Verse 1

There I was holding up my shields

To hide a heart that's battered and blue.

You come around, my armor's killed,

What if I mess up like I tend to?

Pre chorus 1

You're everything I've ever wanted.

But happiness is something I've never been granted.

I'm scared luck will strike us before we

Figure out what, where, when, how and who.

Chorus

You don't get why I'm scared, do you?

You're one of those surreal things in life that seem

Just way too good to be true.

I'm afraid I'll wake up, it's another dream,

You don't even have a clue.

You don't get why I'm scared, do you?

Verse 2

Here I am falling way too fast,

When we're trying to take it so slow.

Hurry up? Slow down? Make it last?

Hold on? Try harder? Just let it go?

Pre chorus 2

You're everything I've ever asked for.

But everything I want always walks out the back door.

I don't even know if I'm allowed

This giddy rush of something brand new.

Chorus

You don't get why I'm scared, do you?

You're one of those surreal things in life that seem

Just way too good to be true.

I'm afraid I'll wake up, it's another dream,

You don't even have a clue.

You don't get why I'm scared, do you?

Bridge

I've been left standing in the cold,

When I protested, I've been told

I'm jealous, possessive, crazy, bitter.

And she is perfection, gold that glitters,

His beacon of light in his forest of darkness.

And when I think of mine, I only see your face.

You're my divine light in the bright blue sky.

And it makes me feel so damn terrified.

Chorus

You don't get why I'm scared, do you?

You're one of those surreal things in life that seem

Just way too good to be true.

I'm afraid I'll wake up, it's another dream,

You don't even have a clue.

You don't get why I'm scared, do you?
