Music and Lyrics © Matthew Ebel
So if I told you I was crazy would you care?
Or would you understand the weight I’ve had to bear?
Though you might think we’ve just met
I swear I’ve seen you everywhere.
I’m not sure who’s the stalker here,
I think there’s blame to share.
See I’m not what you would call an open book,
but if you keep an open mind I’ll let you look.
You could say that I’ve got issues
like a cop dating a crook,
that I’m lost like Peter Pan
or that I’m mad like Captain Hook.
Though I might seem forward,
you have no idea what it took
to even talk to you.
And even then, my body shook.
And I feel like I’m a million miles away.
We both wake up in different worlds each day.
Even though you’re right beside me
you’re a stranger lost in space
and I feel like I’m a million miles away.
You don’t seem like someone who believes in fate.
I don’t either, but that’s probably our mistake.
I could close my eyes and run
but you’re on every path I take.
You’re like a kind of gravity I can’t seem to escape.
It’s a first for me: For once I’m thinking twice,
so can I beg from you some personal advice?
There has got to be something
that’s pulling strings throughout my life.
Am I dancing to the music
of the damn Pied Piper’s fife?
Is it God or just an author
with a cliché plot device
to keep me wandering?
If that’s the case, that isn’t nice.
