inspired by a rough night I had, meeting an unkind visitor named Doubt

I need to know...

I need to know if this is real
All of this - all this that I feel

I need to know you feel it too
That I'm not just a friend to you

I need to know you understand
How I longed to hold your hand

I need to know you'll hold my heart
Promise you won't tear it apart

And you have to know...

You have to know what I went through
To merely get a chance with you

You have to know I'm not afraid
To tell the world that I care
Why can't you just tell me the same?
Just once or twice, now be fair

But you'll never know...

You'll never know I cried at night
I cried for you, for us, the fright

You'll never know I had these doubts
Wishing that I could live without

...And you will never know
The thought entered my mind
That it might be best...
If I left you behind
