And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
Kyla is a name that is synonimous with beauty to me.
I first fell in love with her from a distance, then her words, then Kyla herself. And sooner or later, I fell out of love.
And all I can taste is this moment>
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight
One memory, always in my mind. I dreamed of her. In a field, laughing and spinning, I stood still, lumpen and stupid. She looked at me, brushing dark hair back from her eyes, and "Aren't you going to dance?"
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
And every time I speak to her, I remember to smile and be friendly, nod in all the right places, and pretend it isn't my oblivion she talks about.
