If I say I love you, does it mean that I’m committed?
Because I’ve been committed once before.
And I found it didn’t work out right. Perhaps it was the two of us,
(But I) don’t feel ready yet to start things over.

If I feel you needing me, do I have to answer?
Do I have to be there when you call?
Or can we say that it’s still two of us. We haven’t become one just yet.
We don’t need each others’ arms each time we fall.

And if we speak of love, does it mean that we’re exclusive?
Does it tie us to each other, and make us have to choose
Between the poles of no one else and Saturday night romance.
Or is there someplace in between, where love can be a feeling,
Deep and rich and happy, but not the place I’ve just now left.
Because I’ve been commited once before.

But I’m lonely for the love I feel from you.
