Between You and Me


I never become a man
You never become a woman
I never become you
You never become me
Although I try to stand on your shoes
I still cannot know exactly
What are in your mind and how you feel
Although maybe you try to read me
You still cannot know precisely
What I feel and what are in my mind
What is important for you
Maybe it is not important for me
What is important for me
Maybe it means nothing to you

I don't know you and you don't know me
But can't it be an amazing foundation
To understand each other
I will let you do whatever you want
As long as it does not harm you, me or anyone
Just as I want you
To let me do whatever I want
As long as it does not harm you, me or anyone
And it will be an additional value
If we support each other, help each other
Why not?

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
