Same eyes

I once asked a boy to marry me
And he looked at me like I had more heads than a bucket of nails
By marry I meant love
By love I meant ‘could stand to be around’
Being around in silence
Holding hands tightly
Wishing and hoping
Lulling at the moon.
I once asked a girl to marry me
And she looked at me like I had more heads than a bucket of nails
By marry I meant love
By love I meant ‘could stand to be around’
Being around in silence
Holding hands tightly
Wishing and hoping
Lulling at the stars.
You see there’s really no difference
We’re all one and the same
Beneath the same dark sky
Wanting for nothing but the chance
To view those stars and that moon
With someone whom our heart desires.
