Too Afraid to Love You

  • Whoa

    My gears they grind
    More each day
    And I feel like
    They're gonna grind away

    Whoa

    And the city blocks
    They drive me wild
    They're never ending
    Mile after mile

    I just don't know what to do
    I'm too afraid to love you

    'Cause heaven on earth
    Is in her embrace
    A gentle touch
    And a smiling face

    I'm just one wishing
    That I was a pair
    With someone, oh somewhere

    I just don't know what to do
    I'm too afraid to love you

    All those sleepless nights
    And all those wasted days
    I wish loneliness would leave me
    But I think it's here to stay
    What more can I do
    'Cause I'm ringin' myself dry
    And I can't afford to lose
    One more teardrop from my eye

    Whoa

    I'm too afraid
    I'm too afraid
    I just don't know what to do
    With myself
    Thinkin' all the time

    Don't know what to do

    Don't know what to do

  • Kajuna Mx from Puebla, MexicoThe drumming in this song is killer, not too complicated, but it just perfectly fits the song. Carney is a genius.
