You see me here, standing in front of you;
I see you standing there, looking at me.
Behind us is what we have both been through;
Ahead of us is what we’ll do and be.
Six people, any one of whom can make
Life hell for all the others in this room.
Maybe your past will be our poisoned snake;
Maybe who I am now will cause our doom.
And maybe who you want to be will judge
The lot of us and coldly cut her losses,
Or who I want to be will hold a grudge
Because the other five act like his bosses.
Our love will die, unless we have the smarts
To satisfy our past and future hearts.
