Please don’t give up on me.
You know I love you more than anyone.
I’ve struggled so hard to stay true
To you, and to never turn my head.
Please don’t cut me instead.
It’s been a long time,
Years of unfulfilled hopes and promises.
But I can’t forget those moments
With you in a dream garden,
Though so many I don’t remember.
I still know I was there,
And so were you.
We have to hold on to the beautiful things
We once dared only dream of.
The time is coming quickly!
Rest in the love we’ve fought
So hard to believe in.
It’s the only thing powerful enough
To slice through our doubts
And cast them into the abyss.
You can judge me,
But I’ve got to let you
Fight your own wars alone.
I see in your eyes
That you think you know what I’m made of,
But I respond with silence,
Something someone of so many words
Could never understand.
I am waking up without your supervision;
I am raising up without your permission.
I’ve stumbled through nightmares and dreams,
The proof is the scars on my feet.
Tell me, why are you so afraid?
It’s easy to diminish me
When you’re so small.
Yes, you’re the one who’s small.
I don’t mean to hurt you
With my concealing silence.
I just can’t let you in.
I can’t let you hurt me first.
