Verse:
Ab
I stick with real things

Usually facts and figures

When information's in its place

I minimize the guessing game

Guess what?

I don't like guessing games

Or when I feel things

Before I know the feelings

How am I supposed to operate

If I'm just tossed around by fate?

Like on an unexpected date?

               Db
Before I've decided that
              Gb
He can ask me questions About myself

       Db
Or eat Oreos
            Gb
But eat the cookie before the cream?

But what scares me the most
     F
what scares me the most
 
Verse:
           Bb
Is what if when he sees me, what if he doesn't like it?

What happens then?
   Bb
If when he knows me, he's only disappointed?
                                           Eb
What if I give myself away, to only get it given back?

I couldn't live with that

So, I'm just fine, inside my shell-shaped mind
     F     Eb             Dm Cm
This way I get the best view
    Ebm                Ab
So, when he sees me, I want him to

While a certain suitor stands in line

I've seen in movies

Most made for television

You cannot be too careful
                               Fm
When it comes to sharing your life

I could end up a miserable wife

who escaped from an institution,
                     Db
somewhere where they don't have girls
              Gb
He could have masterminded some way to find me
            Ebm
He could be colorblind

How untrustworthy is that
            Db
He could be less than kind
        Gb                                Ebm
Or even worse he could be very nice, have lovely eyes

And make me laugh, come out of hiding
          F7
What do I do with that?

Oh, God

Bb
What if when he sees me

I like him and he knows it?

What if he opens up a door

My heart is set in motion

I'm not prepared for that

I'm scared of breaking open

But still I can't help from hoping

To find someone to talk to

Someone who when he sees me

Wants to again
