When I don’t feel safe in my own place,

when my heart has been broken again,

you are always here to help me up.

I’m not good at returning the favor,

and I only know how to hurt others,

so I fail them again and again.

Just once I want to be there for you.

Just once I want to show that I care,

To be there just once when it counts.

Will this be my just once?

Will you let me be there?

Will I know how to show it?

To show that I care?

I don’t ever want to be the cause

For you to walk away from here.

I don’t know how to show it-

I’d scream it from the hilltop.

Just tell me how to show care.

Tell me how to show my love.

Don’t focus on me when you hurt.

Let me pour my love on you.

Those Horrible Eyes

Those horrible eyes look back at me.

Those horrible eyes are open but do not see.

Those horrible eyes are dull and glazed.

Those horrible eyes have seen too much to be fazed.

Those horrible eyes tell a story.

Those horrible eyes have lost their glory.

Those horrible eyes reveal a heart that’s broken.

Those horrible eyes show me a soul that’s leaden.

Those horrible eyes lack the life that filled her, my dears.

Those horrible eyes are glassy with all her tears.

Those horrible eyes I wish would stop staring.

Those horrible eyes show a heart that’s stopped caring.

Those horrible eyes won’t stop looking at me.

Those horrible eyes are mine, you see.
