Track Name: The Hesitant
The Hesitant

Judging all prospective partners with microscope eyes
Labeling them as defective and damaged merchandise
Even Venus would be less than in your eyes
Aphrodite’s wet hair would be a tarnished prize


Keeping all your options open has closed off your heart
The only part of love you understand is its start
That shock of magic that quickens your heart
Quickly diminishes as you look at her as art


Put up on a pedestal eventually she’ll fall
Pushed off by your need to control it all
Your fear of love is really a fear of growing old
When death will take away the love that you try to hold


Put away your fear, let fly your secret dream
Take a hand in yours, take a chance, and be redeemed
Truth is never perfect for in perfection pain’s concealed
Beauty resides in the wounds that we reveal
