lyrics

The cage of myself clamps shut. I turn the lock on my words.
I pretended you didn't hurt me but inside I died.
We exchanged blind words, I didn't cry...
Maybe I will next time
Funny how dreams disappear under layers of life.

It's a risk to take the next step, a risk to get your feet wet.
It's a risk to fall down, a risk to try it again.
It's a risk to give, a risk, a risk to live.
There's nothing to lose, just live.

These questions linger in my heart... do you want me? Do you love me?
So I take a deep breath, with no guarantee,
but a chance to ask for what I need.
What a concept!

It's a risk to take the next step, a risk to get your feet wet.
It's a risk to fall down, a risk to try it again.
It's a risk to give, a risk, a risk to live.
Risk this, yeah... a kiss.

I saw a friend of mine sewing her heart back together again.
She now wants to live for more than two minutes between men.
Change can come like a freight train and sometimes I'm afraid.
But I'd rather hit a wall at ninety, than to be stuck inside my brain!

It's a risk to take the next step, a risk to get your feet wet.
It's a risk to fall down, a risk to try it again.
It's a risk to give, a risk, a risk to live.
There's nothing to lose...

It's a risk to take the next step, a risk to get your feet wet.
It's a risk to fall down, a risk to try it again.
It's a risk to give, a risk, a risk to live.
There's nothing to lose, just live.
