Dolly Parton – Teach Me To Trust lyrics

Maybe because it's too good to be true
Maybe because I want it so much
Maybe I fear you don't really mean it
For I feel I'm never enough

But I want you more
Than I ever wanted
Anything I can recall
But something inside
Keeps saying you'll hurt me
Do I dare to trust it at all

Teach me to trust
Darling you must
Or else I'll go out of my mind
When I'm not near you
I always fear you
Have somebody else on the line

Is it a fear
Or is it a knowing
A jealousy born out of truth
'Cause I watch you flirt
And it's how you embrace
Them with your eyes
That say I could lose

Teach me to trust
Make me feel loved
Tell me I've no need to fear
Just make me feel safe
Whatever it takes
Tell me what I need to hear

'Cause I need to feel
Important and special
Your cherished and only true love
And sometimes I think
I'll die from this feeling
If you don't teach me to trust

Can't you reach me
And teach me to trust
