What I Won't Ask You

Were I to ask you to dance
Dance with me under the moon
Nobody's watching
Just the stars in the sky
What would you say?

Were I to ask you to walk
Walk with me along the dry creek bed
Nobody's watching
Just the crickets in the grass
What would you say?

It would be a different feeling
Something before never expressed
A leap, a jump
A stuttering sentence
That I try to tell you with all of my heart

Were I to ask you to climb
Climb with me up to the clouds
Nobody's watching
Just the birds in the trees
What would you say?

This is a place we've never reached
Something never indicated
A tiny smile, pressing hands
A timid word
That I try to tell you with all of my heart

I won't ask you to dance
I won't ask you to walk
I won't ask you to climb
It would change us
The way we are

I'll just keep our words safe in my mind
Not clutch them in my heart
I don't want to kill our love
Our love so innocent
Pure, the way we are
You are just my brother
I'll keep you that way
