Song Lyrics - You Have To Be Willing

Updated on October 11, 2011

You have to be willing
To have your heart broken
You have to be willing
To hate me someday
If you want my love today

You already know I’m willing
To have my heart broken
You saw that in my smile
But why wait until someday
When we can find love today

I want all of you
That’s why I say these things
If you hold back
I’ll know it
And then someday
Will be today

You can’t love a man halfway
You can’t just wait and see
Do you want to ride your fears?
Or do you want to ride with me?

I can see it’s what you want
You’re tired of being afraid
You don’t know where to start
Why don’t we begin today
So you can stop thinking of someday

I want all of you
That’s why I say these things
If you hold back
I’ll know it
And then someday
Will be today

      Hadn't thought of it--I'm not so tuned, but since you mention it, hey, I can just imagine how far you could take this! And I'd love it--along w/SO! Go for it! Never heard you hold back before! Ha yourself!

      @Teylina - Thanks! "... who could ever hold back..." Sounds like this one is my opening line eh? Ha...

      @mckbirdbks - Thank you! I already know how to play to a certain extent. I have an acoustic guitar that is a bit neglected.

      @LABrashear - Thank you! I write lyrics for the moment. I'm trying to get the attention of some local musicians but it's not so easy I guess....

      @Nils - Thank you for the nice comment.

      @PenMePretty - Alas.... I can't sing... that's been proven long ago... Thank you though once again!

      @Nellieanna - Thank you! You think so? I always appreciate it from you because you and I are so different in style. Man could you imagine a #1 hit? It would be wild... It's about not holding back as you can see. You have to go all in if you want real love but it's a scary proposition for everyone.

      This is earth-shaking, Mark!! Truly good! I love it as poetry! But it could be a #1 song. Too few new song lyrics really say anything. This does - and beautifully.

      I love reading the songs. I just wish I could hear the melody with it. Do you write lyrics only or music as well?

      This is very good. Are you learning how to play guitar?
