I Understand

Written by: Leonard Taormina

                            
Close your eyes dear lady; for this night everything is ck.
I understand your worries and how they’re dragging you down.
You feel like you’re a woman alone; against many that are stronger.
I understand; but this night I am here with you, so sleep if you can.

I can see that we’re both sorry; I see it in both of our eyes;
I’ve seen it in the tears we cry for each other and devotions beyond all hope.
I understand tonight; we’re sorry for more than what we’ve done to each other.
I see we are sorry for what it has done to us; and all we can do is endure.

I can tell it’s wearing you down; making believe we are only an agreement.
I know we agreed that together we can accomplish more as a team.
I understand I’m living my life like I’m prepared to do battle;
I know you understand why; and how it hurts you so.

I know you agreed to let me have you tonight; but you seem so fragile.
Feel me as I lay my hands on your head; I’m saying I’m here for you tonight.
I’ll never forget how it once was; I’ll always stand in your defense against harm.
Close your eyes dear lady; I’ll watch over you as you sleep because tonight;
                             “I Understand”
