I’m scared to admit defeat
Scared to allow you in
Scared to admit feelings
Even scared to be your friend

Scared to tell my heart to stop
Scared to feel this way
Scared of what may go through your mind
Because of what I’m scared to say

Scared to see myself happy
Scared of admittance and then heartbreak
Scared of finding someone to love
Scared of how long it could take

Scared of picturing us together
Scared of my walls crashing down
Scared once I become vulnerable
You’ll no longer stay around

Scared we could grow as one
Scared to see where things could go
Scared you won’t feel the same
If I choose to let emotions show

Scared you thing I’m shallow
Scared you think I never cared
But the truth is I act this way
Because I’m afraid to show I’m scared
