It took tonight to realize how much I've grown.
It used to be that every time he kissed me,
I shrunk away in fear.
It used to be that every time he put his arm around my waist,
I had no idea what to do.
It used to be that every time he talked,
I just nodded and went along with everything.
But now it's so different.
Who cares if some people don't like who I am,
because he likes me no matter what I do.
Who cares if I laugh my head off,
grab his head
and pull him closer.
Who cares if people are watching
and we act like we're crazy for each other.
Because that's the only way.
That's the only way to be happy.
And right now,
this is as good as it gets.
