I dreamed a dream I have dreamt before,
This is one of so many more.
This is just another dream of you,
But Im still caught wondering if it is one to pursue.
You have me caught on something within,
Something that makes me not want to live in sin.
What is it about you that makes me hold on?
What makes me want to be by your side at dawn?
Nobody has ever made me feel this way,
And I will be like this until my dying day.
I dont know why I cant seem to let go,
After all this time, I feel like Ive come to know:
With you, I can never be,
So why cant I open my eyes and see?
I want to hold you though you can never be held,
I want to feel you though you can never be felt.
I want to know you though you can never be known,
I want to show you though you can never be shown.
I want to kiss you though you can never be kissed,
I want back that opportunity I know Ive missed.
Im so confused and do not know why,
It makes me want to just sit and cry.
Why cant I just tell you the whole way I feel?
How can I tell you what I feel is real?
You seem so perfect in every way,
I know for these feelings, I will soon have to pay.
Because I know nothing comes without a price,
I guess its all within the luck of the dice.
Theres so many close to me who (in love) do not believe,
So loving you brings a price you cannot conceive.
But still, Im willing to give it all away,
Im willing to get lost and forever run astray.
What is it about you that makes you so special to me?
Tell me what makes me try, though I know it can never be?
All I know, is theres something about you that touches my heart,
And from you, I never want to be apart.
