In the grand scheme of things, I need to know where I stand.
In the stories that life brings, I need to know the beginning and the end.
I need someone who can read the lines on my hands and the creases on my face.
I need someone who can be my friend together in the safe place.
Who can be my friend?
Who can be with me till world’s end?
Maybe my assumptions have been wrong.
Maybe I’ve been playing the wrong track, the wrong song.
I once believed in eternity.
In everlasting love, in you and me.
Forever is an illusion.
