It's do or die

I've got to try

I place my hands way up high

Above my head

My bones are chilled

My breath is stilled

And my whole body is filled

With terror

It shouldn't be hard

If I play the right card

Then I can discard

My fears

I try again but I freeze

My heart and brain they just seize

My thoughts blown out with a breeze

And I'm lost

I can only stare

This isn't fair!

But still I care

Enough to try

But I always seem to fail

So I'll let my tears form a trail

Because my heart is so frail

And I've lost

This is not a game

I am so ashamed

I couldn't even ask her name

Let alone her number.
