The One

I want to be the one who makes you smile
I want to be the one you turn to
when you are happy
when you are sad
when you are upset
when you want to laugh
I am not the one
I want to be the one you think of
when you go to sleep at night
want
need
miss
You are that to me
but I am not the one
I want to be the one who makes a difference
to you the way you do for me
I am not the one
but if you ask anyone who
lays awake at night thinking about you
dreaming about you when she's asleep
tormenting herself when she's awake
listening to silly songs looking
for meaningful references
listening to your words
reading between the lines looking
for permission to love
waiting in vain for a train that won't come
I am the one.
