Reeling

Do you want to do this again?
I knew when we started,
I wanted to be more than a sin.
And I did see
The pitfalls in front of me
But I laughed and filled them in.

I want to see you again
I know it’s silly,
But I cannot hold it in.
And I can see,
The pit calls out to me,
But I close my ears and grin.

‘Cause it’s real.
Really, really real.
Yeah, the feeling.
It’s really, really real.
Real!
It’s really, really real.
Yeah, the feeling.
It’s really, really real.

I might kill the dove.
Not ’cause I want to,
But because I don’t know love.
But I can see,
You might carry me
Out of this empty hole I’ve dug.

‘Cause it’s real.
Really, really real.
Yeah, the feeling.
It’s really, really real.
Real!
It’s really, really real.
Yeah, the feeling.
It’s really, really real.

I might mess this up
I got a notebook full of nightmares
And I’m caught up.
But I can see
Your world in front of me
So vivid!

I’m dumbstruck ’cause it’s real.
Really, really real.
I got a feeling.
It’s really, really real.
I got a feeling.
Really, really real.
I got a feeling.
Really, really real.

It’s real!
Really, really real.
I got a feeling.
Really, really real.
