if i speak my mind, will you hear me?
if i reach to you, will you feel me?
if i kissed you, would you love me?
one less moment to break your heart
one less love to tear apart

don't want to be your lover
don't want to be your friend
the spell we've surrendered
so just let me pretend

you don't exist
our connection is fixed
one more arrow to pierce your soul
one more chance to let go

in the mountain song, sing the echoes
in the long meadows, chasin' shadows
in the endless night you whisper endless praise
swear to god that you won't change

don't want to be your lover
don't want to be your friend
faith takes me over
so just let me pretend

you're not real
visions surreal
spirit channels

don't want to be your lover
don't want to be your friend

if i fall in love, will you forgive me?
if i lose my way, will you choose me?
if i change my mind, will you change me?

    General CommentIt's actually a very interesting song. It kind of describes a situation I know well. My current gf and I were the best of friends for about 2 months and we both wanted to date each other, but we were terrified we'd lose what friendship we had. That's pretty much what this song is all about. He doesn't want to fall in love because he's afraid to hurt the other person. He keeps denying it because he's so terrified of losing her, he'd rather not have her at all than be with her and treat her badly later.
