Our meeting was one way

My life has been, what can I say?

They can make my day or life

or cut through it with a knife

 

When they’re happy, I am

When they’re not, neither am I

They’re new to me

but I can see

 

They haven’t told it all

but they’ve answered my call

I thought I was lost

but there is a cost

 

They know it all

everytime I fall

It’s hard to know me well

I’m sometimes hard to tell

 

I want this to work

bad enough that it hurts

each time we talk

they never want to walk

 

I’m a lot to handle

the fire of a candle

but I have a heart

stored away in the dark

 

They found the place

the path theirs to trace

It’s almost scary

such a rarity

 

They see themself as a pain

I see it as a gain

I know they’ve seen a lot

without it being caught

 

They said I deserve a better

No, I deserve a getter

Someone to be there

When no one else is there to care

 

I won’t lose them

not like a simple rim

They mean more

then my own core

 

I want to help

them be themself

I want them to get there

out of their own hair

 

I know I’m the same

playing that game

but they’re all I have

to be myself too
