Nothing to lose

Assuming you cared,
my lonely heart I bared.
I never realized,
I was talking to someone too scared.
Where could you ever reach,
if you are afraid to step forward.
My love calls for courage,
it won't work with a coward.

You say you feel bad,
and of my love you're ashamed.
It makes me feel sad,
that once again I was blamed.
I could walk out on you,
with your best interest in my mind.
And if thats what I do,
would you consider it to be unkind?

You can taint my name,
and mistrust my loyalty.
But just because I take the blame,
doesn't mean that I am guilty.
Its what I believe,
not something I choose.
I have somuch to give,
and there is nothing to lose.
