It's hard to know
Who's really there,
And hard to know
Who'd really care
To see you cry
Or die alone
Or fall apart,
Or turn to stone.

It's hard to know
Who'd take your hand,
And hard to know
Who'd take a stand,
No matter what
The circumstance,
Defend your right
To have your stance.

It's hard to know
Who'll be your friend,
And hard to know
Who'd really bend
To help you when
You are in need:
You'll never know,
So please take heed.

It's hard to know
Who will stay true,
Until you've gone,
Then it shows through.
It's quite a shame,
But it's no lie:
You'll never know
Until you die.
