Others greet me with open arms While mine stay crossed Not wanting to say anything They keep talking Interested in everything about me Wanting to know more I ask no further questions And give a quick nod
The words "I love you" are scary They send a shock through my body But I know they don't mean anything As empty as my dreams seem to be Wind whistling 'round my ears Whispering "I love you" Repeatedly in agony
Hands to heart Reach up and back Touch your toes Step back Go down and hold yourself up Chest up Back down Step forward Touch your toes Reach up and back Repeat
Careful to only go as far as you But secretly yearning to go further Maybe you feel the same but are in denial So until I figure it out I'll tread carefully
Suddenly relieved and sleepy Like I've done something huge So silly Something small making my heart beat fast Only because it's you
Will you regret it? R-E-G-R-E-T It It It It It
What should I say? I never know. You always have something to say And I envy that. Start with hello, but then what? Say what's on my mind? How outrageous.
Press send. Or else you'll keep thinking. Or else you'll keep frowning. Or else you'll keep dreaming. Or else you'll keep crying.
Typing...backspace it all. That's no good at all. Don't be a bother. Don't be overbearing.
I pause before I click Unsure of why I have uncertainty I'm scared of how you see me What if you hate me? If I upset you... Probably afraid of nothing But how can I be sure?
