Take me, all of me,
That is how my heart truly feels.
Take my heart, for you already own it;
Take my mind, for it thinks of you every moment;
Take my eyes, for they see you everywhere;
Take my ears, for it's only your voice they wish to hear;
And take my arms, for it's you they wish to hold –
I wish to give you my all, even my soul!
Although I wish to give, I am afraid
What if you wish to receive my gift, but fail?
What if I give my heart and it breaks?
What if your eyes see only my mistakes?
What if all I see and love in you is all fake?
And what if you never give back but you only take?
