- What Matters
I gave up on you so long ago and now you’re here again.
I walked away from you way back then and now you’re knocking at my heart wanting in.
I don’t want to remember all the hurt you cause the first time or the second or the third
But all my friends keep telling me to trust you and they don’t believe it can be as bad as we’ve heard.
So here I stand facing you one more time but this one’s different then before.
Back then I tried to run from you but now I just want to know you more.
I’m holding back because I’m so scared, so scared of letting you in.
I fear that if I let you in I’ll start to fall and get hurt again.
But I want to try. I really, really do.
‘Cause every time I look in his eyes all I see is you.
So love, I’m here to tell you that although you make me scared
You can no longer scare me of the ones that I hold dear.
I can let you in and start to get close
And when I fear I trust him more then I do most
I’ll just remember to take a chance and love with all I am
And if I think it’s gonna hurt, oh well, ‘cause I know how strong I am.
I’m strong enough to handle the hurt if that’s what happens this time.
I am strong enough to move on because I’m no longer scared in my mind.
I pray this time is different and that maybe he’s the one.
But if not I’ll just keep trying ‘cause I’m no longer scared,
