A confession of one-sided love. Based on the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

I can see you sitting there.

The sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,

And you turn to me with such a smile.

Could it be me? Or someone new?

It can't be me you're looking to-

I wonder all the while.

He shows up. He steals your heart

With his good looks again while I fall apart.


And now and then, I would not mind

Another chance, if you'd be so kind,

To tell you that I love you

And try to get it right this time.


You did not deserve to be treated so,

Tortured, lied to, silenced; I know

I can't do much to ease your pain.

I'll give you a bed, a sanctuary,

My food, my care, and, if you'll permit me,

I'll try to earn your love in vain.

But I see the longing for him in your eyes;

What I know him to be, you don't realize.


And now and then, I would not mind

Another chance, a way to find

The words to say I love you

And try to get it right this time.


So dark, so cold your skin must be;

In death, you're trapped, but your soul is free,

But that does little to comfort me.

I finally have you in my arms,

To protect your broken body from further harm;

I care not that you never loved me.

If you won't live, so be it, then.

Beyond Death's door I'll see you again.


And now and then, I lose my mind;

I cannot breathe, I think I'm blind.

All I know is, I love you

And I will get it right this time.
