I never let my guard down,
so why do I still miss you?
It's easier to forge a love
than deciding to live without
I'm trying my luck with the latter
Is that so much better?
I never understood
why I should be distant while I'm there
Is it so disturbing to care?
This don't come easy

I've always been too much
of a naive dreamer
And it's too much when it falls apart
Why were we cursed to pump these hearts?
I've never been the type to take things easy
Oh, please believe me
You don't know what you've avoided, you see
Because when I let go, I give it all
And I've already lost enough
I can't afford to gamble

And one day,
I know I'll run out of excuses
And then I'll have to figure it out
And do away with all of this doubt
I know I'm looking for love, so I have to trust it
Or are these ideas busted?
I can't claim to have logical proof
So here's to never giving up
Life is about having enough
And love is not what I need

Right now, I'm taking it easy.
