I’m scared of love’s embrace
I have no more defenses
As the hours have turned into days, the days into weeks and the weeks into months, I’ve become more enamored with you.
Sometimes I want to crawl into your skin… to be so close to you that my heartbeat is indistinguishable from yours.
Before you I’d sort of forgotten the excitement of a look, the thrill of an unplanned moment together
It’s amazing the way we talk, what we talk about, the way we laugh, what we laugh about… our differences… our similarities
You've added colour and sparkle and fire to my life…
I’m scared cos sometimes I catch myself counting the hours I’m away from you because I can’t wait to see you again. And then I count the hours I’m with you cos I don’t even want you to leave.
I’m scared cos never have I felt such completeness, such total rapport
You teach me to look… I teach you to see
You make me happy… I make you laugh
You give me records to play… I give you books to read
You've shown me love… I’ve shown you life
I’m scared of falling into the abyss… scared of the blinding brights that could only be proceeded by colours so dark they might blight my very soul
I’m scared cos I’m already loosing my edge
I’m scared to show how much I really care
This is that great leap into the unknown
I’m becoming too dependent on you… I mean sometimes I just want to be part of you, part of the heart that beats inside you
I just want to give all of me and receive all that is you until all the emptiness has been filled with something that is me and you
I’m scared cos right now is a time of flux and uncertainty… a time of mottled grays for us
I’ve never really been down this road before
