The words:

To be frank I feel miserable thinking about you without you
I should be elated to see you but I fear it could make me more blue

When expectations are not met
Do not fret, you said
And I’m a diamond in the rough
Can you see me, my love?

I swore to never say never or trouble in paradise
Kiss me through your eyes
Barefoot I’m walking on eggshells to be near you
When will you realize?

I’ve been watching the clock now for what seems like ages
Journal pages
Baby we’ve been trying to relate so long
Feels like we’re on pause
Is it a lost cause?

When feeling’s hurt or times get rough
Is love enough? (enough)
And all I’ve wanted from the start
Sooth my burning heart

In this heavy chest
My heart beats for the east
But it longs to go west
