about

This is song #2 off of my slow release EP Adventures After Ever After. I'm writing a song a month from February to June exploring some of the many nuances of love, relationship, and intimacy. For March I was exploring the fear that arises when you realize that "romance" the way you always thought it works, has failed you, and that there is no map to where you really want to go.

lyrics

He's a deep pool and I'm at the edge of a cliff
and I want to dive in
but I don't know how to loosen my grip
cause I've been broken
on the rocks of other shores
I've been broken
but I don't want to be scared anymore

what if I drown
what if I fail
what if I open up only to be scorned
what if I'm wrong
what have I done
what if I'm not that kind of girl
what if he sees
what if I'm pleased
what's the worth it could really be
what if it's love
what if it lasts
what if I'm scared of intimacy

He's a future inside a crystal ball
and I'm at the crossroads
trying to climb over my walls
what I can't say
is who I might become
cause I've been so comfortable
defining myself as alone

what if I can't write
what if I get bored
what if he's a weight that drags me down
what if it feels good
what if it's a cage
what if I have no choice but to change
what if it's fun
what if I feel free
to discover who else I could be
what if he let's me down
what if he gives up
what if there isn't love enough

All these what if's never have good answers
safety is a dream
nothing comes with guarantees
it could be grand
but you won't find out till the end
safety is a dream nothing comes with guarantees

what if I can't write
what if I get bored
what if he's a weight that drags me down
what if it feels good
what if it's a cage
what if I have no choice but to change
what if it's fun
what if I feel free
to discover who else I could be
what if he let's me down
what if he gives up
what if there isn't love enough

what if I drown
what if I fail
what if I open up only to be scorned
what if I'm wrong
what have I done
what if I'm not that kind of girl
what if he sees
what if I'm pleased
what's the worth it could really be
what if it's love
what if it lasts
what if I'm scared of intimacy
