scared to love

i sit at the table with jameson

trying to write clever verse

not knowing how to think or feel

you're gone and that makes it worse

i'm scared to love you in case i scare you

a dream come true, i flinch at my fear

but when i feel you i know that i love you

a dream so real as though you were here

i laugh at what i've just written

the music stops and it's quiet

in the silence i smile at a memory

and i remember to make it all right
