The Scaredy Cat

Confession

I had dialed the numbers
While being caved in by the walls,
I started to wonder
If you'd be thrilled that I would call,
I let myself suffer
In the thought to risk it all,
With this sound of thunder
I can feel the emotions start to fall

What has happened to the girl
Who was so unafraid to let go?
Had I breathed in so much pain
That I allowed her to lose control?
I used to take in all my pride
And embrace for all the cold,
Yet, I ignore how my heart beats
Because I'm too scared to let you know

I love you so...

I had gotten ready,
Hair curled to the side, laces tied,
Tried to keep my breath steady
Or else the words wouldn't come out right,
That first time when you met me,
Did I seem so nervous inside?
I hope you never will forget me
Cause you're always on my mind

What has happened to the girl
Who was so unafraid to let go?
Had I made so many mistakes
That I allowed her to lose control?
I used to be so full of life,
Born with some crazy in my soul
Still, I'm just too damn scared
And stubborn to let you know

I love you so...

It just keeps on beating,
It's all so loud and clear,
I feel so defeated
For even wanting you near.
Can you just speak the words,
To stop all of these tears?
I'm sorry it's taken me years,
But I would want nothing but you right here

What happened to the girl,
Who was so unafraid to let go?
I guess it's time to find her,
So she can let you know

That I love you so...
