I've been hurt too many times
I've told myself enough
I didn't want someone in my life
If all I'd get was a broken heart

But then you came and said hello
You walked into my day
You found your way into my dreams
And everything began to change

What's this feeling inside my heart
A long forgotten memory
A warmth is spreading deep within
But still I try to resist

I wear a mask to disguise myself
But still you find my soul
When you hold on tight, not letting go
I lose my sense of control

And now I know
What it's like to feel
To open my heart
To fall and still
Not be afraid
And not push you away
You taught me
How to love again

I run from you but you follow
You refuse to let me hide
You guide me from the darkness
And heal me with your light

You whisper words that promise
A love so deep and true
I can't believe this is happening
But I'm falling in love with you

All the ways I tried
To keep you away
But, you kept coming back
Ignoring me when I said
This wasn't what I wanted
But you said it was what I needed
I thought I'd left it behind
But you made it easier to find
This joy, this smiling me,
You've changed who I want to be

Now I know
What it's like to feel
To open my heart
To fall and still
Not be afraid
And not push you away
You taught me
How to love again
