if i speak my mind, will you hear me?
if i reach to you, will you feel me?
if i kissed you, would you love me?
one less moment to break your heart
one less love to tear apart

don't want to be your lover
don't want to be your friend
the spell we've surrendered
so just let me pretend

you don't exist
our connection is fixed
one more arrow to pierce your soul
one more chance to let go

in the mountain song, sing the echoes
in the long meadows, chasin' shadows
in the endless night you whisper endless praise
swear to god that you won't change

don't want to be your lover
don't want to be your friend
faith takes me over
so just let me pretend

you're not real
visions surreal
spirit channels

don't want to be your lover
don't want to be your friend

if i fall in love, will you forgive me?
if i lose my way, will you choose me?
if i change my mind, will you change me?
