Will you hold the torch, when I can't see,

Will you be the light to comfort me?


And when I'm alone, trapped in my dreams,

Can you shout louder to dim my screams?

Would you stay next to me through the night,

And when I'm angry too, without reason, without right?


Will you then stay with me till I wake,

Will you notice when my smile is fake?

Would you see that when I smile I cry,

Could you see how hard I try?


Would you stay with me till we're old and gray,

Will we stick together, every minute, everyday?

Will you not leave, no matter what fuss I cause,

Could you see beauty in my deepest flaws?


If I say I love you, would you say “I love you a lot”,

Will you understand that you're all Ive got?

Could you accept I am, and who I used to be

Will you love me, for only me?


And if you stay true, when all else is bad,

Then you'll be the friend I never had.
