I grew my heart numb for years, shying away from peers.
Of course I've lived for my fears and with love it interferes.
So to protect my peace I chose to cease.
Cease to respond to warmth,
Cease to respond to love.
My heart kept climbing,
It kept calling,
Yet I left it falling.
Until I experienced your warmth, your sweetness;
Yes your fragrance got me informed.
Tearing down entrenched beliefs with such relief.
From then on my mind was made,
Causing old thoughts to fade.
I knew this was home, with no doubt whatsoever, I just knew.
So I'm here to stay only if I get a chance...
a chance to love and be loved,
a chance to long and be longed for.
A chance to prove that I mean this with all of me.
You mean a lot to me than these words could ever express.
