The Danger

from The Bellevue Years

I would fall for you so easily
If I could let my heart go
But something in you has shaken me
I'm scared to let you know
Because I see the Danger
You see it too
Of what becomes of women like me
Who fall for men like you

You been hurt so many times
How could you trust again?
Especially a heart as fickle as mine
That doesn't want to lose you as a friend
But you see the Danger
And fear instinctively
Of what becomes of men like you
Who fall for women like me

I'm not trying to convince you
I am trying to convince myself
That the gamble I hope to take
Isn't just another in a long line of loving mistakes

If we could only see tomorrow
As clearly as today
If we could just overcome our fears
There'd be no need to say
That I see the Danger
You see it too
Of what becomes of women like me
What becomes of men like you
