When I first saw him,
I first saw love,
Certain is was for me,
So I stretched out my hand,
And desperately tried to reach,
But I was ten feet from it and cried.
When it first crossed my mind,
It wasn’t pushed aside.
I was certain it was meant to be my dream
So I closed my eyes,
And tried to make it true,
But I was ten feet from it and failed.
As I choked for air
And bled all of my blood,
I sought something to keep me alive
And I found my life,
So I held it dear and kept it close,
But I was ten feet from it and died.
