    You said that you hurt inside
    tired of the the pain that resides
    in the place where love should thrive
    there is a broken heart that's barely alive

    You said each day ominous cloulds
    of despair cast shadows on
    whats left of your joy
    inspiring you to seek shelter
    in the illusion of love that
    imposters build with your dreams
    and tear down with their lies

    You said you lost yourself
    in the emotional ocean
    and the undertow is carrying
    your happiness further into the sea
    and tryin to get back to the
    essence of you
    means fighting
    crashing waves of depression
    in order to get to the shore
    of self-esteem so you can
    know true love

    You said it's so hard
    You said it's so hard
    by your lonesome

    If I could travel the universe
    and bring back your peace
    I would pack today
    so it hurts me that all
    I can do is listen and pray

    But when you walk through the door
    greet me with silence
    lay your head on my chest
    and unwind
    just know that I'm here for you
    and I hear you even when you
    say nothing
