For You

What is happening?
This is confusing me
All this sadness and worry
Are making me stop to breathe

It’s difficult to keep running
But for you, I’ll do it forever
I can’t even feel my feet
And my toes are in protest

For you, I’ll do it forever
I’ll do it a thousand times
Making pasta in the day
Drinking ginger beer at night

What do we do when we’re bored?
Who cares, we’re together
It makes sense to me
It all makes sense to me

When we’re together
I’m never sorry for being me
The fun, real version of this ghost
It’s what happens when we’re free

I can’t help but feel alive
Even though my feet
Are numb and my toes
Are screaming out in anger

I hope we die laughing
And go to heaven in a pool
We sit by the fire forever
And never return to this place

Though that’s so unlikely
It’ll be our imaginary place
Remember, best friend
You’re forever in my heart

I’ll walk with you down a road
I’ll run away with you
I’ll text a thousand people
I’ll watch a billion movies

For you, I’ll do it forever
I’ll do it a thousand times
Making pasta in the day
Drinking ginger beer at night.
