Half-here

Half-Here
Look at me, my laughter and smile
     my curled hair, my dressed up style
facade that you rarely see through,
     only the close and very few

 try hard to fill the cracks with light,
         But beneath it is gloomy night 
 My love, my everything, my bliss
         My heart - Stole my happiness

Our troubles, I thought not much
        In the end, you cooled to my touch
Remember the good times, you said
        Mind blinking, I was aching  to mend

I was ready to go forward, but not you
        Holding back, not ready, I knew
I wanted to give you me and more.                                 
         But your distance brought, only tore

 Why did you keep me so long?
      I was so deep in your song.
Didn't want this - wasn't me - why?!
      It was you, that made my heart cry.

If ever you want your first whats real
       And we both know how we feel
Even when you run, run far away.                         
          I'll be  the one - i'll stay

 Til then, I was wrong, I thought forever 
       No more happy times, no laughter
Behind the mask, I'll hide the broken
      And real love, again, will never be spoken
