Lie low, sleep tight. Hide out, hold tight.
I don’t level with you; I hide behind analogies and cryptic meanings. I don’t always speak truth; sometimes I won’t even talk. sometimes silence says it all.
I’m not sure when I’ll be ready to hold a heart that beats so steady, but i hope you’ll wait for me.
i lack a sense of urgency: i’ll know what i want, but then it gets lost whenever i leave. come back before it’s too late, but for now stay where, duck and cover under your sheets, dream.
And I ask so much of you already, but you hold strong while I’m unseen and refuse your company.
There’s a fine line in between patience and indecision, and I’ve caught you in the middle; it feels like years and years and years.
