Restless Heart

Please don't turn away
when I stand here
ready to let you in
amazed that through all my hurt
I'm still able to love again
I can't quiet my restless heart
my very being is ruled by passion
love is always a risk I'm willing to take
I'm sorry if that scares you
but I'd rather have loved
than let someone special pass me by
I don't understand why some people
need time to tell them they're ready to love
but understand and respect that
if it's time you need
then it's okay to take things slow
but you must know,
I cannot quiet my restless heart.
