see,
Exactly all you mean to me.
When everything is said and done,
You will always be the only one.
