24 Lines
I can't pretend not to love easily,
And I doubt you would believe me
When I say you're a different song,
Ah my hopes are 24 lines long.

It only takes that touch inside you felt
To set that cards that we are dealt;
I thought at last I held a winning hand,
Ah this game of life I'll never understand.

To which I lost my rebellious heart
Somehow in your warm and honest art,
Would that I could drown your fear,
Ah if I could but catch every tear.

It's by night and day that I'm forlorn;
As day follows night so is dawn,
As night follows day so is dusk,
Ah this hope is but an empty husk.

Still I can't empty myself of this
That lies behind every single kiss,
If only we could touch fingertips,
Ah if only we could touch lips.

Ah we danced once, on the town,
After the sun had already gone down,
Ah we danced twice, just us two,
And these 24 lines are for you.
Author's Notes:
My heart, in 24 lines, is always yours...
