For convincing myself has been harder lately,
Without you near,
Distant from me lately
I need reassurance
To get myself by.
For the shadows of the past linger on,
While you’re away
I miss your embrace
The confidence it gives
To risk another try.
Know by heart I’m always here
Evry moment we hold dear
Night and day – I swear to thee
This guy is there in times of need.
Apart from my rather clumsy self
Know that I am here to help
In times of joy, or saddening strife
In season or not, I’ll arrive with a smile.
These are tears wasted
That are masked by torrid rains.
From holding back and calling out
From pleading I scream and shout
From taking in all of this pain
From drowning myself in the rain
From hoping that you’ll come back soon
From acting like some shit bafoon
From resting on what fate may give
so that I can go on and live
In the reality that exists
Would you let me be?
In the solitude I yearn
Would you even see?
A thin line that’s in between
this I have for you and me.
