i’m willing to try lyrics – joe diffie

most of me is scared to death
as i’m holding you tonight
should i open up my heart to you
or should i run for my life

i come by caution, honestly
i’m no stranger to heartache
but a tiny, trusting part of me
says you’re a chance i’ve got to take

i don’t know if i can do this
history ain’t on my side
but as we’re lying here
and i’m looking my fear in the eye
i’m willing to try

know fear’s a funny thing sometimes
when you’re stuck and scared to move
the pain of staying where you are
is worse than if you push on through

i know i’ve got no guarantees
love won’t be the easy road
but as i hold you, my heart’s whispering
it’s the way i gotta go

i don’t know if i can do this
history ain’t on my side
but as we’re lying here
and i’m looking my fear in the eye
i’m willing to try

as we’re lying here
and i’m looking my fear in the eye
i’m willing to try
i’m willing to try
i’m willing to try
