I wish I could love you

But I don’t think there’s any life left in me

And I don’t know how to bring it back

So how can I love you

When I don’t know what real love is

And I’m not even sure it exists at all

At least you can’t possibly break me

When I was never even close to whole

So I will try to love you, keep trying everyday

But I’m afraid of losing my whole self in you

Because that’s always been so hard for me

You are just an ocean, boy,

And I am a stone…

So I will try to love, I wish I could love

As if nothing could be wrong.

The thing is

I don’t believe in infinity for anyone

I think there’s a starting over point

So when I promise to be your forever

What I’m really promising I’ll do

Is keep on finding you in every life

And try to love every person you become

I’ll be a different stone and you a different sea

But I’ll try to love you all the same

So nothing is wrong.
