Light radiates from all around you,
shadows are right behind me.
You’re heaven sent ,
I’ve had my fall from grace.
You’re strong like Superman,
I’m weak as a fly on the ground.
Still you believe in me.
You still love me.
I wish I could be like you.

You kiss my cheek so gently,
I have your lips printed on my face.
I can’t let you have all of me.
I cry my eyes out,
you’re there to keep me together.
You’re like a masterpiece made by Kahlo,
I’m a drawing left unfinished.
But you’re still with me,
when you should have been left me.
I wish I was that brave.

You’re ready to fight for my heart like a soldier,
I don’t want anyone to have it.
You’re not scared to dive into my ocean of emotions,
I don’t even know what I feel.
You’re not scared to get hit by Cupid’s arrow,
I want to run from love.
I run away because I know my heart will break.
I’m so afraid to run into your arms and surrender.
I’m not brave.

Brave means letting you in.
I’m not ready to let anyone in.
I’ve had my share of heartbreak
and of people telling me that they cared about me
only to stab me in the back.
That’s why my shield is up constantly.
Even though I know you’re far from suffocating me.
Whenever you say,
I love you,
my shield goes down for a short amount of time.
But when I think about my past pain,
my heart is remind about every stab it took.
And my guard is back up.

You trust me so easily,
I can’t say the same about me.
I start to doubt you
because no one has given me what you give me.
When you say you love me,
I believe it.
But still I second guess it.
All I can do is think about why you haven’t
you hurt me.
Didn’t anyone tell you that you’re suppose to?

You wrap your arms around me
and hold me tight with all your might.
I hear your heartbeat in your chest,
it’s the sound that let’s me know
you’re with me.
But I can’t feel mine because my heart
has taken everything from everyone.
I don’t even know if it’s alive.

What do you see in me?
Why are you in love with me?
What did I do to deserve you?
Why do you choose to hold me in your arms?
I wish I could love you like you love me,
but I’m not brave.

You’re ready to fight for my heart like a soldier,
I don’t want anyone to have it.
You’re not scared to dive into my ocean of emotions,
I don’t even know what I feel.
You’re not scared to get hit by Cupid’s arrow,
I want to run from love.
I run away because I know my heart will break.
I’m so afraid to run into your arms and surrender.
I’m not brave.

Believe when I say:
I’m not brave...
