To keep me safe he holds me tight To keep me in he stays the night I have to sleep he’s shaking me awake to think and worry He cools my hands to warm my heart He dries my throat to slow my start I want to talk He’s hushing me still to think and worry To keep me safe he whispers lies of people and their evil eyes I need to love He’s keeping me alone to think and worry He lays me flat to keep me whole He feasts on flesh and on my soul I want to die He’s telling me to stop the thought and worry I’m hugging him to let him go I feel I need him even though he hurt me I will miss him still Goodbye to thought and worry
