A man confronts his feelings for a woman that he knows he shouldn't be in a relationship with.
Originally performed by a man, but this is open gender.
I want you to know I still love you. We have something amazing that no one else would understand. And I wish I could just leave everything behind and go with you but I can’t. I can’t pretend anymore.

Because if it was —I mean, I’m happy. We’ve got issues but we’ve worked through them before. I mean we kind of worked through them. It’s not perfect but what relationship is these days? Sure it requires sacrifice, but nowadays what doesn’t? We’ve built something, and sure it’s not perfect, but it's ours. And that’s something, isn’t it?
