He hurt you, she hurt me
Now trust doesn't come so easily
Love isn't the fairy tale it was before
So we're careful, cause we're fragile
We both realize some caution is wise
But we won't really love
'Til we're not scared to hurt anymore

So I open myself to the thought
And the hope and the real
And the fact it could end
But I'm taking the chance
'Cause I know if we don't
Then we might never find this again
And I know that we can't be alone
What we might be together
So I'll give you my best
For what's left of the rest of forever

You need me and I need you
Sharing again isn't easy to do
We've only been able
To count on ourselves for so long
And now taken takes courage
And though I'm afraid it's making me brave
Seeing you struggle to stay weak enough to be strong

So I open myself to the thought
And the hope and the real
And the fact it could end
But I'm taking the chance
Cause I know if we don't
Then we might never find this again
And I know that we can't be alone
What we might be together
So I'll give you my best
For what's left of the rest of forever
I'm yours, forever I'm sure
As forever I've been
I said never again

But I open myself to the thought
And the hope and the real
And the fact it could end
But I'm taking this chance
Cause I know if we don't
Then we might never find this again
And I know that we can't be alone
What we might be together
So I'll give you my best
For what's left of the rest
I'll give you my best for
What's left of the rest of forever
