If you’ve ever truly been in love,
you’ve surely asked the stars above
to keep watch over your darling,
though sometimes the stars are not enough.

Nobody warned me of this pain.
It’s like cutting half my body away.
Each day he walks out of our door,
I get even more attached

And I was unaware of the pain involved,
and I’m a little scared of emotions so strong.

The world won’t hold your hand –
high speed and high demand.
High atop the silvery structure,
the wind never bows at your command.

There’s no telling fire what to do,
and metal can go straight through.
Your heart’s not shrouded in steel.
I wish I could feel you breathe,

and I was unaware of the pain involved,
and I’m a little scared of emotions so strong.

This t-shirt is so thin,
won’t you put something on to safeguard your skin?
You can never be too careful these days.
The miles, the miles
passing and all the while,
still got a ways to go.
I feel the chill spread fast
and deadly the further I get.
Oh please, believe me!

And I was unaware of the pain involved,
and I’m a little scared of emotions so strong.

Is this a common thing?
Am I the only one to feel this way?
And should I be concerned
about what’s rattling round in my brain?
It scares me a bit too much
to know that someday it’s all going to end.
I feel the chill spread fast
until you come warm me again.
Oh please, don’t leave me!

And I was unaware of the pain involved
and I’m a little scared of emotions so strong.

Nobody warned me of this pain.
It’s like cutting, cutting, cutting away.

Oh, I was unaware of the pain involved (Nobody warned me of this pain.)
and I’m a little scared of emotions so strong. (It’s like cutting half my body away. )

I was unaware of the pain involved (Nobody warned me of this pain.)
and I’m a little scared of emotions so strong. (It’s like cutting half my body away. )
