My first reaction is to call you
To write, to invite you to spend the night
But I temper my passion
I'm actin' like "That shit don't faze me"
"Not waitin' all day, please"
I mean, I guess... maybe
See my mind's been occupied
With thought of you
There's a line cause I've been
Taking my sweet time
As I start to realize that
This may not be a setback
Just tryin to get my breath back
If I could give love without hesitation
If I could live life without speculation
If I could feel without fear what comes
Natural when I'm near you
Then I would do it
You know we've all heard
"Don't Stop Believin"
Yet I give up my freedom
For logic, caution and reason
And then I start to stifle my feelings
Cause maybe they aren't the real thing
And there's a chance I might feel pain?
So I run from the memory
Of the time that you spent with me
And the sweet possibility of
Me feelin' you feelin' me
The butterflies are no longer breathin'
Cause I've been squeezin'
My dreams til they're leavin'
If I could live life without hesitation
If I could give love without speculation
If I could speak from my heart
Even though it's just the start
Baby you already mean the world to me
You mean the world to me
So forget about the lessons
That felt less than necessary
And whatever might have scared me
'Cause it's probably what prepared me
To be open to the people who will love me
But I barely let them in before I end it
And I push them out again
I bring about my own undoing
Ignore the multitudes who are wooing
I wanna take you out
Treat you right
Give you space
Hold you tight
Dance with you
Call you mine
If I could, If I could, If I
If I could, If I could, without
If I could, If I could give love
