How Dare You
Geoff Thurman

How dare you try to play me
Don’t take me flying far beyond the fields of amber
Surely you must think I am a fool

How dare you try to sway me
Don’t make me cry receiving what no one else gives me
Don’t you assume I‘m falling for you

How dare you teach my feet to walk on clouds above
Beyond my wildest wonder
Since I saw your eyes staring through my soul
I’m afraid of what you see

How dare you try to lay me
In flowing flowers affecting my imagination
I ask what you expect me to do

How dare you melt the very center of my soul
How dare you dare to know me
How dare you share your heart as if I even cared

How dare you shake the ground beneath my very core
How dare you take me where I’ve never been before
How dare you challenge me to cross the open door
How dare you even show me

How dare you try to love me
And set me free with tenderness and stolen kisses
Surely you must think I am a fool
I love what I am feeling for you
I can’t believe I’ve fallen
