WRITER FRED ROSE
Afraid to tell you how much I care.
Afraid I'll need you and you won't be there.
I'd love to take you in to my heart.
But something tells me we would only part.
I loved and lost just one love ago.
I paid the cost and it hurt me so.
A heart gets careless when vows are made.
I want to love you but I'm so afraid
