"Scary Love" as written by Skye Sweetnam, Graham Edwards, Scott Spock and Lauren Christy....
What is love my love
Tell me do you know
To me its dirt and blood and seed
That's how my garden grows

What is this pain inside
My veins they turn to frost
Is there an operation, please
And how much does it cost

This love is a scary love

If I had one day left to live
I'd lock the doors and windows
But keep you in
If I had one day left to live
I'd wrap myself around you
And breathe you in

Scary love
It's scary love

What is love my love
Tell me why it burns
Like rage and fire inside of me
Yet causes no concern

I'm quite used to it
The ashes on my hands
At least I've felt the pain of love
But no one understands

This love is a scary love

If I had one day left to live
I'd lock the doors and windows
But keep you in
If I had one day left to live
I'd wrap myself around you
And breathe you in

This love is a scary love
Blackbirds in the place of doves
Clenched fist in a velvet glove
Like a train running over us
Like being nailed to a cross

If I had one day left to live (if I had one)
I'd keep you in, I'd keep you in
If I had one more day left to live
I'd wrap myself around you
And breathe you in

    General CommentI love this song.
    This songs seems to be about how she hasn't had many successful relationships and she found someone she really likes but is scared to love him because of her past failures. It's also scary because how much she is into him and she just wants to be with him all the time. To me this is such a powerful song.
