Afraid of Love

I’m afraid of things
I can’t even understand
I’m afraid of you
walking around there.

I can say “I’m OK”
when you seem to care
is not that I don’t love you
Is just that I don’t want you to hurt.

I want to tell you things
that I see in my dreams
but every time I try
I just want to disappear.

I tell myself if it is ok
is it ok to love you?
is it ok to be afraid?

I’m not good at many things
but I wanna tell you today,
that I want to explore the world with you
and I don’t want to be afraid
when I hold your hand.
