I sit and wonder what it is that makes you cry
You won't tell me, you fake a smile, bravely gaze up to the sky
What is it that troubles you so bad?
Why don't you stop always reatreating when you are sad?
I wish you could trust me, wish you would talk
But you always turn from me and walk
The fortress around your heart is shutting me out
It's strong and fueled by your fear and your doubt
All I want is just for you to trust me
Still you'd rather let your troubles be
Why don't you seem to understand
That I want to lend my helping hand?
I try to be the one to catch you when you fall,
I swear I'd take on anyone and fight them all
All I ask is for a chance, for you to see
That friend of yours I wish to be.
