Verse 1

When you see something that you can't stand,

I wish that I could have held your hand,

Let you know you're not alone in this thought of yours.

What do I say to you though? I'm not really sure.

Chorus

And I

Don't have the words to make it alright.

That's why

I wish I could have just held you tight.

Verse 2

When the world makes you feel so annoyed,

You don't hold back words you can't deploy.

But I don't have the words to make it go away.

That's fine though, cause I know, you'll be okay today.

Chorus

And I

Don't have the words to make it alright.

That's why

I wish I could have just held you tight.

Bridge

And told you that

You can't change the world but you

Can gift it with

Something brilliant and brand new.

Chorus

But I

Don't have the words to make it alright.

That's why

I wish I could have just held you tight.
