Song Lyrics - Don't Move Too Fast

Updated on November 26, 2011

I gave her a blank piece of paper
She looked with confused eyes
She said, “There are no words”
“Yes,” I said “… and there are no lies”

She asked, “Why would you give this to me?”
I said, “Things are always the same
I just want to be honest
I don’t want to play the game”

They say you can’t lose what you never had
So this time I'll tell her what’s real
Maybe that’s what she wants anyway
Just get to know each other and see how we feel

Be who you are and never forget
Don’t rush in and cause regret
Move too fast and you’ll scare her away
She doesn’t want your heart the very first day

She asked me to write something
I said, “Do you want a promise?”
She said, “Just write something sweet”
I wrote “Do you believe in a kiss?”

She smiled, “I want to believe in love”
I said, “I want to believe in you”
She whispered, “Do you want me to be your girl?”
I said, “That’s why I'm talking to you”

It's time to believe in honesty
Love lives in hearts and not on paper
She was tired of men saying, “I love you”
Before they even got to know her

She said, “Will it hurt if you lose me?”
I said, “Yes but I can live with a scar”
She said, “I don’t want to be all you have
Can we be lovers and still be who we are?”

With a blank piece of paper I opened the door to love

This is what she wanted and all it took was courage
She knew I could walk away and be a free man
She feels the same but now she holds my hand

Be who you are and never forget
Don’t rush in and cause regret
Move too fast and you’ll scare her away
She doesn’t want your heart the very first day

      @gabgirl12 - Thank you. It's hard to be like that. Sometimes I just write about the ideals in life.

      @pmccray - There you are again! Thank you.

      Very beautiful poem about love. It's funny how many women probably don't know very men like that. But it would be nice to find one. Thanks for sharing!
