My feet walked through the air
I felt the steps
I felt every touch of the solid ground
But i failed to feel the cry of my heart.

My hair bathed under the sunlight
I tasted its sweetness
I tasted every burn in my skin
Bu i failed to taste my own words.

My hands slid through yours
I heard greetings from your mouth
I heard everything from the start
But I failed to hear the echoes.

My body danced in laughter
I played with the world
i played with every thing there is in space
But i failed to play with real emotions.

My mind jumped up and down the rules
I understood how to manipulate
I understood every fall bit by bit
But I failed to understand myself.

My heart flew in the abundance of the sky
I saw how blue it was
I saw how blood bade
But I failed to see the reflection of my own eyes.

I knew just how it goes
I knew just how to clear the view
I knew just how to hold back
But I still did fall for you.
