I am afraid that one day I will find you
And claim you to be mine
Just as I am yours.
You see, I have sought you forever
Affectionately, passionately, ludicrously;
Knowing that I could never lose you
Because I never had you.
Which fool would trade this security
For the risk of losing you that having you would raise?
Ah, I am intelligent as a reed,
I shall never have you, never lose you
And most importantly, never be afraid.
