I want you

but it hurts 

I feel you 

but I don’t know

the path

we should take

 

I hear you 

when you call

I sense you 

if you fall

will our souls

then awake  

 

When I was little

I had so many dreams

now they’re broken and ripping 

and fraying at the seams 

Please help me remember who I am 

Please help me to make another plan

 

You pulled me

closer in

before I

could begin

to remember

our past

 

Like shadows in a stream

these scattered 

sunlit beams

light a life

that could last

 

When I was little

I had so many dreams

now they’re broken and ripping 

and fraying at the seams 

I’ll help you to find another way

You’ll help me to never be afraid

I see the mirror in your eyes

in their reflection

I can see your pain

& hear your spirit cry

If you could see what I believe

I know your hurt could heal

and then my dear you’ll start recovery 

 

Nothing can stop us now

Nothing can hold us down

Fighting through all our lives

Strong when you're by my side 

 

Your memories hold no power now

if you can set them free

on gentle seas

the current will allow

The child within can then forgive 

the wrongs that  punished you

and threatened your ability to live

 

Nothing can stop us now

Nothing can hold us down

Fighting through all our lives

Strong with you by my side 

 

On the breeze forgotten stories

time will ease your pain no more is

Never fear the end

It will not come 

Until you reach your final goal

My dear don’t fear

the whirlwind in your soul 

will clear the storm no longer here

 

Heal me, feel me

know that love is always here

It’s time to leave behind your past

and make a start

to open up your heart
