That is the difference, she said
I am not fearless, anymore
Love cannot go to my head
Caution is blocking it at the door

I feel you pulling me to you
Your tractor beam charm
Has unsteadied my stance
I long to fall into you
To let down my guard
At the hint of your glance

But often what happens is this:
Love does not blossom, I don’t know why
Bitterness follows the bliss
Next time you hold back instead of try

Falling’s so inviting
The tingle and tangle of limbs and of lips
You are so enticing
Your breath on my neck and your hands
On my hips

I am no frail wounded bird
I am no jezebel, spinning through spoils
I feel alive, and ready to thrive
But you are a kite or a cliff
And no way of knowing yet which

So I’m going home now, she said
Don’t say you’ll call me, just don’t or do
Yeah, it’s a big empty bed
I know you were hoping, I was too
Maybe tomorrow’s the day
fearlessness rises again from the ash
Maybe I’ll call you and say
I am immortal, who cares if we crash

Til then, goodnight and sweet dreams
It’s always so lovely to be with you
