What is peace?
Is it the six hours I'm asleep, when I can't control my dreams
So I'm not dreaming about you?
Is it the seven and a half minutes that that video distracted your name from my lips?
Is it the 35 seconds of sprinting that blocks you from my mind?
But I don't think peace, true peace, is that short lived
Every face I see on the street
I hope it's yours
Every text I get, I'm hoping for it to be your name on my screen
And at night when I lay in bed
It's you I think about until I fall asleep
Sometimes, I wish you'd just leave me alone
Let me have just one thought that isn't you
Because I hate that I can't control it
I like to be in control
But my body
My entire being
Is fixed on you
This whole year and a half with you living in Boston and me in Minneapolis I've had no peace
My thoughts are forever occupied with you
Wondering how your day is
What you're doing at that moment
If you're missing me as much as I miss you
But last night when I was holding you in my arms
I realized what peace truly feels like
And yeah, it scares me knowing I need you so much
But you're my forever
So I guess I'll have to marry you
If only for the peace of mind
