You hide your heart beneath an angel’s smile

And pretend that it’s okay

You laugh and joke but all the while

You cry in pain each day

I want to help, you know I do

But you barely let me in

Though my heart belongs to you

You just wont hear a thing

I’m reaching out, but you wont grab on

I’m scared you’ll fall away

I want to say ‘your fears are gone

and I’ll keep them at bay’

We all have scars we dont like to show

I, perhaps more than most

But over time, only good will grow

If you choose to hold me close

I’m here to see you in decline

And to catch you if you fall

But I pray to god that you’ll be mine

And one day we shall have it all
