If You Only Knew

Here I am

Bold as dawn

Rise and shine

On the horizon

*

The day ahead

Is blazing red

My eyes are fine

Wild visions surprise us

*

Which way do we turn

So we won’t burn

Our bridges

With our intense eyes that defy us?

*

Intentions set and wishes true

As I work to love you

If you only knew

**

Here I am

Holding on

Despised but kind

With my disguise on

*

The day instead

Mistake has shed

My allies were blind

Dying suspicion defines us

*

Which way do we turn

So we can learn

Our privileges

While our bent allies still decry us?

*

Intentions set and wishes true

As I work to love you

If you only knew

*

If you only knew

How much I care for you

Hidden behind behaviour through 

The blackest night and sky that’s blue

My work to love

You may decide untrue

Chances I get to prove to you

Are far and few between

*

If you only knew

**

Here I am

Cold & gone

Defined behind

With what they have their eyes on

*

The day has sped

Straight through their head

My tries denied

Spiteful derision grinds us

*

Which way do we turn

When we just yearn

For a fair image

While they penalise and defile us?

*

Intentions set

And wishes true

As I work to love you

If you only knew

*

If you only knew

How I’ve been true to you
