You ask me if I love you
I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie

And who am I to judge you
Or what you say or do
When I'm only just beginning
To see the real you

[Chorus]
And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
That I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you till the feelings subside

Romance with all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
And through the insecurity
Some tenderness abides
I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within his youth

[Chorus]

Oh at times I want to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I want to break through
And hold you endlessly

[Chorus]

    General CommentThe guy is expressing how he feels for the girl in the beginning, he's unsure. But he can't help but realize how the girl makes him feel.

    General CommentThis song is rather easy to understand. To me anyway and it is just my opinion it seems as though this guy is struggling with his feelings for a girlfriend. On one hand he wants to say he loves her but he knows that will only hurt her because he would be lying. So it is an internal struggle with his emotions as to what he should do because he is in a no win situation when asked if he loves his girlfriend.
