I Want/But

I want to love someone who’ll be there for me,
But I’m scared to trust a soul.
I want to give my heart away to someone special,
But I’m afraid of losing control.
I want to share tears of pain,
But I’m too ashamed to even cry.
I really want to love someone,
But I’m much too scared to try.
I want to be the one they’ll trust,
But I’m too tired of lies.
I want to hold them when they’re down,
But I’m too aware of what dies.
If only I could find a way
To believe again in love,
I could experience laughter,
And pleasure could never be enough.
