I know that you know
that I know, you do
You go through so much
to keep it away from you
The time has come for you
to let me know….
Is it true?
This thing is so powerful
it can’t be denied
So urgent, yet you’re accustomed
to keeping it all inside
To your heart, to your mind,
to yourself you have lied
You struggle with your emotions
pushing them aside
Playing it safe, following that same path
you’ve already tried
The same one that couldn’t keep you
and didn’t hold you when you cried
And now you choose to lock them
all away, to run and hide…
Is it pride?
What exactly is it that
you’re expecting to gain?
Afraid of getting hurt
unwilling to change the lane
Too scared you’ll hit the dirt?
Drivin’ yourself insane
Afraid you’ll get left out in the cold?
Get caught out in the rain…
Is it pain?
And I can ignore it, cause you want me to
and save all I have to share
But I refuse to do what you do,
I’m not like you, do you care?
Are you scared you’ll lose control
of yourself? Afraid that you won’t be
the man that you’ve created yourself
Afraid that you won’t see
the woman that you have come to know
Afraid of you and me…
afraid that we can’t be?
I don’t want you to be afraid anymore
I want you to come to me
The time has come for you to let me know
But the question is
Are you ready?
