I’m afraid to tell you how I feel
How much I love you
How much I care
So many feelings in my heart
So many emotions I want to let out
What would you do if I did?
What would you do if I said I love you?
I search for words across the room as you stare at me
They hang in the air between us
I’m afraid to tell you how much I love you
I wish I could look up and scan your eyes
I don’t know what you would say if I did
Would you tell me that you love me too?
Or maybe you will not repeat it
My words come out all crooked
My voice lacks sincerity as I ask about your day
I die a little every day when I don’t hear your voice
But I’m afraid to tell you how much I love you
Because I’m not ready to know how you feel
