I Just Want You To Wake One Day

I just want you to wake one day and maybe comprehend
The extent of my emotions, but I doubt you'd understand
I shouldn't have to ask to always be there on your mind
I'm sick and tired of never knowing, looking for a sign

I want you to let go now, I need you to be free
Will there ever come a time where you HAVE to be beside me?
I wish when I unshut my eyes in the first glimpse of light
I'd find that you had stayed awake to watch me sleep all night

I want to feel my back upon the cool, hardness of wall
Take advantage of the moment, you can't resist at all
The catching of my breath, you know I never could disguise
The sheer volume of rapturous desire in my eyes

I want you to reach out for me, in the dead of night
I want your eyes to pursue me, never leave your sight
I realise you've never tasted love upon your tongue
I want to fuel your soul with an explicit sensation

Do I creep into your day with all the silly things we've said?
Do they play a smile upon your lips and echo round your head?
Those unexpected moments when I hear a certain tune
Transports me back to conversations I have shared with you

I just want you to wake one day and maybe comprehend
The extent of my emotions, but I doubt you'd understand.
