Guessing (Draft -2)

Guessing (Draft -2)

Oh a lot less guessing
when you tell me directly
that you love me like an essence

Oh it’s best if it’s no jest
’cause I’ve been thinking
I’ve been hoping
I’ve been knowing

Tell me that you know me
tell me that you love me

Tell me
tell me
tell me

tell me that you know me

do I
do I know you

do you know me

It’s been so hard
it’s been so easy

Tell me
tell me
tell me

Tell me what I know

Sing me

It’s been so hard
it’s been so easy

Can we talk about music
just because I love your voice

and if you’d teach me to sing
I think I’d know you better

Tell me
tell me
tell me

Tell me that you love me
just because you think
I’m good at guessing

and I’m guessing
you’ll want to mess around with me

Tell me
tell me
tell me

And there’s something you know
something I know

I know you
you know me

Tell me
tell me
tell me

You, you, you
I tell you everything

If you knew me
you’d cry
and it would be
so good
just because
I’m in you already
and you know me

just guessing.
