"Not Your Enemy" as written by Eric Hudson, Kelly Claude and Jesse / Mccartney....
Sorry for all the times that feel like
I left your heart hangin'
I can't imagine what that feels like
But that was another place
And that was another time
It's not fair to blame me for all his crimes
Just for a minute give me a chance let me inside
Just for a minute baby just for a moment
Let me prove I'll do things right

Let down your guard
And show me your colors
Don't fight it anymore
Show me you're with me
Open your arms
I'm not like the others
So don't fight it anymore no
What will it take for me to make you see?
I'm not your enemy

If only on day that he left
I wasn't even there
It's become a nightmare but I'll never rest
Till you give your all
I'll take nothing else till I hear happily ever after the end
Just for a minute give me a chance let me inside
Just for a minute baby just for a moment
Let me prove I'll do things right

Let down your guard
And show me your colors
Don't fight it anymore
Show me you're with me
Open your arms
I'm not like the others
So don't fight it anymore no
What will it take for me to make you see?
I'm not your enemy

How do you expect things to get any better?
If you keep me on the sideline
Don't you know there's a million things I wanna do
But you gotta meet me halfway you gotta try
Woah

Let down your guard
And show me your colors
Don't fight it anymore
Show me you're with me
Open your arms
I'm not like the others
So don't fight it anymore no
What will it take for me to make you see?
I'm not your enemy

    General CommentI disagree. I think Jesse likes a girl, but she's damaged from her last relationship and scared to fall for anyone again. He's telling her to let down her guard and just let herself fall again cause he's not like the other guys and he'll be there.

    General CommentThis song could be an anthem for all those who are too scared to trust others; who don't feel they are good enough for others to truly care for them and about them; and for those who want to continue keeping others at arm's length. They friggin' keep getting the same ugly results year after year, but they're too stubborn to admit it. Ugh.
