i swore i wouldn't fall
locking up any thoughts of emotion
any feel of affection
closing off to anything that might be
it's safer that way

when i found you
it had started out as fun
just simple lust with a hint
of flirtation
but it's turning into so much more

i'm not ready for this
but the alternative is not acceptable
giving you up is not something
i want to do
so i'm holding my breath
ready to plunge in again
wondering what will happen
this time

how will i save myself
if it all goes bad
