One and only
2013 won't be perfect without your presence.
Why do you come back for a day, steal my heart away then leave for months of absence?
4 years since we first met and I know it was fate,
But life isn't great enough to create perfect lovers without much waiting.
So I'm debating... whether I'm too naive and unrealistic,
To wait another 4 years to be with you.
I want to love someone else but I don't know how to.
That's the easy way out, I could just move on...
But what about the promise we had agreed upon?
The little moments of me being under your umbrella,
In the wrap of your arm, I become Cinderella with a prince.
And your soft words prints deep in my heart despite distance keeping us apart.
How can I lie to myself when you've always been the one I want to run to.
So can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now to clear all the fears and tears I've had
When the idea of us not being together creeps into my head.
Life still goes on... work, friends and family will keep us busy,
Maybe one day we'll finally have it easy breezy,
Live, love, laugh forever together till we're both a hundred and fifty.
And I'll still be sitting patiently... Letting things be.
I'll be right here waiting for when you're ready to love me.
