Back Again

I couldn't tell you on my own
But I wanted you to know.
Know what I've kept hidden all these years
The depths of my heart exposed.

I do not know if you know
If you do, you do not say.
It's a question that comes between us
I wish it weren't there.

Why are you a stranger?
Why dont you meet my eyes?
I know I cant meet yours,
wondering if you know.

At least please say a word
Tell me why you frown.
You never talk to me again
as if I were your friend.

Am I your enemy now?
Me, once your best friend?
If it is my love that keeps you away,
I'll not love you, to have you again.

I'll pretend my life did not change its course
The moment I fell for you.
I'll keep the mask I had for so many years
Hiding the truth of my heart.

Just come back to me,
Smile at me, confide in me like a friend.
For I'd rather have you, your friendship
Than ask for your love, and lose you.

I love you so much, I'll stop loving you,
Just to have you again.
If my love makes you frown, I dont love you.
I'd stop my love to see you smile again
For your happiness alone.
