I try not to feel it,
I pretend it isn't there,
All these new feelings I have,
I tell myself I don't care.

It's like being awakened from a decade long sleep,
I feel awake to everything around me,
I see everything with new eyes and new hope,
A way of being I'd forgotten how to be.

I long to hear your voice
To laugh with you again,
In your company I can rejoice,
And find shelter from the rain.

I can make no promises,
I can give no guarantees
Can't promise my tomorrows,
Life comes without these warrantys.

So seek comfort in the knowledge
You've got a friend for life,
Someone to ease the lonliness
Someone who'll hold you tight.

I'll be there to listen,
I'll be there to lend a hand,
I'll always be around,
I'll always understand.

Perhaps all this was fated way back at the start,
Perhaps this thing was meant to be,
And I know with your love in my heart,
I am at last set free.
