In another universe there would be courage
In another universe you wouldn’t be on my mind
In another universe I would have the courage to try
In another universe there would be a sign or a hint to catch your eye
Not solely as we past each other by, or I hold the door open for you to hear your kind thank you.
In another universe I would ask you a question
In another universe there would be an opportunity to know you
In another universe nine months wouldn’t have gone by without us passing each other by
Even when you’re not there my mind behaves like you are
Near or far, I am at a loss
In another universe you wouldn’t rule yet here I sit pondering why I am a fool
Changed the melody, changed the key, yet all the while your eyes are fixed on your screen
Or doing your usual routine as per, in the evenings even on a valentine’s night
You’re always an unexpected sight to see, a thing of beauty
In another universe I would make a move, even to pass a letter or note, an invitation
But the danger is there and I don’t want to disturb or perturb you in anyway
No matter how much our paths cross from the weights to the elliptical machine
To opposite ends of a swimming pool
Congratulations, I dived in because of you.
In another universe you wouldn’t linger on my mind for close to a year.
In another universe I would be free and have to courage to dismiss you
Instead I find myself counting down the days until you come by
In another universe
