Not Quite Ready

by mckavanaugh

Iím not quite ready to take you home
Iím not quite ready to take that on
Iím not quite ready to let you inside
Iíve been there before - Iíve already tried 

People can be so cruel
When you give them your heart
Thereís no warning itís died
It just falls apart
The weight of the world descends
And you donít know where you stand
The smoke clears and your deepest fears:
Broken heart on your hands 

Iím not quite ready to take you home
I feel something good here going on
Iím not quite ready to say goodnight
Letís stay out until the morning light

This may be my second chance
One more reason to live
Time to forget the past
Maybe in time Ė to forgive
To smell the clean, fresh air and
Count the stars in the sky
I think I can see them all there
When I look in your eyes 

Iím not quite ready to take you home
Iím not quite ready to say so long
Iím not quite ready to say goodbye
Iím not quite sure of the reason why
Iím not quite ready
Iím not quite ready
Iím not quite ready to let go of you
