Ok so....
Here's the truth
Yeah I like you
But I'm afraid
Of getting hurt
Like last time
And the time before....
Yeah and the time before that too
I'm afraid of hurting inside
Afraid of taking the leap
The plunge
The next step
Whatever you wanna call it
It's over rated
Maybe
To me
But yeah
I like you
And I think about you
And what you could be
To me
I'm afraid of what you might take
Of what I might feel
When
You hold my hand
Kiss me for the first time
Maybe say, "I love you."
Other people have said that
Before
I smiled, blushed
Said, "I love you too."
But then I got hurt
It's been a while
So maybe it's time to heal
The little cracks in my heart
Ok so...
Yeah, I like you
