I've
seen it in my hands burn, in my heart Seen
it in my past back, in my home But
does it make sense to see her again I?
don't know, I
felt it for some time and, not at all Poison
in my head god, love hurts I'm
not looking for love but, it's hard to resist I
don't recall being this dead She's

the only one lost, the best I had I
found her in a dream looking, for me This
heart's on fire I'll, bring myself Up
to fall and, down again These

arms of mine Don't
mind who they hold So
should I maybe Just, leave love alone You
call out my name for, the love you need But
you wont find it in me These

arms are mine Don't
mind who they hold You're
made for me and, I'll leave love alone You
call out my name for the love you need But
you wont find it in me I've

seen it in my hands burn, in my heart I
found her in a dream looking for me But.
does it make sense to see her again I?
don't know, I

can see the end of what I begun A
tale of a love come, and gone But
now my love no, promises I
won't go falling, in love

    Its about being afraid to love someone

    Knowing that she want to be in love
    she finds people to hold even tho
    there is someone she really loves
    and is calling for her she fights her
    self against true love because she
    has experienced something like it
    and it was hurtful.

    Trying to decide whether or not to stay true to the one you love, you love them, but they don't love you, they just want you, not for who you are, but for who they want you to be you're still going to love them, even though they might hurt you, but they are the only one you'll ever love, you'll stay true.
