I don't need falsity--
When I have you.
I don't need lies--
To say you know me.
You are real.
You do know my face.
My wildest dreams
Coming true
Right before my eyes.

You feel as though you can hit me to get my attention--
You can.
You have.
You get confused when you see my face with no glasses--
You realize I got contacts.
You know.

The secrets the other fans don't know,
The private moments,
The statements that you know we can handle,
The tickets,
The invitations,
The reminders to make sure we are definitely coming,
The recognition of us
at concerts and in other states --
No lies.
This is real.
You are real.
