And when he smiled, so lovingly,
You knew you were changing,
Your stone cold heart was now melting,
One pebble at a time.
And when he touched you, gently,
You just smiled.
Oh, did it hurt then?
When you knew he was leaving?
Or, were you just embracing
The moment, without grieving?
Did that make you forget
About someone you left
Long before he came?
And when he talked about his love,
Did you reminisce yours?
Or is it him you thought about,
And his lost love of yore?
When he asked about you,
You knew you were ready to tell,
To tell him about all you know,
And all that has bothered you, ever so.
Did you tell him then that you were broken?
Or did you just shed a drop of tear?
Tell me, did you just smile,
And pretended to be just fine?
Did your heart want to cry?
Did you feel like running away to hide?
When he caressed your hands,
You knew you wanted him to stay.
You knew if he just stayed,
You'd heal a little more,
You'd smile for a little longer.
And maybe you'd also laugh,
The laughter that's been missing
From the last few days.
Tell me, did you tell him all?
Did you ask him to stay?
