The scent of you crosses my mind, I remember your air
Your delicateness lingers in memory, the softness of your hair
Torn between reminiscing over the happiness of us that seems real
Or facing the emptiness of us apart and with tearful memories having to deal
With the fact that we never seemed to fit, only worked when apart
Seems like when we break up, it's the only time we connect from the heart
So we play the game…the break up to make up….but how long?
How long can that suffice for the lack of chemistry and overshadow all that's wrong
But I can't deny that when I close my eyes I still hear your soft whispers in my ear
And when the rain falls so heavy, like now, i yearn for your warmth and desire you to be near
It's like a curse that I can't seem to lift, you have a power over my soul
And i can't help but ponder, if we don't work then why can I picture staying with you till I'm old
Maybe I'm a glutton for the pain we cause each other, I'm an addict and you are the amphetamine
If there is no pain, does that mean there is no love? I can't believe that is how it's suppose to be
Can't be intended for us to argue and fight with such force and passionate intensity
Only to swear we don't need each other – and then I look for you and you for me
Each time I say "I've had enough" you come back and sit at my door
And I welcome you with open arms and we both stay for more
Is this how love goes or are you my painful necessity that I can't do without?
Doesn't matter because though we hurt each other – my love for you is never in doubt
Guess that makes me crazy, insane, ridiculous, all the antithesis of my true self
In the end, for you…and only you….I'm foolish
Foolishly In love
