I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders
Sometimes it feels like carrying a boulder
It weighs me down, but I dont know how to ask for help
Ive always had to do things myself
I want more than anything, someone to share the burden with
But I need you to show me its ok to love again
Too many times Ive opened my heart
Just for it to get torn apart
Stomped on, shredded, then taped back together
I hope with all of my soul that this time is better
But theres a few parts of my heart I'm holding back
Not because I don't love you, not because of anything you lack
I'm just afraid to let you all the way in
I need you to show me its ok to love again
I want to get lost in forever with you
I try to convince myself you won't leave me too
You're everything that I adore
One kiss from you and I'm dying for more
You didn't break this heart of mine
You didn't put me in this bind
Its unfair to ask you to clean a mess you didn't make
For you to have to fix a heart you didn't break
To ask you to understand if I hesitate
But I'm afraid thats what it will take
The last time I fell, I made a mistake
And didnt realize it, until it was too late
But you'll break these walls, its just a matter of when
All I need is for you to show me its ok to love again
I want to give you all of me
It just may take some time, but you'll see
Just please know, to me this isn't a game
And that my heart melts at the sound of your name
Will you please show me its ok to love again?
