Risking everything for love without knowing what lies ahead makes one alive for what lies dormant is only dead!

Can't you see who I really am?
Outside a tiger but inside a ram.

Each time I felt her
I was only seeking shelter.
My whole world I was forsaking.
Gave it all to her for the taking.
Can't you see how hard I really try?
Am I to her just another bad guy?
Each time words were left unspoken,
I was protecting a heart from being broken.
A damaged past made me scared of the future.
Old wounds need to be tied up with a suture.
Can't you see what I put on the line?
Everything I am is not really mine.
Each time I hand it to her
what I worked my whole life for.
For me this is quite an undertaking,
especially never knowing what's in the making.
