I have so much to tell you, but I don't know what to say.

Don't ask me to go through this night
without you to sleep at my side
You know this will not turn out right
and it's not because I haven't tried
I know I can't force you to be
the man that you were yesterday
It's just that when you look at me
I haven't a clue what to say

Don't ask me to suffer the sight
of things only we two can see
You know I can't put up a fight
with you when I'm trying to flee
It isn't that I haven't cried
each morning since you went away
It isn't like I've never lied
but now I don't know what to say

Don't ask me to stand in the light
when you know I'd much rather hide
Don't say things will all turn out right
when we're losing a battle inside
I know I can't force you to see
each empty prayer that I pray
I can't force you to listen to me
and I still cannot find what to say
