The Love I'm Frightened Of

September 2013

If I wait, don’t move a muscle
Maybe somehow a spark will strike
It’s been a long night
So sincere, but the message is still a struggle
Knives with which we juggle while we jump through fire

So maybe I’ll move on and make a mistake
And see if my earth quakes

This is the love I’m frightened of
Doesn’t come with a leaflet that says how to keep it
This is a love that can’t be seen
No detailed instructions or Japanese symbols like you find on a washing machine

Slow me down, apply some gentle pressure
And maybe somehow a spark will strike I hope it might
One is best, but lacking in conversation
Safe, but no relation to the warmth you give
So maybe I move on and make a mistake
And see if my earth quakes

This is the love I’m frightened of
Doesn’t come with a leaflet that says how to keep it
This is the love that can’t be seen
No detailed instructions or Japanese symbols like you find on a washing machine

This is a love I’m frightened of
Doesn’t come with a leaflet
that says how to keep it

This is a love that can’t be seen
No detailed instructions

This is the love I’m frightened of
This is the love I’m frightened of
