Tonight, let's watch the world fade
Hold me and forget
Everything worrying you
Reality - let's take a break from it

Enjoying the moment
And the feeling of your hand
Resting in mine
Earnestly feeling you understand

Talk to me and remember
How we truly feel
I'll remember eternally
Nothing ever felt so real

Get lost in conversation
Stay until we're found
I'll find who you truly are
We'll still stay here safe and sound

And I used to feel so cold
Now you keep me warm
Talking slowly
Til the right words form

Or we can lay in near silence
Softly whispering your name
And I used to be so cold -
You set my heart aflame

Tonight, let's watch the world fade
Or watch ours take shape instead
Your hand resting in mine
Our whole lives ahead
Unified by all the words we ever said

The Days That Never Came

Daydreams swirl around me
Remembering the days that never came
Enjoy pondering the possibility
Agitated that reality will never be the same

Memories that never were
Softly invade my head
Oscillate between my thoughts
Focused on words never actually said

Me and you, in an alternate world
Elated with no end
Me and you, what could have been
Only possible in the pretend

Reality attempts to dispel -
I continue dreaming
Endeavors to disenchant me -
Still, my thoughts are gleaming

Tomorrow, perhaps, I'll give it up
Haven't had the heart to yet
Agitating as it is -
Troubled me since the day we met

Never could get you out of my head
Endings haven't stopped you
Visiting my dreams so often
Enjoy the notions, and hate them too

Recalling a future that never was -
Wishes that reality will forever disclaim
Endeavoring to give them up, they
Remain through ice and flame

Echoing the days that never came
