The power of one.

All it takes

Is one leg extended into the way

And I trip and fall. 

All it takes

Is one word, casually said without thought

And I hold in tears.

All it takes

Is one threat made

And I run and hide.

It only takes a second, it only takes a blink. It only takes one.

That's all it takes.
