If Only It Were This Easy

Hope it relates to some of you.
I want this to work, I want us to work,
I want to build up something better,
I want it to be better than it was.

I want you to be afraid to lose me,
And I want to be afraid to lose you.
I want you to smile at me for no reason,
And I want you to be the reason I smile.

I want to look at you and know you will be mine and only mine,
I want everyone to be jealous but I don’t want us to get jealous,
I want there to be enough trust, we won’t have to get jealous.

I want you to know my family,
And I want to be a part of yours,
I want to be able to go out in public holding your hand,
But I also want to have nights,
Where we snuggle up on the couch together.

I want to have fights because then I know,
We both feel this is worth something,
I want you to trust me and to be honest with me,
And I want to be honest with you and be able to trust you.
I want you to tell me when something is wrong,
And I want you to know when something is wrong with me.

I want to fall asleep to the sound of your voice over the phone,
And I want to wake up to an "I love you" text,
I want the long meaningful texts,
And the ‘good-morning beautiful’ messages.

I want to have ‘I love you more’ fights,
But when you say it, I want my heart to flutter,
I want to know you love me.

So you really want to fix things…
Because I’d love to…
Because in all reality I just want you.
