"Every Time" as written by Anna Catherine Mary Jolley, Brian Steven Harris and Mark Jolley....
I'm afraid I'm starting to feel
What I said I would not do
The last time really hurt me

I'm scared to fall in love
Afraid to love so fast
Cuz everytime I fall in love
It seems to never last

But every time your love is near
And every time I'm filled with fear
Cuz every time I see your face
My heart does begin to race everytime

One half wants me to go
One half wants me to stay
I just get so all confused

I'm scared to fall in love
Afraid to love so fast
Cuz every time I fall in love
It seems to never last

I'm scared to fall in love
Afraid to love so fast
Cuz everytime I fall in love
It seems to never last

But every time your love is near
And every time I'm filled with fear
Cuz every time I see your face
My heart does begin to race everytime

I'm scared to fall in love
Afraid to love so fast
Cuz everytime I fall in love
It seems to never last

But every time your love is near
And every time I'm filled with fear
Cuz every time I see your face
My heart does begin to race everytime

It's everytime
It's everytime
Cuz. . .

Everytime your love is near
And every time I'm filled with fear
Cuz every time I see your face
Could it be that this will be the one that lasts?
The fear does start to erase every time
Oh could it be that this will be the one that lasts
For all my times
Ooh yeah
For all my times

    General Commentits a good song. sometimes you fall in love with somebody who is taken or with somebody who doesn't reciprocate that love. love can be scary and depressing if it falls into one of these categories thats why she is scared to fall in love.

    General CommentGreat song. I'm surprised no one has commented. I've never felt this way, but I can imagine someone who has been burned before has felt this way about a new relationship after the last one.

    General CommentI love this song. There should be way more comments here!!! This is such a beautiful song, its very emotional. Quite sad as well. I can relate to what she's singing about in this song. I've definitely experienced feelings of fear in relation to love.
    Janet is beautiful. Her voice is so soft and gentle.
    There's something innocent about this song - kind of reminds me of her song 'again'.
    Love, love love this song!!!!! its so meaningful and its special.

    General CommentMan, this song reminds me a lot of how I felt before. I used to listen to this song to help me cope! Luckily, I'm not scared to fall in love anymore :)
