I wish I could explore the terrain inside your mind,
So I can learn of all the ways that I can make you smile.
To alleviate the chance of any future mistakes,
And how to fix the ones that I’ve already made.
I wish I could read the things that you say with your eyes,
So I know when you’re happy and before I make you cry.
Because I know it’s hard to say exactly what is on your mind.
But I will try to know even when you’re keeping quiet.
Because I want to love you, I’m done with all these reckless years.
It’s been hard to see them through, but now all I see is you.
And I can be a better man, if you’d give me the chance.
I could learn to love again, I could help to mend your heart.
I wish I could trace the lines around your face,
So I could learn of every difference with every year you age.
Treat you like a subject, something I’ll study through and through
Because I want to be fluent in everything about you.
I wish I could sing you to sleep each and every night.
So I can watch you drift off under these dimming lights.
See you sleep so peacefully, it would put my mind at ease.
And I’ll lay there beside you never wanting to leave.
