Please stop hiding from me
I know I have to earn your trust
But can't you see?
If you always flee;
How will I ever get close enough?
I mean you no harm, dear
I only want to help
What is it about me that you fear?
Or is it really just someone else;
Somebody different from myself;
Whom you imagine I am when I come near?
Are you afraid I don't know my own strength?
I honestly haven't all that much
Do you think that I'm going to these great lengths?
Because there's something you have I need or want?
Perhaps you are right to shy away
You don't know me
I don't know you...
I only know that you're in pain
And seeing it; I feel pain too
Is there anyone else - someone close to you, in whom you can confide?
But if that were so... Why aren't you with them now?
Or were they the reason that made you cry?
Well if you choose to speak; I've the ears to hear
And if not that's alright too...
But if you've tears to cry; sorrows to impart 'til they're dried
Dear, I know what that's like
I really do
