NEEMA LYRICS

The Risk

I remember when I fell for you
Sensitive, crazy and smart
You were all so new
Wanted to spend my time
With you constantly
No matter what we wanted to do

Then I fell in so deep
All I could do was breathe you
Tried to come up for air
But I fell beneath you
Your hold was so strong that it could strangle me
And it wasn’t long
Till it did

The bigger the risk
The more the return
But the closer you are to the fire
The more likely you’ll burn
It don’t take long

Felt the coals beneath my feet
One stung me like a bee
Walked a little faster
But it followed me
So many layers to shed
I kept walking across
Baring my share of the cross

The bigger the risk
The more the return
But the closer you are to the fire
The more likely you’ll burn
If it’s your turn

Don’t hold back
When it’s time to shine
Don’t keep to yourself
When it’s time to share
Stand naked, beautiful, divine

The bigger the risk
The more the return
But the closer you are to the fire
The more likely you’ll burn..
Or the more you’ll fly
