You Said

You said you can't go on
For the race has been run
and the loss aches deep
...it hurts to see you weep

If only I could protect you
Save you from breaking apart
And if I could be your heart
I would take all pain for you

You said you are too weak
For there are many words unsaid
And they are so hard to speak
Don't you see what's still ahead

If only I'd make you understand
Save you from getting blind
And if I could be your mind
I would let your world expand

Still, there is so much to do
There's a whole life for you
Don't get caught in a cage
Write your own book, page by page

Oh yes, this seems all so hard
but you know you've to make a start
If only I could help you through
but the only one who can - is you
