Hard to ask,

Hard to say,

But I need to know either way.

Did I hold on too tight?

Did I snuff out your light?

I don’t know what I should do,

To keep myself from loving you.

Should I even ask why?

Should I let these thoughts die?

If your mind and your heart should ever sway,

And you feel that you want to stay,

I won’t let you ever

Slide away.
