You ask me if I love you
I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie

And who am I to judge you
Or what you say or do
When I'm only just beginning
To see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
That I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you till the feelings subside

Romance with all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
And through the insecurity
Some tenderness abides
I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within his youth


Oh at times I want to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I want to break through
And hold you endlessly
