Never would of had the nerve before.
Afraid I would impose and be a bore.

People I miss and think about, got in touch with them, which was nice.
Before I would of just went on and not think twice.

Now I'm like a little kid honest and true no fear.
Do and say what I want and no shedding a tear.

Guess that's why I love kids, no guessing if they like you. They let you know.

I hated guessing games and pretending that I didn't care.
Since I became disabled I found out it's a waste of time not to show.

Now I don't waste time I show my true feelings.
No guessing I speak what I feel and if I don't speak to you then I don't like you and you'll know.
