You are sunshine hiding behind dark clouds.
And whether it rains or not,
I wanna be the earth that your tears fall on.

It's not easy to trust,
Nor is it easy to let go.
But the rains and thunderstorms will pass,
And then we'll see rainbows.

Cos you are fifty shades of beautiful.
And yet you do not seem to notice.
If only I could take a picture of you,
But I bet the camera would also lose focus.

Because even if a picture says a thousand words,
That's not enough to encompass you.
For you are like a wild flower
Floating in the wind,
Free and full of life.

They are like roses in vases,
Beautiful to look at,
But just there for display.

And even though you might leave,
For now I hope you stay.
