Why the frown and stiffness
When I pause to speak to others
Don’t you trust me?
Don’t you know
That my heart misses a beat
Only and always for you

Instead of giving me that space
When I talk to others
How I wish you also
Could pause with me
With your hand in my hand
Or safely draped around my waist

My love, I want you to know
I am yours to take
I am yours to have
I want you to know
Even at your worst
I couldn’t let go of you

I want that confidence in you
That you aren’t a gamble to me
Even when I smile at others
At the corner of my eye am watching you
Wishing it was you
That I am smiling at
