You are bleeding so bad
But you don’t even blink
I try to mend you
But you don’t know
Why I’m trying to hard

I thought I could save you
I thought I could bring you relief
But you ache without knowing
Shunning my hands away

And I know too much to ignore the sight
I’m the one in pain
Though you are the one who’s injured

Love, I should give you love
But how long I can stand When you just don’t stop?
All you expect from me
Ever silent and light
Fit inside your palm

I see all the wasted chances
What can I ask though
When you just can’t stop
Being what you’ve always been?

You are my dear painless child
You were here before me
But you still remain the same
Wish I could say
that love will suffice
