Open, Stay

We’re not the first, we’re not the first lovers

We’re not the first to promise each other forever

Forever, it’s just words

And you’re not my first, you’re not my first lover

You’re not the first one to discover

Forever

I never use that word

 

But when you say it to me

Suddenly I believe what it could mean

And suddenly I see

That what I thought was true

Isn’t true of you

 

Cuz you take

You take the words from my mouth

You make

Make me lose my senses

You break

You break the walls that I’ve built

You take down my defenses

So here I am deaf and blind

And finally wide open

For the first time

 

I’ve loved before and lived to regret it

Learned love could only hurt if you let it

So never, don’t ever let it in

But the way you hold and tell me you love me

Has made me think that maybe there could be a reason

To open, to begin

 

Cuz I never thought I’d be

Safe while someone holds a part of me

But suddenly I see

That was I thought was true

Isn’t true of you

 

Cuz you take

You take the words from my mouth

You make

Make me lose my sense

You break

You break the walls that I’ve built

You take down my defenses

So here I am deaf and blind

And finally wide open

For the first time

 

But if I tell you I love you

Do I know that you will stay?

If to love you is to trust you

Those are words I couldn’t say

At least not until today

 

I love you

I love you

I love you

Stay
