Never Leave
Author: Shorty


So many tears youíve wiped away
ďI will never hurt youĒ, these sweet words you say
Never wanting me to feel any hurt
Trying to protect me from the world,
Because when Iím in your arms weíre safe
Fantasizing about running away
You wish out loud ďIím gonna come steal you awayĒ,
You always hold me so close, itís like youíre so scared that if you let go Iíll never come back.
Listening when I have a problem,
Cheering me up when Iím down,
Youíre always apologizing for things I hear or that your friends say,
Pretending I am so fragile that if I hear something wrong Iíll break.

Crying in the rain, you hold me close.
You hold me in your jacket to keep me warm.
ďAre you sure you donít want my jacket, because Iím not coldĒ, your little white lies to make sure Iím safe and that Iím never uncomfortable.
Always apologizing for things you think might have mislead me,
Youíre in my heart, my arms arenít the only thing youíre keeping warm when you hold me.
This is the way I hope weíll stay,
With a passion that makes our friends jealous,
And a shoulder to lean on whenever we need anything.
