Standing Right Here

You’re the closest thing I have to call home / But you’ll never know
‘Cause I’m afraid that loving you / Will pull me too far from my comfort zone

You’re the nearest that I’ve come to true love / But I’ll never say
‘Cause I’m afraid that loving you / Will only end up hurting me

But even if I could find the words / What good would it be?
You’re so caught up in your ideals / That you’ll never see me

I’m standing right here, in front of your eyes / Where I’ve been the whole time
I’m standing right here, holding my heart / Hoping that I haven’t come this far for you
Just to be sent away / Because you’re afraid, too

If you felt even the smallest of things / Would you ever tell?
‘Cause I would risk all that I had / If it meant I’d have you instead

But even if you were mine to hold / Why would you want me?
You’re so swept up in your own thoughts / That you can’t see what we could be

But I’m standing right here, in front of your eyes / Where I’ve been the whole time
I’m standing right here, holding my heart / Hoping that I haven’t come this far

For you to say it won’t happen / To tell me it could never work
But how can you know if you don’t try it first?

So I’m standing right here, in front of your eyes / Where I’ve been the whole time
I’m standing right here, holding my heart / ‘Cause I don’t have anywhere to go
And I don’t want anyone but you / So please don’t send me away
Because you’re afraid
