Just close your eyes
And count to five
Let's craft the only thing we know into surprise

Set down your glass
I painted this to look like you and me forever as we're now

And I'm shaken then I'm still
When your eyes meet mine I lose simple skills
Like to tell you all I want is now

You sing and I'm killed
I'm just not the same
As I was a year ago and each minute since then

My jumper tears
As we take it off
You say you'll sew me good as new and I know you will

And I'm shaken then I'm still
When your eyes meet mine I lose simple skills
Like to tell you all I want is now

And I'm shaken then I'm still
When your eyes meet mine I lose simple skills
Like to tell you all I want is now

    They do not know what "it" is, but it feels right.

    Each moment spent together is etched in their memories. When he closes his eyes he can almost feel and smell her like those times spent together, was now.

    Somehow, he has fallen so deep that one glance feels like he is free falling and he is flying, and when that one glance ends, reality hits him in the face.

    In this reality, nothing is for certain, even the way that they looked at eachother, it is uncertain. Words escape him, but only one thing is for sure, that at that moment in time, she was beside him. That now is even more important than yesterday or tomorrow, is the moment he wants to be in. Now is forever, be it in the past or in the future.

    He fell before, and rose as he did but only to fall again. It is neccessary.

    She says she will be the life of him, and yet she is uncertain of those words said.

    Despite everything, every tear shed on both parties, she knows the answer.

    Yes or no? Despite the answer, he will always have now, every single time he closes his eyes and sees her eyes.
