You're supposed to be the one
Who wipes away mytears,
And you're supposed to be the one
Who washes away myfears.
You're supposed to be the one
Who listens when I am sad,
Andyou're the only one,
Who understands and lets me just be mad.

So why isit,
We've somehow switched roles?
Now you're the one who cries to me
Ofthings that are untold.

You tell me how your life's so sad
And how itis somehow incomplete.
But how is it that, when you have me?
Ah, I amsprung from your only hate.

Well, I'm sorry I have his eyes andsmile,
My brothers have his face.
But can't you see we have yourheart
For you are our saving grace.
