5). SCARED OF LOVE ( © Lachlan McLeod )
Lovers may come and lovers may go,
But I throw away my heart every time.
Some that are fast and some that are slow,
But I've never found a way to keep my love alive.
And when all that I believed in has shrivelled into grey,
Can you understand it when I say?
"I'm scared of love, I'm scared of love".
I've learnt to create respectable games,
That keep me at a distance where I'm safe and sound.
Some things are lost and others are gained,
But I think I was the loser when I went to ground
And so when I hear the knockin' of love outside my door,
I turn my back, I wonder what it's for.
I'm scared of love, I'm scared of love.
