If I could help you

Then I would

Without a doubt

.

Nothing good can come from

A pain so great that Insanity

Ebbs at your window

Beckoning you to let it in

He is no lover that you want

.

Hope can drive him away

For she is as strong as you let her be

And if you ask of her

She'll push him away

.

I want to be

Hope strong enough to fight

When you cannot

.

I want to be

A light that takes you from

Shadows and hypocrisies

From all that causes grief

.

You've done no wrong

Not by any means

And many of us haven't

Yet we're the tried

Each trial specific to our faults

.

If I could help you

Then I would

Without a doubt

Pull you from the waters that drown

And never throw you back in

.

But I am forbidden from

Keeping you dry

The gods have decreed

You must learn to swim

In the swathing umbrage

When sooth is all you need
