SCARED

Never known surprise like the way you fell into my sight
And I have to hide my eyes ‘cos I’m not sure that I’m seeing right anymore
And I never trust a fact ‘cos I know that I’ve been wrong before
And I don’t know how to act so I’ve got to wait ‘til I am sure
And you’re so beautiful I have to turn away
And you’re so beautiful I have to turn away sometimes



And I’m scared to turn around and I’m scared to make a sound
In case you realise it’s all a big mistake
And I’m scared to speak my mind ‘cos I’m scared that you will find
That it’s nothing but an overblown mistake this time



Even so I can’t resist when I hear your voice I’m so relieved
But my caution will persist ‘cos it’s not so easy to believe
And you’re so beautiful I have to turn away
And you’re so beautiful I have to turn away sometimes



And I’m scared to turn around and I’m scared to make a sound
In case you realise it’s all a big mistake
And I’m scared to speak my mind ‘cos I’m scared that you will find
That it’s nothing but an overblown mistake this time



I was thinking of you when the sun came up
I’ll be thinking of you when she dies
I’ll be thinking of you in the mean time behind these eyes



So I long to share your world, hang on every word you say
Be the one who’s curled beside you when you wake each day
But you’re so beautiful I have to turn away
You’re so beautiful I have to turn away sometimes



And I’m scared to turn around and I’m scared to make a sound
In case you realise it’s all a big mistake
And I’m scared to speak my mind ‘cos I’m scared that you will find
That it’s nothing but an overblown mistake this time, this time
