from Like Clockwork by Color Theory



If I tell you that I love you
It’s just because I can’t hold back
I mean it as a promise
And not just a simple fact
If I tell you that I love you
You know that I’m consumed
When the shadow of your smile
Can fly me to the moon

Words said in passing mean so little these days
They disappear like smoke rings in the air
I want to lift them up above the cliché
Not a line from a romance novel
But a binding contract

Some think of love as one of the emotions
Blowing this way or that way with the wind
But from my tongue it means conscious devotion
Because it’s not just another feeling
Like jealousy or anger

Please don’t feel the need
To repeat my words back to me
I don’t mean it as a question
Just kiss me with your silent lips
And say it with your actions.
