She Lies Awake

Can't retrieve unconsciousness,
Something on my mind,
'Cause last night was the first night
I risked leaving him behind.

He said he wanted honesty,
To tell him what I think.
Was it just talk? Will he be shocked?
Will he hang up? Or drink?

The morning we both knew would come,
Too bright the light today;
Will he accept me as I am,
Or start to slip away?

Is love enough in me for him
To lay my secrets bare?
I don't know, oh no, don't know!
Oh! Why? Why do I care?

I resolve I should resolve;
I know he knows. I vow
To chance that he'll still love me -
But maybe not just now.
