For a fraction of second I fell in love with him,
But scared of the truth I didn’t let it grow.
I stabbed the emotion and didn’t let it bleed,
I bandaged my wounded heart and faked some glow.
Afraid of the dark and of the words I didn’t want to hear
I buried the letter I wrote,
With all the butterflies and magic along.
I couldn’t bear his No,
Of my unbidden love I couldn’t let him know.
His hello was something I couldn’t afford to lose…
So I made up a story and covered all my cuts and blues.
