is this love i'm feeling?
i had forgotten it's taste
i fear the light that beckons
for the darkness is my home
i've pitched a tent in my hate
and built a fire on my demise
there were oceans waiting for me
i've only drowned in my tears
do i fear your warm safety
or do i fear some damp betrayal?
the dead one still holds my heart
and it's become a voodoo doll
i want to change; heal my wounds
but it's that change that i dread
i don't want to hurt that much again
and i'll lose you eventually anyway
am i so scared of giving me away
that part of me chains me down?
away from you, towards new love?
i'm afraid, but i need this freedom
