Don't tell me lies

That’s not why you’re here
No, you’ve come to send me down that dark path.
“Never again,” I had said -
“keep my feet on the ground,
keep the clouds from my head.”
But you, with your heart on your sleeve
and a child in your eyes,
run to me
like some wild dream;
craving a little stability,
certain that I am what you need.
I feel your gaze upon me
as you look into my soul
and see what my mind denies.
You can almost make me believe
that you’re not in love
with the person you imagine me to be.
Don’t tell me stories
about how you’ve changed,
matured and grown
and are ready to settle down.
Sincere, though you are,
I know why you’re really here
and what we will become.
You’ve made yourself believe
that I’m the answer to your prayers,
but I can’t save you from your destiny.
So, don’t tell me lies
about a future that can never be
and dreams
that you’ve never had.

Don't tell me lies
