What's Stopping Me


Complications with saying "goodbye"

I love her

But I still want you to be mine


I will lose you

To thee inner workings of my mind

But I have to let you go, somehow

I just don't know how

The bricks of love

Hit me in my mind

And I tend to die

But that's O.K.

'Cause she will bring me back to life

But is that what I really want?

"How can I be sure"

That "she's the one

And not you?"

I fall asleep better

Knowing I love the right woman

But who's to say who is?

I visit the death of us

To try to bring us into the light

But I know that that is a slippery slope

I know I have to get over you

If I ever do make her mine

But if I ever fail

And you get taken away

Then I was wrong all along

And have fucked up

All over again
