'Down, down in my bones somewhere I'd never have known, right at the back of my head...'
Well here he was, sitting across the war room trying to avoid eye contact with her, he knew it would always have ended up like this; he should have never got himself involved. The untouchable woman and the womanizer, what was he thinking? Why did no one try and stop him?
'It hit me like a beam of light, hit me like a hook of the right and I could have fell to the floor...'
He knew deep down why it had happened, she was beautiful and he was glutton for punishment. He could remember when he was younger when people told him that if he played with fire he was gonna get burned but they never specified if this included the women he fell in love with.
''Cos you talk to me and it comes off the wall, you talk to me and it goes over my head. So let's go to bed before you say something real, let's go to bed before you say how you feel...'
In the half light of the projector she was beautiful, truly wonderful. He loved every inch of her, he didn't care if he could get burned, or if she would break his heart, he wanted her, more than anything else in the world.
'Cos it's you oh oh it's always you oh oh and I always knew oh oh it's you...'
He had known from when he had first set eyes on her she was the one, untouchable or not. He would be with her or die trying. Even when her words cut him deeper than she realised he would still be there for her, no matter what she did, no matter who she loved in return he would love her.
' I try my best to unwind, nothing on my mind but you, oblivious to all that, I'm hanging one to what I don't know...'
But that was the danger with love, you could fall out of it so quickly...He felt he had taken enough, he had chased her enough, she just wasn't getting the message...He remembered a book she had read, it was old and dusty a romance novel no doubt, but he had spent some time reading it and a word had popped out at him, unrequited.
'So lets go to bed before you say something real, lets go to bed before you say how you feel...'
He had made up his mind, he couldn't pursue her anymore, and it was do or die in his case.
'Cos it's you oh oh it's always you oh oh I always knew oh oh it's you...'
He couldn't carry on, he couldn't keep going around the vicious circle.
'Yeah it's you oh oh it's always you oh oh I always knew oh oh it's you...'
He needed answers from her because when she played with his heart it hurt him, more than she could ever now, and it was his fault for letting this game go on for so long
'Well It's you oh oh it's always you oh oh I always knew oh oh it's you...'
He caught her eyes across the table and stood up, finally catching everyone's attention,
'Well I knew...'
He turned to leave without saying anything, she wouldn't miss him anyway.
'Well I always knew...'
His boots echoed in the cavernous hallway, he would've smashed something if he could, he could
Feel the white hot coil of anger writhe up inside him.
'Yes I always knew...'
He heard a second echo and turned just in time to catch the person that flung themselves into his arms burying their head in his chest,
' oh oh it's you.'
Like he said, he always knew he loved her and maybe this time she could return his feelings instead of playing with his heart, he slowly wrapped his arms around her holding her close until she pulled away looking up at him through her white bags with emerald eyes.
He always knew.
