Dare I speak, give hope a name?
Or will I fail, and be filled with shame?
Dare I try, and voice my fears?
Be rejected, and cry endless tears?
Dare I say the truth I feel?
When reality is all too real?
Dare I break our easy bond?
And put walls between us, tall and strong?
Dare I say what I've only thought?
And sacrifice all that I've bought?
Dare I let it all come out?
And let you show what love's about?
Dare I show this tender heart?
In hopes that we will never part?
Dare I risk all that I know?
Should I just do it, let it go?
Not today, not right now
I've decided; to fear I'll bow
The silence thick will leap to stand
As I dream of taking your hand
But sadly, you will never see
Just how much you've taken me
