imagine me and you

They tell me I'm dreaming
that I'm just falling in love with my imaginary friends
reaching for illusions in the dark
because my soul is sad
and my heart is lonely

I've been falling in love with pain
longer than I can remember
addicted to the adrenaline
telling myself this time I'll reach beyond
the disappointment of unrequited affections
but it's always the same
when you fall in love with dreams
that can't exist beyond the pre-dawn hours
too fragile to withstand anything brighter than starlight

Don't you know I fell in love with you
before I ever knew your name
my ribcage fluttering with panicked birds
every time I snuck a glance in your direction
and I wanted to hate you
for the weakness in my knees and the way
my words fell out all wrong
when you spoke my name for the very first time

Don't you know I've been waiting
for you to stop looking at the sky long enough
to notice me beside you on the ground
our bodies broken from the fall
when we used to be angels
though the more I know you the less I have faith
in the purity of heavenly creatures
with smiles so bright they can burn your soul

And they keep telling me I'm dreaming
that I'm just falling in love with my imaginary friends
when all I did was fall in love
with the illusion of you
