Just Perhaps

Maybe you’re right

Maybe I am scared
Maybe I’m afraid to be happy
Maybe I hide behind these lines

Maybe I can’t see any other way
Maybe I should learn to be brave
Maybe I should get on that plane
Maybe I should meet you for lunch

Just maybe

Maybe I can see possibilities on the horizon
Maybe my head is reeling
Maybe I think about you far too often

Maybe I want you
Maybe I’m happy you found me
Maybe I still can’t see any other way

Maybe I’m scared

  1. Maybe he’ll see the real me
    Maybe he’ll walk away
    Maybe he’ll run
    Maybe ….

    Yes… perhaps I *should* think about it a little more. There might be more maybes I haven’t thought of.


  2. This one hits me to the core. You described that feeling of getting caught up on the what if’s and maybes perfectly. I loved this!
