If I Told You I Love You
If I told you I love you
What would you think?
Would you say you love me too?
Or that we're too young?
Would you hold me to you
And kiss away my fears of rejection?
Would you melt my inhibitions
With gentle touches of love
In places no-one's ever been?
Would you reassure me
Of reciprocation of my love?
Or would you spurn me?
Would you turn away from me?
Would you decide that you don't want
Someone who loves too easily?
Would our two month, three month anniversary
Be the anniversary of the end?
Or would we last?
In a world of make believe and fantasy
You'd be the one to take me all the way
My first, and in my dreams my last.
