I always knew you'd leave on day,
but why did you so soon?

Are you sure I'm ready to
see what the real world's like?

Why can't you just stay with me,
and shield me from the terrors?
Just protect me from everything
as you always did.

Don't leave me yet my love
for you are my shield.

You are the one that tells me
that the boogieman isn't real.
You're the one that holds me
when we watch a scary movie.

You were the one that loved me,
and shielded me from the terror.
The terror of a broken heart.
The thing that I've always feared.
