Rising Morning Star


You deny what you feel, you deny me...
you deny that the connection between us
is reality. If you're not denying, then you
certainly ignore, me, the way I feel,

I just can't take it anymore... You deny
that I'm there for you, though I stayed while
you were broken, you deny that my feelings
are true, thought my heart to you is still open,

You deny my heart, you deny that I'm worth the distance,
though you see I will never give up on you, but when I try
to get close to you you have such resistance...

You deny that maybe,
just maybe I may be enough, you deny my
longing to know you, I've been hanging on
though it's tough. Sometimes I wonder if
I even matter to you, do we even have a chance?

Will I ever be enough for you? Will you ever
acknowledge how I feel, and believe that it's true?
I'm stuck, stuck because I love you, though in
your heart I have no place, stuck because
I still smile whenever I see your face,

I'm broken because you're broken and
won't let me help you mined. I'm torn,
torn because of all the things I want you to know...
torn because I love you, but may have to let you go,
torn because you never tell me how you feel...

I just want a chance, a chance to let you see,
just one chance to be, whatever you need me to be.
I'm lost, lost because I'm in love with someone who's
in love with someone else, broken because I
want their happiness even if it means hurting myself.
You've denied me before so friendship is our
current stance, but I promise I'll make you
happy, if you will now give me the chance? ...
