My Heart Belongs to You

What makes you so afraid of me,
You'd lock your heart deep in a prison cell,
And hide your feelings far inside,
But you love me I can tell.
Why don't you see your pride
is clouding your emotions,
stops you seeing my devotion, to you.

You see, I am no different,
I hide behind a wall of shallow smiles,
and pretend it's just not real,
but I'm really in denial
about the emotions that I feel.
I throw off my disguise,
As I look into the eyes, of you.

And though I know you stand beside me,
I can't confess the love inside me,
But when those prison walls come crashing down around you,
Then I know I'll still be true,
Even if there's nothing I can do,
My heart belongs to you.

Just what is it that has stopped us,
From saying what we both know to be true,
That we want to be together,
Alone, just me and you,
From now until forever.
Our lives would be much clearer,
If I could just be nearer, to you.

Maybe I should be the one,
That takes the step to bind us as a whole,
But I'm just so afraid,
You reject my caring soul,
And then our love would fade.
I find myself debating,
With no sign of abating,
Maybe I'll just keep on waiting, for you.

And though I know you stand beside me,
I can't confess the love inside me,
But when those prison walls come crashing down around you,
Then I know I'll still be true,
Even if there's nothing I can do,
My heart belongs to you.
