So you think you have me already
Quiet and steady under your thumb ?
You think you're holding me,
With a bipolarity that blinds the enemy;
One day I'm stupid and invisible,
Your favorite and most vulnerable target
On which you test all of your powers
Making me feel just as weak;
And the next day,
Undressed of all your guards and ghosts,
Tenderness is all you hold
And night to dawn you'll stay for hours,
Talk what's ours, and ask me to elope.
Tell me, did you lose?
See I have given up those silly games
We have been playing on forever,
As soon as I stopped and realized
The little time we have left together.
But as you carry on, I wonder
Can I stand this any longer? No.
You're the smallest of my problems,
Yet the one I think of most,
But if you're too pleased to sort it out
Then just please leave me alone.
And now I'll leave the hardest words
Ones that I will never tell you,
Ones we'll always run away from:
I think I love you.
