My One and Only True Love

Standing so close I can feel your breath
But you keep me at a distance
You say it's just my imagination, but this silence weighs a ton
The innocence of lust, my one and only true love

My particles, they separate
If I move, I'll turn to dust
Bid farewell to my life for another one; this is all I have become
And you're all I'm thinking of, my one and only true love

And the years, they stagnate softly
And you cry yourself to sleep
And your hateful words bounce off me, they don't affect me
I'm in too deep

I don't know what I did wrong
In many ways, I'm the same person
I'm a constant source of irritation; I get by, but it's been rough
You don't love me enough, my one and only true love

It's all been done to death
So I don't bring it up
You say it's just my imagination, but this silence weighs a ton
And you're already done, my one and only true love
