Believe

believe in you
believe in me
believe in everything you do
everything I see

love lies with her bedroom eyes
love cries empty lullabies
love dies with his fading sighs
he buys her vacant hours
with cheap flowers
and half-baked alibis

love sleeps under seamless sheets
love leaps and his heart skips beats
love weeps tears so bittersweet
she keeps him safe at arm's length
saps her own strength
beckons as she retreats

believe in you
believe in me
believe in everything you do
everything I see

love strays outside time and space
love stays in her hiding place
love plays at a breakneck pace
she lays beneath the covers
and discovers
love reveal his new face

believe in you
believe in me
believe in everything you do
everything I see
