a little more

You'll never see-
the courage i know
its colors' richness
won't appear within your view
i'll never glow,
the way that you glow
Your presence dominates the judgements made on you

But as the scenery grows,
I see in different lights
the shades and shadows
undulate in my perception
my feelings swell and stretch
i see from greater heights
i understand what I am still to proud to mention
-to you

You'll say you understand
but you don't understand
you'll say you'd never give up
seeing eye to eye
but never is a promise
and you can't afford to lie

you'll never touch
these things that i hold
the skin of my emotions
lies beneath my own
you'll never feel
the heat of this soul
my fever burns me deeper than i've ever shown
-to you

you'll say don't fear your dreams
it's easier than it seems
you'll say you'd never let me fall
from hopes so high
but never is a promise
and you can't afford to lie

you'll never live the life that i live
i'll never live the life
that wakes me in the night
you'll never hear the message i give
you'll say it looks as though i might
give up this fight

but as the scenary grows,
isee in different lights
the shades and shadows
undulate in my perception
my feelings swell and stretch
i see from greater heights
i realize what i am now too smart to mention
-to you

you'll say you understand,
you'll never understand
i'll say i'll never wake up
knowing how or why
i don't know what to believe in
you don't know who i am
you'll say i need appeasing
when i start to cry
but never is a promise
and i'll never need a lie
