To Your Love
Here's another speech you wish I'd swallow
Another cue for you to fold your ears
Another train of thought too hard to follow
Chugging along to the song that belongs to
The shifting of gears

Please forgive me for my distance
The pain is evident in my existence
Please forgive for my distance
The shame is manifest in my resistance
To your love, to your love, to your love

I would've warned you, but really, what's the point?
Caution could, but rarely ever helps
Don't be down, my demeanor tends to disappoint
It's hard enough even trying to be civil to myself

Please forgive me for my distance
The pain is evident in my existence
Please forgive me for my distance
The shame is manifest in my resistance
To your love, to your love, to your love

My derring-do allows me to dance the rigadoon around you
But by the time I'm close to you
I lose my desideratum and now you...
So now you have it, so tell me, baby, what's the word?
Am I your gal, or should I get out of town?
I just need to be reassured
Do you just deal it out
Or can you deal with what I lay down?

Please forgive me for my distance
The pain is evident in my existence
Please forgive me for my distance
The shame is manifest in my resistance
To your love, to your love, to your love
To your love, to your love, to your love
To your love, to your love
