I just can't make sense of it.
You left me so confused.
I thought you couldn't see me.
But now we're stealing kisses like little kids in a candy store.
Behind the backs of others –
They wouldn't understand.
But secrets never leave me satisfied.
If only one person knew.
Just one person.
Then the world would know –
And you would vanish like a child playing hide and seek.
Recess is over.
