I'm just watching you and trying

to figure out if I should speak up.

Should I ask why you're crying

and if inside you're really dying.

Should I put my hand on your head

in a metaphoric from-another-country way.

Or should I watch you there in your bed

as you wake and try to face another day.

-

I know what I should do,

just take you in my arms.

But every time I try to

you just push me farther away.

I try to take you away from it all

but you somehow find a way

to crawl deeper into sorrow.

-

Honey, whoever you are nowadays.

Open your ears and try to hear

that I care, and forever will, always.

I just want to know that you're okay.

I have much more room for complaints,

I have so much more space for tears.

I'm here to catch you if you faint,

when you're sick of all your many fears.

-

I know what I should do,

just take you in my arms.

But every time I try to

you just push me farther away.

I try to take you away from it all

but you somehow find a way

to crawl deeper into sorrow.

-

So pity me, for my sake
burst away your – whatever it is.

Your fear to hurt me, wake

from that dream, how very fake.

'Cause I'm always here for you

and that's the truth, always will be.

I'm never prepared for the things you do,

but no matter what, I'm here, you and me.

-

I know what I should do,

just take you in my arms.

But every time I try to

you just push me farther away.

I try to take you away from it all

but you somehow find a way

to crawl deeper into sorrow.
