I might come across hard-faced
But that doesn’t mean I’m strong
I might seem like I can handle anything
But you couldn’t be more wrong.
I will speak out for things I believe in
Even if I’m cowering and shaking inside
I will stand up for those I feel are right
When all I really want to do is to hide.
I’ll carry your burdens as my own
Even if they cause me suffering and pain
I’ll do all I can to make you feel better
Although the stress will be driving me insane.
I’ll try to advise you the best I can
Even though my own advise I can’t heed
I’ll make sure you never feel alone
I’ll arrange you a support system, like the one I so need.
I promise to never let you down
Just call and I will come running to you
I’m just wondering how long it will take
For you to realise that… I’m hurting too.
