Despite the obvious you promise a forever.
Despite the obvious you claim you love me.
You claim that you're in love with me.
You claim that it's only me.

Despite the obvious,
You love me for all of my flaws.
For our views that don't agree.
For our beliefs that don't match up.

Despite the obvious,
You say it doesn't bother you.
You say that you'll only love me.
You say that it's my choice.

Despite the obvious,
You still don't know heartbreak.
You may know the world through a different view,
You still have yet to feel heartbreak.

Despite the obvious,
You know I don't trust you to keep your word.
You know I'm prepared for any moment you could leave.
For all of those to be left broken.

Despite the obvious,
You know I'm scared for you to leave.
Despite the obvious,
You know I know that you love me.

Despite the obvious,
You have overlooked them and saw only me.
You saw the love for me.
You saw my love for you.

Despite the obvious,
You saw beyond our differences,
Even if they bothered you.
You saw me and just me.

So despite the obvious,
Still don't make promises you can't keep.
Don't say words you mean.
Don't love that you don't truly feel.

Then I'll know and be okay.
