What Am I To You


When I'm out of view
Does your heart ache
When you lie awake
If only I knew

When you lie awake
Sleep give and take
Anticipating delight
Inert passions ignite
Burning at the stake

Inert passions ignite
All through the night
The head or the heart
Cryptic as abstract art
Not at all black & white

Cryptic as abstract art
Donkey before the cart
Or all ducks in a row
Feelings run to and fro
Victim of Cupid's dart

Feelings run to and fro
Hold on tight or let go
Fickle finger of fate
Fragile emotional state
Young love nouveau
