I’m waiting all night
for you to end your bad week,
to finally log off, and fall asleep.
I’m secretly singing to you
making sure the lights aren’t too bright.
I love you, I swear to God I’m waiting
until you wake again to see if luck changes.
I’m singing our secret songs again.
All our other lives, don’t compare
to the one we’re living now.
Diamonds never meant much,
but after all this time, it’s time,
time opened your eyes.
I’m the one who loves you the most.
Today you’re going to be surprised.
I’m coming to marry you,
you won’t see me coming at all
because you’ve been way too tired to notice.
Imagine the touching, me there waiting,
come what may, each night your own night.
I could easily take all of this
and drop everything, after all,
I’m the one who loves you the most
jaded or otherwise.
I can’t think of a place
where I’m bent over kneeling
there in the snow asking for a hand
far off and isolated in Alaska.
I swear to God we could go to a crowded city, just listen,
before you pull it away, just listen.
I don’t think I’ve loved another person
more this way. I can’t stop listening
I write words and I know
it’s not all together normal, it’s my curse.
I get stuck thinking of the tiniest things.
I spend entirely way too much time
telling stories to people half way around the world
who are ultra kind to read them,
and I’m thankful. Thank you for your time and attention.
You are always on the tip of my tongue.
Say you’re willing to try, it’s change I know
that makes you sick and nervous.
I understand there are good things coming,
when we change things, I promise.
I’ll be there each night to kiss confidence
upside down or otherwise, I promise
there’s never going to be a better time
for you to wear this diamond
there on your left side, after all I know
I can promise you
love you the most.
