Your harsh words Your accusing gaze Thinking you can read my mind Thinking I'm like everyone else You've been let down You've been stepped on It's not okay Blaming, seeking to protect You create your shell Anger is frail Your shell will shatter And you'll be left with grief You won't be okay. You don't realize You think you can maintain It won't last forever Let me in now Let me in and I'll help Trust, and we'll fix this Trust, and I'll make you whole Give me your grief Give me your burden Let me ease it from you I won't let you down I won't step on you It will be okay
