What I'm Afraid Of

Wait for a minute or two

Will you let me ask you

Will you let me tell you

Should I tell you

How scared I am

This all must be a sham

If not, then what is it

That's what I'm afraid of

I feel myself open to you

My heart is staging a coup

On my brain and I'm losing it

That's what I'm afraid of

And this is all over net

Though we've definitely met

There could be a difference

That's what I'm afraid of

I'm falling really fast

More quickly than in the past

This could be worse than before

That's what I'm afraid of

You have girls lined up

And I'm a weak little pup

I'm not as strong as I seem

That's what I'm afraid of

You could just forget

And all this I'll regret

You could move on easily

That's what I'm afraid of

So wait for just a minute

Are you scared the same as I

I can't be the only one on Cloud Nine

Don't you see my fears

I can't let them turn to tears

Are you falling fast as well

I can't be the only one hearing the bells

Will you just forget me

I can't let this be

Is this all a sham

I feel you see me as I am

That's what I'm afraid of.

The End
