Why do you look away my love, when I'm standing in front of you? March 9, 1999-January 5, 2000
Naked, exposed, you only you, can know my love is true, only you
Why do you live with another, when I lay down my life for you?
Can another be wanting you more, the way I'm wanting you?
And freely give you away in an instant, for you, only you?
I only wanted one thing in life; I only ever wanted you
In truth I have given my soul, and given it to you
Though I give away my life, my life alone, is you
And then I am devoured, within the lust of you
Tear me open; I've hidden nothing from you
Leave, I am nothing, stay and I am you
If life was built on us, but no it's you
My life stands alone on you,
