I saw you hurting and I wanted to take your hand,
But I feared rejection and deviated from the plan
I thought if I appeared strong, confident, and independent in your eyes
That would cause your love for me to rise
I have the education, the house, the car, the degree
So why oh why don’t you love me
I’ve changed so much I’ve become a liar
The more I pretend to be something I am not to make you stay
The more and more you push me away
What if I fight the fear of rejection, and allow you to be my loving protection
What if I trust and believe in you my brother, what if I love you like no other
Then would you love me,
Just a question?
I would like to know
I would like to know because, I love you so!
