I can't control it, I start to shake.

For my fear I will pay the price.

Down to my very core I quake.

The thought of you makes my heart ache.

Your stare is hard and cold like ice.

I can't control it, I start to shake.

My courage is all that you take,

Through my soul your gaze seems to slice,

Down to my very core I quake.

My smile is hard, my calm is fake,

And despite everyone's advice

I can't control it, I start to shake.

In the night, I constantly wake

You're my nightmare more than once or twice.

Down to my very core I quake.

Please don't hurt me, force, or take;

My trembling surrender must suffice,

I can't control it, I start to shake,

Down to my very core I quake.
