I'm Trying

I space myself from you
I won't show that I care
I do, you know, though
I listen to your problems
My heart aches
I long to make it better
You wouldn't like that
You wouldn't let me
So I back out of your life
You say I hate you
But, oh . . .I love you so
I want to hold you in my arms
But, you'd pull away
Call me a hypocrite
Say it to my face
Claim I'm a backstabber
I'll put on a good face
I'll never leave you
I'm trying to be the perfect sister
I'm trying
