I can never show or say how I feel
About the ones that matter
I don't want to become dependent on anyone
For me to say that I care
Is to never want you to leave
When I care
I care
I don't let anyone get close to my heart
But when I do I can't let anyone out
That's hard to deal with because
That means that when you're gone
I can't ever be happy
& I'm always happy
So it's hard to pass
Can't I just say I love you once
& you say it back
& that be the end of it
I just wanna know where I stand
& how you feel
I know that pain is a part of life
So if you're gonna hurt me
Do it subtly
I won't mind
I just don't want it to be
