I only want to love you
With all of the love you inspire
In my heart
That’s all I want to do

You allow me to get closer
Then you push me away
Every word I tell you is a lie
When you start to believe they are true

You can’t accept that it’s real
The warmth your body feels
Beside your being lies an honest love
Yet you want to give it up

You’re too scared to be loved
You’re too afraid of being hurt
You’re not brave enough to live pass the past
You’ve convinced yourself that this will not last
Even though the pace seems fast
It’s the natural movement of the bond we grasp

I try to be there
As much as my wounded pride allows me
I shouldn’t be judged
Based on trials and tribulations you won’t let go of

I do speak the truth
When I say all of those things to you
You to me truly mean
Every single letter and their placing

It’s simple and true
I W I S H you could see I’m not a threat

How can we move on
If you’re always afraid
Ask yourself that

How can we become a stronger bond
If you believe I’ll do wrong

All I ask of you is to believe in my love

It really is easy
I’ve fallen in love with you

You are the Meaning.
