I'd be for you

By
A smile is the only comfort I have found
That forms the voice that is to me, the sweetest sound
I am nothing more than what I am, but I'd be for you
Everything it takes to make this world brand new

A word that's not worth saying to those fragile eyes
If my heart can only look at you in its disguise
In a world where I don't have to hide behind this apathy
I'd show you everything you've come to be for me

Holding on to everything I thought was best
Teaching my cruel feet to turn upon the rest
Your unknowing eyes, my fatal cries, you held me tight
Hoping I would make the choice we know is right
Running from the dangers my heart won't withstand
I am weak and won't do justice to your injured hand

Learning how to be stronger than I really am
Wishes are the dreamers' most pathetic sham
Selfish for the tears cried on your shoulder
Please give me time to get a little older

Someday I'll make the stars sing out your name
And show you I never meant to make this a foolish game
My head is sore, my heart is stripped, scattered here
Is everything I hid from you; my greatest fears

Holding on to everything I thought was best
Teaching my cruel feet to turn upon the rest
Your unknowing eyes, my fatal cries, you held me tight
Hoping I would make the choice we know is right
Running from the dangers my heart won't withstand
I am weak and won't do justice to your injured hand

If I let you in now, would it still be too late?
Or are these thoughts of you the lethal error of my fate?
You'll hear these words, and then you'll walk right out
No song can forgive the failed choices of our doubt

Holding on to everything I thought was best
Teaching my cruel feet to turn upon the rest
Your unknowing eyes, my fatal cries, you held me tight
Hoping I would make the choice we know is right
You'll hear these words, and then you'll walk right out
No song can forgive the failed choices of our doubt
