It's okay to be afraid
For love can mean pain
Safer to hold back, put up a front
Not go after what you really want
But does that not hurt more
Make your heart feel torn
Trying to speak through your eyes
Keeping the words trapped inside
Fear can make it hard to move
Please know it's not just you
But some risks are worth taking
And choices worth making
It's hard to give your all
When you're afraid of the fall
Perhaps falling isn't so scary though
If you aren't falling alone
I know the fear of vulnerability 
But maybe real safety
Is found in someone's arms
Being intertwined with someone's heart
