Lift Me Up

Lately darling I,
I've got too much on my mind.
There's too much evil in this world,
Than I can hide.
You're telling me,
You can hardly see
The man behind the eyes.

Don't hesitate to lift me up,
Don't take your time, take mine.
Just sing the words right from your heart,
Baby, they don't have to rhyme.
Write me a note when you're feeling blue,
I'll read it word for word.
Then you'll come to me with your eyes all blurred,
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do...

Take the anger, take the strife.
Turn it into something good.
Even if I didn't ask you to,
Darling, I thought you always would.
You were always fighting hate,
Trying to adjudicate,
Between friend and friend.

Don't hesitate to lift me up,
Don't take your time, take mine.
Just sing the words right from your heart,
Baby, they don't have to rhyme.
Write me a note when you're feeling blue,
I'll read it word for word.
Then you'll come to me with your eyes all blurred,
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do...

Tired sure, but I'm okay.
Aren't those the words you always say?
Sunken heart and shallow breaths,
It's time to just lay down and rest...

And I won't hesitate to lift you up,
I'll your time, not mine.
I'm singing these words right from my heart;
Babe, I sure do hope they rhyme.
I'll write you a note when I'm feeling blue.
Read it word for word.
Then I'll come to you heart in my hands,
Tell me what I have to do...
