Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I'm leaving my life in your hands
People say I'm crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance

Liz and Alex have been my only close friends for as long as I can remember. Now I have three new friends, including Michael. Michael... who everyone thinks I'm crazy to be with. I don't buy it. We were meant to be together. That's just the way it is. I didn't ask for this, but I'm not willing to let it go, either.

How you got me blind is still a mystey
I can't get you out of my head
Don't care what's written in your history
As long as you're here with me

How did he get to me so quickly? I don't know. I've prevented myself from getting close for so long... and he's always been there, I just never really knew him. All of a sudden, he was a part of me.

I don't care who you are
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are
Where you're from
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me

I don't care if he killed Pierce! He'd never hurt me. It doesn't matter if he's an alien. He's *my* alien. I still want to be with him, even if he's in danger, even if he thinks *he's* dangerous. He needs me.

Every little thing that you have said and done
Feels like it's deep within me
Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
It seems like we're meant to be

Michael never understood. It wasn't the flowers and the romance I wanted, it was the *love.* I wanted to know that he loved me, without a doubt, without a hesitation. Now I know, but he won't let us be together.

I don't care who you are
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are
Where you're from
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me

It doesn't really matter. I'm starting to realize that. Alien human, it's all the same. Michael is all I care about. He's trying to protect me, but that's not what I want or need. All I want is his love.

I've tried to hide it so that no one knows
But I guess it shows
When you look my in the eyes
What you did and whre you're comin' from
I don't care as long as you love me, baby

I just want him back. It's not too much to ask for. I'm not afraid of him, or what he's done, what he might do, or what he might be involved with. I'll be at his side, no matter what.

I don't care who you are
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are
Where you're from
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me

He loves me. I love him. Nothing else matters. I know that, and, soon, Michael will know that, too.

End
