It takes courage to love
To believe that he’s the one
That he won’t hurt you
That he won’t hit you
That he won’t make you undone

It takes courage to love
To push that fear aside
To let yourself be real
To let yourself feel
Show him what’s on the inside

It takes courage to love
And not play “what if?”
“What if he’s pretending?”
“What if I’m left fending
for myself and maybe kids?”

It takes courage to love
To let yourself open up
Let him see your soul
Let him see you whole
Not just pieces and shards

It takes courage to love
That’s something I don’t have
“When the time is right”
“Don’t put up a fight”
But the truth is, I already am
