A PERSONAL THOUGHT.

YOU’RE ALWAYS THERE, JUST WAITING
WHEN I CLING TO OTHER THINGS.
YOU’RE ALWAYS THERE, JUST WAITING,
AS I DO MY LINGERING.

YOU’RE ALWAYS THERE, STILL LOVING
WHEN I’M NOT SO LOVING TO YOU,
YOU’RE ALWAYS THERE, STILL LOVING
NO MATTER WHAT IT IS I DO.

YOU’RE ALWAYS HERE, NEVER LEAVING
WHEN I GIVE SO MANY GOOD REASONS TO GO,
YOU’RE ALWAYS HERE, NEVER LEAVING
AFTER ALL THE TIMES I TELL YOU, “NO”.

YOU’RE ALWAYS NEAR, NEVER CHANGING,
ALWAYS WANTING TO CHANGE MY HEART,
YOU’RE ALWAYS NEAR, NEVER CHANGING,
READY TO GIVE ME ANOTHER START.

YOU’RE ALWAYS CLOSE BY, WATCHING ,
EVEN THOUGH I CONTINUE TO IGNORE
YOU’RE ALWAYS CLOSE BY, WATCHING
AND I REMEMBER IT’S ME YOU ADORE.


LIKE A CHILD THAT STANDS CORRECTED
TO HIS MOTHER, HERE I STAND.
PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR LOVING ANYTHING BEFORE YOU-
PLEASE LEAD ME BY MY HAND.
