Of All The Things We Are

from by Katie Buono



I only want to see you if you wear a smile
I can't bear to see you if you're in denial
of all the things you are

But I'm here, I'm gonna see you
No matter what face you wear
I'm sick and tired straining to see you, even though I'm scared of knowing who you are

I come from a place where distance is a weapon to survive
The more I care for you the more my heart says run and hide
Can I see the glass half empty and label you the pessimist?
Of all the things you are I taste a sugar-coated twist

I only want to see you if you want to see me
And if you don't want to see me,
I'll be smiling on all the things you are

I'll see your face when I wake up
And wonder how much you feel
I'm centered in my confusion, I'll tell you what's real
I know how much you are

Of all the things we are, I know how much we are
