How can you say you love me
when you’ve never seen me cry?
when you’ve never heard the pieces
that keep breaking up inside
Or when the sky is dark and I’m restless in my bed
will you be the one to whisper
that the sun will rise ahead?
You’ve never seen the battle scars
that lay across my skin
the price I paid for love, and a joy that grew within
Sometimes the weight I carry
isn’t always feather light
will you pick it up and stand up straight,
brave against the fight?
There’s always room for fun and laughs
and a beauty to keep warm
but I’d never sail away with you
if you can’t survive the storm.
