If I Told You

If I tell you to close your eyes
If I tell you to stop yourself from listening
If I tell you to believe the sweet lies 
If I tell you it’s no use speaking, 
Would you listen?
If I tell you to let go 
If I tell you to sing loud 
If I tell you to lie low 
If I tell you to stand out in the crowd, 
Would you trust me? 

If I tell you to hold my hand 
and tell you to tread together on any path 
If I tell you that beyond the bend there is no land 
and tell you hence the road is just a blood bath, 
Would you come? 

I know you won’t answer right away 
maybe you will, but it’ll be a yes of humor devoid of sincerity,
It will make me doubt if forever you’d stay 
but I know you will, yet it’ll hold true only if the journey will be one of comfort and familiarity. 
So yes; you would listen, trust and come with me, 
maybe along the way our hearts grow even fonder. 
But alas! I know this is only possible in theory 
and we’re not meant to go together into the unknown yonder.
