I’d carry you if I could, my friend,
To save you burning out.
I know how hard you’re finding life
And what that’s all about.
I wish that I could make things fair
And help you get away.
It’s hard to watch you try to cope,
I don’t know what to say.
You shouldn’t have to feel like that,
It’s not what you deserve.
I don’t know why these things go on,
What purpose does it serve?
I’d hold you if I could, my friend,
I know your thoughts are black.
Perhaps, this time, you’ve gone so far
I’ll never pull you back.
