Just Whisper Softly

September 7, 2011
I just want someone to care about me—
A feeling beyond being polite.
Someone to whisper softly,
“Everything’s gonna be alright.”

The pain still stabs me deeply,
And I sometimes shiver with fright.
So won’t you whisper softly,
“Everything’s gonna be alright.”?

I look around and feel so lonely,
Knowing you don’t care tonight.
But please just whisper softly,
“Everything’s gonna be alright.”

Please, once, just notice me.
I lie here crying every night.
Won’t you whisper softly,
“Everything’s gonna be alright.”?

What I want from you is easy:
Stay close to me—hold me tight.
Please just whisper softly,
“Everything’s gonna be alright.”

I tried bridging us continuously,
But is it even worth the fight?
I just want you to whisper softly,
“Everything’s gonna be alright.”

You made me promise that we’d stay friends,
So is it too much to ask for one last night?
Just whisper to me in the end,
“Everything will be alright.”
