here's a song, about uncertainty. Question: Who cares when something is uncertain? Answer: When the context is critical, such as love.

Rihanna - “Stay” (featuring Mikky Ekko) Buy at amazon
All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said, “Show me something,”
He said, “If you dare, come a little closer.”

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know.

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay

It's not much of a life you're living
It's not just something you take — it's given

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know.

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, the reason I hold on
Ooh, ooh, ooh, 'cause I need this hole gone
Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving
'Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving.

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay, stay.
I want you to stay, oh.

“if you dare, come a lil' closer.”

note the word “dare”. The fuel of the word lies in risk, which is fuel'd by danger, which is fuel'd by damage.

damage, between human animals, is possible when close.

but, like rabbit out of the hole, risk is often necessary if you want benefits.
