Five Feet Away – For Sam

I feel your eyes upon me

Slightly turned, I catch your smile

Wishing no one else could see us

No more living in denial

Could they ever understand it?

Or accept it once they did?

Can they tell how you’ve regressed me?

To a nervous, helpless kid?

How I sense your soul from distance?

How you make my own heart melt?

Couldn’t take it any longer

Had to show you what I felt

Letting nothing come between us

No opinions, walls, or fears

Laugh away the opposition

As we journey through the years

I won’t waste another minute

Now I know where I belong

You’re my secret, silent savior,

When in love, no love is wrong.
