Tripping over my shoes to meet you Stumbling words block my tongue I want to say "I love you"
But I fear you might run If only you knew my true heart The feelings it hides from you If I said these precious words Then what you do ? I can be such a klutz I feel myself shiver and shake I want to say these words to you I fear I'll make a mistake I admit I have been burned By love's passionate flame And sweet tender words Lovely, gentle names But I will try again Even if I stumble and fall Because it is better to have loved than lost Than to never have loved at all
