BEYOND THE VIEW



BEYOND THE VIEW


I saw you through a telescope

A million miles away in the night

A partial glimpse of subtleties far beyond the view of naked eyes


I mapped the course of shooting stars

Sent from you as hints of who you are

I lost sight of you in the black, caught up searching for the traits you lack


But the distance is the lesser crime done


I know this hurts, it's not the first

But it is the worst, you deserve

More than me, I hope you see

Love is lost and I can't be

The saving light of your life

In the dark I must hide

To keep you safe, far from hate

I hope you know


You deserve better, better

You deserve, you deserve better

You deserve better, better

You deserve, you deserve better

Than me


What I’m searching for I do not know

Maybe I can’t comprehend your light

Oh my head, ‘round and ‘round it goes

Looking back I wish we took our time


But it’s not a waste

This game we play

It’s all for what we learn

And if we choose to break

Or hesitate

Take it for what it's worth


But the distance is the lesser crime done


I know this hurts, it's not the first

But it is the worst, you deserve

More than me, I hope you see

Love is lost and I can't be

The saving light of your life

In the dark I must hide

To keep you safe, far from hate

I hope you know


You deserve

You deserve

You deserve

You deserve better
