If I Let You Love Me


If I let you love me
I will let you down
And when our love is done
A part of us will drown

If I let you love me
I’ll start to love you too
We’ll tear at one another
Cuz that’s what lovers do

If I let you love me
I’m taking on your weight
And someone will get hurt
And hurt will turn to hate

I won’t let you love me
Cuz I care for you too much
Attachment is no match
For the malady of touch

by Richard W. Bray
