I know I barely know you
We've only said 'hello'
And in some silent greeting
I thought I saw you throw

I know I'm rather quiet
whenever you're around
I choke on all my words
I hardly make a sound

I know I must seem silly
Just staring at my feet
Some dim and dusty corner
where I'm swaying to the beat

And I know it's kinda crazy
the way you make me feel
turning shades of grey
and color you make the common so surreal

and yeah I know you barely know me
there's no way that you could tell
you were summoned from my dreams
you're a wish called down a well

and I know that you may doubt me
when I say that you're the one
that I been waitin' all my life for
now it's only just begun

but I know you might not want me
in all the ways that I'm wanting you
so I try to shove such thoughts out
and I pray this isn't true

cause I know that in your absence
the hole that would remain
would swallow me up completely
how could you make me feel such pain

and I know I seem dramatic
but you've really no idea
of how bleak it would be without you
or how dark the night would seem

yeah i know there's nothing colder
than somewhere without your fire
and without the breath you bring me
I would hastily expire

and yet the hearth I thought your heart was
I mustn't on its warmth depend
and the air that I've been breathing
I shouldn't think I'll ne'er expend

cause i know this song I'm singing
it don't mean a goddamned thing
for if you love me then you love me
and if you don't then you don't
the end
