If I Open Up To You
If I open up to you would you accept me fully?
If I open up to you would you take advantage of my kindness?
Will you use me? Abuse me? Take me for granted?
Will you replace me and leave me stranded?
If I open up to you would you only talk to me when it’s convenient?
If I open up to you would you stick by my side through the weather?
Will you trust me? Would I be able to trust you?
Will you be my friend and be there for me when I need you to??
If I open up to you would you be there at my best and my worse?
If I open up to you would you have the heart to save me?
To be quite honest, I’m scared of people too
To be honest I’m more scared of you
My past is full of broken promises
Lies that should’ve never been told
Times where I should’ve stood up and been bold
But I didn’t because I was scared
People like me always wear a mask
Just because we’re not quite up to the task
I don’t want to be rejected and judged
I want to be alone but not lonely
Even if for this evening only
Then I know that maybe there was a chance
Can you promise me this one thing you will do?
Please don’t let me down if I open up to you
