All of the pains of the world
all of the ache i withstand,
my anger and fury subside
all by just holding your hand.
My happiness in life would suffer,
my strength would grow weak and unused,
if you were not right there to save me
your love and care i can't lose.
I walked alone for many years
with no one to open my eyes,
I was numb to the pain that surrounded me,
used to the tears and the lies.
With words, loudly spoken, i was enslaved,
with my own desire for love, fully blinded,
my heart was full with empty promises,
and sadness and loneliness lined it.
A friend, someone to guide me,
someone so caring and true,
was all i needed, all along,
then, in my life, there came you.
