i tucked my love for you away
behind your ear as if it was your hair
as if i’d ever been that close to touching your body
if i had, i’d have whispered in your ear
words that i thought you’d like to hear
as i’ve not been wrong in thinking that you loved me

and my heart beats and my heart breaks
for these contingencies
my heart asks, my heart aches
for what could’ve should’ve would’ve been
if we’d been in love

i let my hope for love diffuse
into the atmosphere
as if it was your voice
as if i ever had the choice to listen forever
if i had as if you’d have spoken to me
the things that you say in my dreams
as the thoughts were clear and only the language was broken

i let the thought of you just find its way
out of the light and into the darkness
as if my mind could go on burning without you
if it could as if any flame would consume
any thoughts left not of you
as if every spark were not in the shadow of your fire
