It hurts me to see you so,
I swear it's true.
Watching and waiting is all I can do.
They always leave you but I never do.
I see you cry when you don't think I see,
All the tears you shed, they hurt me.
A comfort to you I can never be.
Your eyes, when me they see,
They scream, "Thou dost knowst me!"
Seeking, always, what's in a name,
Forever playing a forbidden game.
Holding back what we know is truth,
Getting other's to believe is like pulling tooth.
So here I sit and watch,
Seeing every blot.
Watching as you try and hide
Everthing that you keep inside.
Wishing that in me you'd find
Someone in which you can confide.
I have nothing for which you must be afraid.
