Or that you might think it was a line.
"Maybe I do think it's a line."
Then you think I'm not sincere.
"I didn't say that. There's nothing wrong with a line. It's like
knocking at the door."
Then you're inviting me in?
"I'm not sending you away."
That's more than I expected.
"Is it as much as you hoped?"
To hope is to recognize the possibility. I had only dreams.
"Dreams can be dangerous."
Not these dreams. I dream of a galaxy where your eyes are the stars,
and the universe worships the night.
"Careful! Putting me on a pedestal so high, you might not be able
to reach me."
Then I'll learn how to fly. You are the heart of my day, and the
soul of my night.
