Do you hear the words I whisper,
As you turn your head to see her.
Your eyes linger lovingly at her beauty,
A gaze that undoes me with its crulety.
By my side is not where you want to be,
But destiny first brought you to me.
Clinging to belief of our true love story,
I willingly keep us in this purgatory.
Sighing as you finally turn away,
Praying that your heart will not stray.
I catch my breath and look at you,
Finally admitting what my heart always knew.
What am I really holding on for,
When you don’t see me anymore?
