Driving down the road and we cross paths Two roads diverged by the confines of a yellow line and we both took the same one. Natural curiosity casually has me glance over and I make eye contact with a stranger Maybe we are family members that haven't met yet Will our story be "remember when I saw you on the highway?" Will you remember my face? I instinctually look back You did too But you glanced at me as if I told you one day I'm going to the moon Why do we look away? Are we aliens in our own galaxy? Don't alienate me We are of the same skin We are of the same bones We are of the same blood In this Earth we call home
Falling in love is so hard Especially, when you won't even look into my eyes We maintain a heightened sense of fear this way Maybe we are supposed to be afraid When I fall in love It will be fearless You will pass me on the highway We will both make eye contact And not one of us will glance away It will be a war waged on who looks back first Our corneas burning Bloodshot circles from staying up all night discovering the different hues Eighty years in a single second It will be a universe inside of our pupils I swear I will be able to see the stars Taking a million leaps forward Never glancing back.
