I never expected this.
I don't know what to feel.
It's so sudden, bursting forth,
Like my heart when you make it beat.
Whatever I'm feeling, it's new to me now...
So different, exciting...it makes me warm.

It scares me a little, scares me to say
What I feel, even though
I know you feel the same.
Or at least I hope...
Because you can never be sure.

I feel tugged and pulled
By so many people...
But I think you're tugging
As hard as you can.
It hurts me, you know,
But I don't think I care.

I'm me with I'm with you.
I feel like myself.
I'm finally figuring
Out who she is...
The things you say
Make me feel okay
When I look in the mirror
And feel this fever...
Quivering, here, inside.

I feel so much braver...
I feel so alive.
Awake, even though
I've only slept a while.
You keep me awake.
You keep me alive.
You make me brave.
You make me fly.

Thank you so much
For stroking my wings.
You know who you are. <3
