Can’t Judge A Book By Its Cover

You look at me with wide eyes
and wonder
I tell you – you cant judge a book
by its cover
And I’m asking you
to take a moment
Take a quiet moment
and think it through
…I never said
I walked on water
but I can feel
the magic in the air
and I remember
it was never
just a causal affair
And I know I don’t need you
but I know that I want you
I know – that I want you
– until the end of our time
In that moment
when you take,
that quiet moment
and think it through;
let all the bright beautiful light
seep into you
Let the wind
bring you back
to the boy
that held my hand
when we jumped the track
Singing our song
rhythm and rhyme
let it bring you back
to the innocence
of that moment in time
– when I needed you
Remember when
I needed you
– I’m not waiting,
not waiting
…and neither should you
I never said
I walked on water
but I can feel
the magic in the air
and I remember
it was never
just a causal affair
And I know I don’t need you
but I know that I want you
I know – that I want you
– until the end of our time
