They say that love and fear
Canít live in the same heart.
When a person falls in love,
Fear doesnít play a part.
They donít know how I feel
When Iím with you and when Iím not.
The way I lose myself in your eyes,
Getting lost in thought.
They donít know what itís like
To have three days of heaven.
Then suffer with this hell until
Weíre together again.
They donít know how it feels
To fall in love with your best friend.
If, by chance, we donít make it
Will I lose your friendship in the end?
I know that I love you
And that you need to know it too.
Tonight, I will give up my fear.
Tonight, I give in to you.
It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
