Love keeps no score

Oh my God, I’m not ready.

Feel my heart beating steady.

One more dose of indecision,

Sweat drenched palms and blurring vision.

I’m outside, I want in

I can feel it in my skin

I want more breath than I’d decided

I can’t sleep and I can’t hide it.

On this side of omnipresence

I feel like I might regret this

I’m this far from starting over

I’m this close to gaining closure.

Freedom from what I desire

Found my voice but lost my nerve

Bite my tongue to keep from screaming

Close my eyes, pretend I’m dreaming.

I want to fake, I want to break

To feel release, to separate

I’m haunted by this sense of obligation

But love keeps no score

I can’t escape the sleepless nights

I can’t escape the urge to fight

Free me from these unmet expectations

But love keeps no score

I’m not dead, I’m barely moving

Heart is done and unforgiving

Reaching out to gain perfection

Running fast but lack direction

Oh my God, what have I done

Distance from my chosen one

Feel my heart beating faster

Just the start of this disaster

 

With my eyes closed, I can tell you what I know

With my eyes closed, I can see you still

With my eyes closed, I can tell you ought to know

With my eyes closed, I can see your soul

Let this love keep no score
