we prescribe antidotes to ailing minds love as a disease requires compromise 

and prevention is better than a cure

but lonely hearts accommodate negative tourists

thus we fear things we don’t understand

but fail to understand when we’re afraid
so let me admit I look forward to being terrified
i know actions have consequences

put your lips on mine and infect me with the taste of your expectations

i’m sorry for the times I will let you down

and grateful for the days you’ll hold me up

and even though I know I don’t have much

I hope it will be just enough

to make you fear life without me

so we can be afraid together
