Well, it’s simple to love someone. But it’s hard to know when you need to say it out loud.
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
With him I couldn’t be anything but myself and that scared me, because I had never existed like that before.
The Broken Destiny by Carlyle Labuschagne
That was what I feared most: that he just wasn’t excited about us anymore—that something between us had altered irreversibly. And afterward, I started seeing the evidence everywhere: in the way he didn’t sleep facing me anymore, or the way he’d stopped asking me the questions he used to need to know the answers to, the way he stopped needing to tell me things in order for them to count.
London is the Best City in America by Laura Dave
So, please, just be patient. I’m so afraid to care about someone. I know it seems like I’m this strong girl who can get through anything, but inside I’m very fragile. I’ve had so many things thrown at me, and each one has only made a crack. What I’m afraid of is shattering.
Don’t call me obsessed when I’m only scared of losing the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
It’s the scariest thing ever to realize how much someone means to you. When it hits you, I mean really hits you, all these second thoughts and questions rush through your head at once. A sad emotion even starts to creep on you slowly inch by inch as you start to wonder. What if for some reason things don’t work out? How are you going to live without them? Someone that was once a stranger now is the only person you know like the back of your hand. Someone you once had no emotions for, now has the power to break your heart. Someone you never used to hang out with, now owns most of your time. Someone you never thought you’d love, now owns your entire heart. Someone you once lived without, you now wish to hold onto forever.
I think I could like you but I keep holding back ‘cause I can’t seem to tell if you’re fiction or fact. Show me you can laugh, show me you can cry, show me who you really are deep down inside.
How to Touch a Girl by JoJo Lyric
She may come across as hard to get, but that’s because she’s been through a few things, seen a few things, been there and done that. She’s cold, yes, but only because she once cared about someone who failed to care about her. She’s built a fortress to protect her heart from further damage. You told her that you’re different, but she won’t believe it until you prove it. Words don’t mean a thing, actions are everything.
I can’t get married – I’m a thirty-year-old boy.
I held my tongue as she told me, “Son, fear is the heart of love.” So I never looked back.
I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab For Cutie Lyric
I hold the key to my heart so the next guy that comes around won’t easily break it.
I just can’t imagine life without you anymore but I’m so afraid you’ll go away.
I just wanna call him up and be like, “Take it or leave it,” but I’m afraid to because I have a feeling he’ll leave it.
I don’t wanna close my eyes because you might leave when I’m not looking but I’m afraid to keep them open because I can’t watch you walk away.
