Eyes Wide Open - Gotye
For the special woman in my heart:
My eyes are finally wide open and I can see that you’re the only one for me. I’m abandoning past lovers who have lingered for far too long. I’m moving on with you into the unknown. Except I’m not afraid of not knowing what is going to happen, because I know whatever we do and whatever we become, it will be a worthy life-transforming experience. You bring a comfort to my life that I never had before. With you, the waters are calm and continually flowing. I never had to chase you, nor convince you, nor seduce you. We just naturally gravitated towards each other as if ordained by scientific fact. The universe keeps bringing us together in creative ways, sending little signs of how we are meant to be. I always sought to feel completely at peace with someone because I never cared for the roller coaster of emotions that exists in the realm of romantic movies. Conflict is not my thing, I don’t care for it nor seek it. And now I have you, my true embodiment of zen. I only want to focus on you, and you alone. Because, unlike with most women in my life, you enthrall me to no end. My eyes are wide open and I can see that our story is not a cliche forgettable Hollywood love story; which involves crying, desperate declarations of love, heartbreak, and heart-mending. Our story is quite the opposite, it’s actually a light-hearted Shakespearean comedy, which from the beginning to end, no matter what happens, it is the funnest and most profound time of our lives.
