I don't need to pray for extra strength to get me through,
Not now that you're beside me when I'm scared.
I don't need to cry myself to sleep anymore,
Not now that you kiss my eyes as I slip into sweet dreams.
I don't need to hate myself or hurt myself for not being good enough,
Not now that you make me feel more desired than I ever hoped I could be.
I don't need to run or hide when I can feel myself slipping,
Not now, because you never let me slip far before you catch me.
I don't need to pretend to be someone else, someone stronger,
Not now that I've got you.
