I'm tired of hiding the way I really feel.

Don't say you don't know what I mean, I know it's real.
I know that when you're home all alone
You say the words that sound all too much like my own.
I know you fight with a fury to keep your chin up, never worry,
But you don't always have to wear that mask around me.
I'm not like everyone else - I don't judge or expose.
You can trust that I'll always be around when you need to unload.

I made a promise and I won't break it
Just because time has taken
It's toll on who we have become.
I'll always be the same girl I was back in your arms.
I'll always keep those words and I hold them close.

On the surface it would seem that you're not living like me.
You've got stability, you're living the dream.
To everyone else you've got your life together.
But I know deep down the way you prefer the stormy weather.

There's an animal inside your soul.
It comes alive whenever we're together.
It roars loud whenever we're apart.
You can try and push it back into the cave it comes from
But we both know that it won't last for long.

I think about you more than I should admit
In polite company, or even to myself.
But I think, not of the memories we shared,
But of the people we are and how we've somehow grown together.
We're no different than we were 10 years ago.
We still laugh at all the exact same jokes.
We still find joy in the little pleasures of life.
You and I are unaffected by time.

I said I'd always be your best friend,
Even when things went sour and our time came to an end.
I believed no matter what, we'd find our way back to each other
Now it seems the time has come to let go of the title we shared
To face, not as friends, but as lovers.
