Exception Proves The Rule

What if I were to sit next to you
Would you want to kiss me?
Let it be easy
Instead of playing cool —

What if our togetherness was fated
From the beginning?
We didn’t fear leaning in
Finding our differences miniscule –-

What if everything since
Was a holding place?
To make us better face-to-face
A long distance relationship school –-

What if we (’ve) matured
Fully trusting each other?
Drop the ego cover
F* the few who are cruel —

What if you were assured
We would do the distance?
Could you drop your resistance
Dare to be the happiest fool —

What if you lived your words,
“Lasting relationships take work”?
Too many throw in the towel *smirk*
Newer (read: don’t know the real you) is not life’s jewel —

What if we embraced togetherness
Safe inside a fortress wall?
Imagine a love overhaul
True happiness, no one dare ridicule —

What if we retained our space
Two wings in the same castle?
Fully entwined without the hassle
Separated by miles, rooms or a pool —

What if we found the balance
‘tween intimacy and independence?
Questioning everything since
That other band from Liverpool —

What if you assume the worst
Put defeat before the horse?
And let it take its course
I’d challenge you to a duel —

What if the world applauded us
Dare to be true to our heart
Or embarrassed by the time apart?
When did you follow the rules?

If you were to sit next to me
I would need to kiss you
It’s nothing new
I don’t know how to be cool.
