And you wonder why It's no wonder It's so easy to carry these feelings from day to day From sigh to heavy sigh Don't ask why I'm just quiet in my mood It's my way Apparently sullen, more probably shy (Textbook assumptions for the weary of eye) You earnestly try To put into logic The dense intensity Meeting of minds Try to make sense of the lengthening silence That's left me confused The lengthening silence that makes ghosts out of time Is it such a surprise? I'm surprised! I was captured from the moment The instant I saw you I never stopped trying I haven't stopped reaching out to you. I... But you You're thinking Were you thinking that I... Oh no! You're mistaken It's my nature A cold pretence hides a fire inside I'm afraid of the closeness Of the pain it inspires And now I... Now I ache from the yearning Want to know why There's no whisper, no trace, no word No sign Where if anywhere does presumptiousness lie - There in silent panic or here with foresight? The gift you gave tightens itself on my wrist Is that all it meant? Is there no more than this? The tightening, tangling, turbulent night Expanding the distance, extinguishing light I'm alone here I want you Do you hear me? Goodnight.
