Maybe Now

I want you to be close
But I want you to be
A million miles away
I want your love the most
So I flinch at every
Cool, casual word you say

Who am I now? No one you know

I tried my best to hide
My identity but
So sacrificed honesty
I had nothing to lose
But this burden so I
Confessed to you openly

Who am I now? Someone set free

Maybe now
I can show you: this is me
All my faults, and flaws, and weakness
In with my strength and dignity
Maybe now
Maybe some years down the line
You will see me
And you’ll wish that you were mine

You say that you’re not sure
What it is you want, you’re
Not sure what you think you need
You might not see it now
But I’m pretty certain
It’s somebody just like me

Nothing’s written in stone. Must I always be alone?

[Chorus]

[Instrumental]

Ah, ah ah ah…

Just what was I
Thinking you were
Never gonna be
(The one for me…)

Maybe now
Maybe now you’ll understand
The one hundred million reasons
We should be walking hand in hand
Maybe now
Maybe some years down the line
You will find me, you will find me…

Maybe now
I can show you: this is me
All my faults and flaw and weakness
In with my strength and dignity
Maybe now
Maybe some years down the line
You will see me
And you’ll wish that you were mine
