I've never been as good at this as I flatter myself to be
I don't let on how scared I am, most people never see
I'm telling you this because you're close to what I'd like to be
Do you understand what you're bringing out in me?

I'm so afraid to need you
You're so very far away
I'm so afraid to tell you
I'm afraid of what you'll say
And I'm so afraid to have you
I cannot run away
I need you so bad
I love you so good

Who said the universe was too big for me to hold?
Life is not so fair, or so I've oft been told
I'm slipping more quickly, I'm another second old
Do you understand that I'm baring you my soul?

I'm so afraid to need you
You're so very far away
And I'm so afraid to tell you
I'm afraid of what you'll say
I'm so afraid to have you
I cannot run away
I need you so bad
I love you so good

I braid back my hair, put my guitar back in its case
I can't think of why I came here in the first place
If I think about it too hard maybe I won't remember your face
Why do you stay engrained in my brain?
Why can't I erase?

I'm so afraid to need you
You're so very far away
And I'm so afraid to tell you
I'm afraid of what you'll say
I'm so afraid to have you
I cannot run away
I need you so bad, so here it is
I love you so good
