Afraid for Love to Fade

Christian Bautista

Album: Romance Revisited: The Love Songs of Jose Mari Chan

My head’s in a jam, can’t take you off my mind
From the time we met I’ve been beset by thoughts of you
And the more that I ignore this feeling
The more I find myself believin’
That I just have to see you again

[chorus]
I can’t let you pass me by, I just can’t let you go
But I know that I am much too shy to let you know
Afraid that I might say the wrong words and displease you
Afraid for love to fade before it can come true

Like a child again, I’m out and lost for words
How does one define a crush combined with longing
Longing to possess you oh so dearly
I’m obsessed by you completely
I’ll go mad if i cant have you

[chorus]
I can’t let you pass me by, I just can’t let you go
But I know that I am much too shy to let you know
Afraid that I might say the wrong words and displease you
Afraid for love to fade before it can come true

I can’t let you pass me by, I just can’t let you go
Let me say the things that say the words to let you know
I would rather say the awkward words than lose you
Or for love to fade before it can come true
