I’ve only lived once
One mind, one body, one spirit,
But with these two hands,
these ten fingers,
I’ve touched you now.
Try and forget; try and avoid me
(you don’t know me and I don’t know you)
but I swear, turn away now and you’ll only live once.
Look into these eyes
This isn’t a joke, this isn’t art
It’s me trying to connect with you
Across the stage, across millions of air molecules,
Across the electrons that will keep us apart no matter how close we think we are
But trying anyways
To make this life more than just something that’s lived once,
To live just one more time in your thoughts
You’re not an audience, you’re my muse, my lifeline, my savior
And as I stand here
And you sit there
And we know each other better than lovers
We’ve lived once more.
