The Perfect One

I drown in all the faces
That surround me every day
But you broke through all the masses
Took my breathlessness away
I found my voice
I found my reason to go on
I never guessed that love’s a choice
I thought I’d found the perfect one

Then you lean back in bed beside me
And I cover my head to hide me
There’s no gun, there’s no scissors
When love’s done, it just withers
We both know that it’s over
Between us

You want something to hold on to
But you want to stand alone
You see me running to your rescue
So you turn your heart to stone
Too hard to choose
So you wait for me to run
To scared to trust, too much to lose
If you’ve found the perfect one

So you lean back in bed beside me
And I cover my head to hide me
There’s no cries, there’s no listeners
When love dies, it’s in whispers
We both know that it’s over
Between us

When all the words are spoken
Silence steals away your youth
All your promises lay broken
All you’re left with is the truth
You change direction
Now your searching days are done
You’ve loved, you’ve lost,
You’ve found perfection
In somehow and not someone

There’s no light from the heavens to guide you
There’s no magic to cure what’s inside you
You’re still torn, I’m still lonely
But when love’s born, it comes slowly
And we both know that it’s only
Begun
