I can show you how I'd like to be held
when I crave closeness
and layers of skin still spill space between us.
And I can tell you how many hours
to add to the time you spend away
that illustrates how I feel when
you put days between us.
That silence that lays between us,
when I say too much
and you don't say enough
and I pray to Jesus
that this rift won't cause a split
and that he has the will to keeps us.
I can show you how it feels to love you
I've been working out ways to express
how much of my time my mind invests
I've been learning your love,
just so I can reach you.
and I taught myself my own
so I can teach you.
