If I were perfect, you'd never cry
there'd be no tears, no silver trails
My hands would never have to dry
your shaking body, cold and frail
"Why," I bitterly choke aloud
after shutting closed the phone
Why am I here crying now
In the cold outside, alone
When I gently questioned you
asked if you would be alright
My sense of desperation grew
you said "I'll have to be, tonight"
Have I really done
all that I can do?
I've already failed some
now will I fail you?
It's so cold out here tonight
so small under the sky
The full moon at its bright full height
Teary stars inside my eyes
I want to see your smile
