As I mature
I am naked
Afraid of my fears
I am naked
Nothing makes sense
And enclosed by this
I am naked

You seem so alive
And when you are near
I am naked
You make me dive
Into something
Something that makes me feel less
And I am naked

I wish you the best
When I can not fly
When you fall asleep
And feel something deep
I am naked
Everything you are
You don’t have a clue
I tried real hard
To get a good view

At last with a smile
I try not to say
You know that I’m naked
And hope you will stay
