True story. An illustration of the two sides of a friendship between two broken people with a touch of romance. Maybe you can relate?
Potentially I see-
Wait! I can’t chase that thought
I can’t stay chaste if I make him my focus
If he spends too much time in my mind- No! I won’t make another soul tie!
I don’t like you.
I’ll try to pray it away
Can’t help but feel you’re the answer
Your faith, love for education, the way you look at kids, and sanctify me is amazing
Some days you seem like more than I could hope for,
Then there’s the arrogance, silence, and insensitive words, laziness, thoughtlessness, and unnecessary wars
Somedays, it’s more than I bargained for
Like I’m your experiment, stuck in a maze, I hate you sometimes!
But I trust you.
but you won’t let me
The door is open, why won’t you go in?
Be my friend.
I admire that you’re trying to protect me
But my hearts already guarded, God won’t let me fall
Yet, your words still really hurt me
I’m not sure if it’s worth being your friend
I care too much about how this could end
Potentially I see…
A sanctifying relationship
I can only be heartbroke if I hope for more.
And yet, I’m still hurt…
I see opportunity.
Honestly there is a lot in common between us
Jesus, teaching, way of thinking and speaking, complementary personalities
Recipe for quick defeat
Pretty girls make graves; I’ve already been this way
Emotion takes things way out of proportion
Love is an ocean and don’t dry up in a day
Still they can say “I loved you yesterday”
Ain’t playing that game again
Ask questions, keep you distant, keep you guessing; question your motives?
Not quite, just challenge them.
I can be a jerk, sure.
I need to.
I need to see where you’re coming from
Cuz you need to see where you’re coming from
I know you do, but truth is sometimes we miss our own deepest motives
That’s why we need community.
I’m trying to see what you can’t quite tell me
No, I don’t know or see it all
But from where I stand, I can see your heart
I’m not alarmed, but the circumstance demands that I be on guard for my sake and yours
You honestly want friendship, but your feelings don’t quite match it
Not trying to manipulate me, I can see you mean it
I just wish that God didn’t make it so complicated
I can’t quite say what, but something from your head to heart is off…
So I’ve got to be cautious until I can tell what
