You can’t tell
The wheat fields and
Crystalline sky before you
From a day at the beach
And I can’t tell
Your gleaming eyes before me
From the azure ocean

Perhaps you’re a little crazy
And perhaps I am too
But what does it matter
If you’re the one
I’d die for, even if I have
Not the vaguest clue
If you would too?

A million times over
I’ve made a fool of myself
In front of you
And a million times over
You’ve done the same to me too
But I know you’re something special
And I hope with everything I have that
You think the same

I recall
That one time
You mixed up scissors with a knife
And I’m sure you can recollect
When I confused
Death with life

Perhaps you’re a little crazy
And perhaps I am too
But what does it matter
If you’re the one
I’d die for, even if I have
Not the vaguest clue
If you would too?

A million times over
I’ve made a fool of myself
In front of you
And a million times over
You’ve done the same to me too
But I know you’re something special
And I hope with everything I have that
You think the same

A million times over
I’ve made a fool of myself
In front of you
And a million times over
You’ve done the same to me too
But I know you’re something special
And I hope with everything I have that
You think the same


The author's comments:
I wrote this thinking about the one I really think is special. But the problem is, I don't know if he feels the same way at all. I'm too afraid of rejection to ask, and as of yet he hasn't said anything about my awkward behavior around him, but I hope he likes me back.
