lyrics

My friends say I'm aloof,
emotionally recluse,
and I keep it that way
long as it keeps the pain at bay.

I make this transaction daily,
trading expression for safety.
Can't make it easy to love me,
so thank God they do anyways.

But I'm afraid my beloved
thinks my loves like a wire
being stretched by the distance
and tugging will snap it, not bring us together.

If I'm not there with her
will her love for me wither?
Without my kiss to convince her
does my loving survive the transmission?

I've been hiding my whole life.
Built a bunker, now I'm trapped inside.
Can't remember the last time
I told my friends that I love them,
told my family I think of them more than they know.

No one stays here forever.
They move away or depart for
a white gate that I'm not sure
that I even believe in.

May never see them again.
I'll live alone with regret
that I was afraid to express
just how much I loved all of them.
