You could be happy
If you only let yourself be
You could be happy if you only let her know
That she’s the one that you think about
Not all the time 
But often enough
Often enough 
For you to realise
That you’ve never been in love
At least not in love in your relationships
Because they were never with her.
You’ve never been in love
Because you hadn’t the guts
To tell her the things that you know
You should have 
That you 
Could have
And that you 
Would have
If it were not
For the fact that you were afraid.
You could be happy,
But you won’t be
As long as you’re quiet.

Listen to Time, Arcade, and Winston Churchill:
