Wrong time You mentioned her after dinner Wrong place The warmth of a June day in New York City A day late He blushes but it isn't for me to see A dollar short And I haven't seen him since I cant handle the disappointment of his blackberry eyes So I don't dare look
I wish I could see the future To know if you were meant for me So I could have a dream to look forward to And ease this onset of anxiety I wish I could read your heart Like a glowing crystal ball To know how you truly felt And if you did care for me after all I wish I could read the skyline The subconscious of your mind To know if there is something between us In any other time Dwelling I'm left with enormous thirst Like a half bloomed flower Waiting for it's moment to burst But not every bud blooms And not every future is certain And while you are lost in another flower field I am waiting beyond a clouded curtain Watching Waiting to feel your feet on my path Waiting for you to visit Will you pluck me in your wrath? Or plant yourself in the space next to mine
Not every bud blooms But this bud could bloom in time...
I'm anxious That you'll stop needing me The bricks between us keep getting taller And harder for me to hurdle I'm always the one scaling the wall Pick axing through the center So I can grab your hand And yell wait! I'm uneasy That you'll stop wanting me The miles between us keep getting longer And harder for me to walk I'm always the one running the path Hijacking cars and speeding So I can miss your hand And yell wait! I'm stressed That you'll move on without me The calendar keeps flipping Years and years go by I'm always the one trying to catch up to you Running out of breath So I can see the back of your head And yell wait!
And like the rare blood moon Shining rouge hues against my skin He saw me But I was too afraid to ask how I looked For 2 years and 2 months My tears are falling When his voice carries through my room It's palpable Struck with the realization That like the blood moon Even he could see a woman like me every once in a while Struck with the pain of knowing In a different reality We may have been lovers And in this one We'll always be a night sky apart
