    Its scares me
    How im feelin you and uh…
    It scares me
    That im wantin you too much
    Oh baby
    If I told you what I want
    Oh maybe
    You would like it and want

    Oh my lips
    Are quivering to yours touch
    And my hips
    Sending quiet signals to ya
    Oh my body
    Wants and knows its not time
    So ill be
    Patiently waiting for the night

    Im tryin
    To take one day at a time
    Id be lyin
    To say I don’t want you in my life
    Differently
    That’s what you are and I like
    Oh baby
    Do you think you’d like to be mine?

    I don’t mean
    To scare you or drive you away
    But I think
    What ive been searching for has came
    And im scared
    Cuz I don’t need to hurt again
    So tell me
    If you just want me as a friend…

    It is a relief to know where one stands one way or another, even though if the answer isn't what one wants, it is scary to imagine it. Liked the way you placed your words gingerly, as to not disturb in a sense.
