Album: Shadows & Light (1992)This Doesn't Have To Be Love
Softly, love is standing here with its demands
(Tell me what you want from me, you want from me)
Slowly, I think I'm letting go of all my plans
(Tell me where we're goin' to, we're goin' to)
Why, why am I afraid to give into this
Why am I afraid?
This doesn't have to be love
But it's all I can feel, it's all that I fear.
This doesn't have to be anything at all,
So hard to fall (from this high above)
But do we have to call it love?
I hold back, from everything I really want to say
(Should I let my guards down, my guards down, my guards down)
I don't, I don't make commitments that could break
(Maybe it's just too late, it's just too late)
I, I'm so afraid to give into this
I'm so afraid, Oh
Need a little time to think things through, Baby
Do I really want to give myself, give all myself to you, now?
I can't believe it's happening so fast
'Cause I don't want to bring back what I left in the past, No.
So hard to fall...in love
This doesn't have to be...love
(Love, love is all I feel...your love is what I fear)
Love me...love me
So hard to fall
So very hard to fall.
