    How do I know
    How will I understand
    How could this be
    What is the plan

    I'm in a daze
    lost and comfused
    in search of an answer
    of what I should do

    I want to give you my heart
    but I am so afraid
    that someday the gap we've bridged
    will eventually give way

    I don't need a part time love
    but a full time soul
    one that will fight to keep things together
    one that will never go

    I know I can't see into the future
    while standing on today
    I am willing to take a chance
    if you'll promise me,
    if just for now, you'll stay

    I know this sounds crazy
    and I am sorry, I just have to know
    I have been to hell and back
    for falling in love with ghosts

    You don't have to solve the puzzle
    all I ask for is a clue
    is there a furure for us
    please tell me before
    I fall in love with you.

    sleepless and wondering

    I liked the whole thing. But how you ended it was great! I don't wanna know exactly how it's gonna be, but at least tell me that I'm not gonna break my own heart....

    Lovin this.
