Love Hurts, It Hurts to Love

We stand together

I can hardly breathe

You touch my hand

But I shudder at your touch

I know I should love you

Trust you with my life

Because I know you

You won't hurt me

So I pretend

Play make-believe

Look like I can love you

But when it counts

I just cry

The pain is still there

Deep inside

I try to make you understand

It's not you

You try to listen

Pour loving words on me

Drowning me in your love

I SO don't deserve this

I deserve the scumbag I once loved

You're too good

I think I need to breathe

Because love hurts

But it hurts more to love
