Sweet love, sweet love
Trapped in your love
I've opened up, unsure I can trust
My heart and I were buried in dust
Free me, free us

You're all I need when I'm holding you tight
If you walk away I will suffer tonight

I found a man I can trust
And boy, I believe in us
I am terrified to love for the first time
Can you see that I'm bound in chains
I finally found my way
I am bound to you
I am bound to you

So much, so young
I've faced on my own
Walls I built up became my home
I'm strong and I'm sure there's a fire in us
Sweet love, so pure

I catch my breath with just one beating heart
And I brace myself, please don't tear this apart

I found a man I can trust

And boy, I believe in us
I am terrified to love for the first time
Can't you see that I'm bound in chains
I finally found my way
I am bound to you
I am bound to

Suddenly the moment's here
I embrace my fears
All that I have been carrying all these years
Do I risk it all
Come this far just to fall, fall

Oh, I can trust
And boy, I believe in us
I am terrified to love for the first time
Can you see that I'm bound in chains
And finally found my way
I am bound to you

I am,
Ooh, I am
I'm bound to you

    When you get hurt, especially by a family member... You tend to have trust issues off the bat as you enter your first adult relationships. Having a ''broken'' relationship with the one person you should have been able to trust with your life, forever alters you in many ways. Being the victim of a failed parental-child type relationship, left me to feel very suspcious and scared of nearly everyone & their motives.
    As un-trusting as i became of ppl, as i grew into a young woman, i found myself seeking solace, protection & trust in the opposite sex where i failed to find it in my life before.
    This song has special meaning to me b/c it's very personal on so many levels.
    I am blessed to have my husband of nearly 20 yrs & thankfully, he turned out to be my best friend, collegue, lover & partner in crime.
    Don't the worst experiences make the most amazing songs? It's nice to know your not alone and that someone understands how you feel. Love alone is scary, unpredictable as well as completely necissary to live a full and happy life.
    My apologies for the long post, but i had to express my thoughts on this song. I'm sure it hit home with many as it did with me. To hear an artist sing with so much truth & passion, no way this performance wasn't an honest rendition of true past events. But, you don't have to relate to it as personally as i did to enjoy it. Well done xxx-tina & all who were involved in this production...!!! Sher~ashland, ky.

    She has found someone that she can actually trust and believe in after a really bad breakup; against her better judgement and being scared of getting hurt again.

    Someone broke her heart... , then someone new came along and taught her how to love.. , although she's scared shes learning what it means to have someone love you again... (:
