"Softly" as written by and Gordon Lightfoot....
All that I had
All gets mixed up in my head
Alone every night
I've been locked up by myself
Far away from you

All rested while my shoes are off to dream
I feel tested while I walk along the seam
Don't be frightened when I yell at you softly
Startled when I hear my life's insanity

Pictures of you
Still right beside my bed
Cannot wonder why
I don't have permission to
Taken my mind, too
All the things can go wrong
When you don't get very far
Cause I don't like you
When you're feeling down on yourself
