I’ve fallen so hard that I’m still seeing stars
whenever I see your face
and my head’s not quite right and I can’t sleep at night
if I’m longing for your embrace.
I’m not eating or sleeping, just quietly weeping
but please don’t think it’s all bad
it’s just that I’m crazy for you and my days without you
can sometimes make me sad.
But along with frustration, I’m full of admiration
and I don’t think I can look away
you light a flame in me, diminish the blame in me;
I hang on to each word that you say.
I see the moon in the sky but I’m so mesmerised
by you and the way that you are.
I can’t help but stare, cannot look anywhere
but at you, not even to the stars.
I know I’m just a baby but I wonder if maybe
you’d like to make me your own
after a year of kissing you, every day missing you,
and staying up late on the phone.
It’s all fun and games and it’s minimal pain
because I know we belong together
we survive every storm and keep each other warm
no matter how cold the weather.
I know that you’re feeling more than you’re revealing
and I know that you’re equally scared
but I’m feeling that fear and I promise I’m here
and I’ll follow you everywhere.
It’s so late at night now, the moon is so bright now
and I wish you were here by my side
but you’ll be here again and the sadness will end
and being yours gives me such pride.
