Too much caffeine is keeping me from dreaming…
or is it the prospect of you leaving?
Churning thoughts won’t let me unwind.
Such a short time, but you’re in my mind.
As for my heart? Too soon to tell.
But I know how fast that I once fell.
And falling is what I do best—
ask to push me, I’ll say yes.
Be careful with all those sweet words
they collect in my mind; forming herds.
And once there are enough of them,
I’ll be so confident again.
They’ll stomp out all my worries;
lead me to love in such a hurry.
And when I’m confident, you’ll find
no doubts will even cross my mind.
Running up mountains I will go,
chasing things others dare not follow.
But eventually I’ll find a cliff
and see nothing I can hold on with.
I will fall and fall if you let me drop,
I’ll sink and sink and still not stop.
If you save me, my heart you’ll get;
rewarding a hero of such great merit.
We’ll go on loving until we’re done,
and always remember the war we’d one.
But if you do not follow me,
I’ll reach the bottom of the sea.
There I’ll stay until I know
I’m strong enough to let you go.
And once I let you go, I’ll find
that all of this was in my mind.
The caffeine that had kept me up
is now an empty coffee cup.
