(This started as an attempt at poetry. Turned out more lyrical)

Hide Away

Can you see me

Do you know that I am here?

Can you love me

Or do you only love your fear?

Does the past hold you so tightly

that yesterday is all?

The walls you’ve built within you

Will you never let them fall?

 

Hide away, Hide away

You wrap yourself up tight.

In arms that are not mine

And cry away your nights.

 

Hide away, Hide away

And cry away your nights.

That bottle on the table

Won’t ever make it right.

 

Tiny glimpses through the curtain

Is that really you?

Or do you have more shadows

To hide away your truth?

Is that you behind that smile

Needing to be free?

That spark behind your eyes

Is it looking back at me?

 

Hide away, Hide away

You wrap yourself up tight.

In arms that are not mine

And cry away your nights.

 

Hide away, Hide away

And cry away your nights.

That bottle on the table

Won’t ever make it right.

 

Are you a butterfly

Struggling ‘gainst your shell?

Will you take my hand

And drink deeply from the well?

Are you a moth

Too wild to be tamed?

Is it what you want

To be burned up by the flame?

 

Hide away, Hide away

You wrap yourself up tight.

In arms that are not mine

And cry away your nights.

 

Hide away, Hide away

And cry away your nights.

That bottle on the table

Won’t ever make it right.

 

I may not be just what you want

But I’m everything you need.

Don’t hide away your heart

It’s crying to be free..

 

Hide away, Hide away

You wrap yourself up tight.

In arms that are not mine

And we cry away our nights.
