You won't be comfortable with what I'm about to say How you won't acknowledge what you really need It's not the fear of failure that keeps you away It's that you can't imagine the pleasure of succeeding.
I'm praying that you'll come around Because your heart's already true Just take a risk and convince your mind I will accept you at face value.
I want to study every single freckle Because they promise more days in the sun I want to watch how your eyebrows move When my hair comes all undone.
I'll watch your lips say all the proper things While your eyes can't hide what you really mean They'll give me glimpses down deep inside And reflect on what you're really feeling.
I'll touch your nose with the tip of my own And breathe in what you hold back from me And tell your ear what it wants to hear Until I convince you to trust in me.
I'll trace my finger around your face Especially the lines that frame your eyes Directing me to the places you've been And the ones I'll visit with you in time.
Picturing you now, chin in the palm of your hand Pondering why you sacrifice so much to stay true The universe couldn't shout more loudly at you Just do it now. Take me at face value.
