Clumsy

lyrics

V1:
Please forgive my clumsy fingers
They can’t hold a heart
The more I want it
The more the tremble
Insecure from the start

Chorus:
I can’t know you yet cause I don’t know myself
I can’t hold you yet cause I can’t hold myself
I can’t love you yet cause I don’t love myself
I don’t love myself the way I should

V2:
The one before you
Made me into
A dandelion in the wind
Blown apart at the force of his words
Scattered seeds of doubt

CHORUS

Bridge:
I won’t use you
To make me happy
To need me
To save me

I can’t ask you
I make me free
To feed me
No!

I can’t choose you
If I can’t choose me too
Choose me first

To be with you
I must first be myself

CHORUS

If I don’t know how to love
Then I’ll hurt the one I try to love
And I don’t wanna hurt you (4x)
