i could hazard a guess
but i’ll never know
why you put these walls up
i can’t get through
it’s as though you want
to be lonely and blue

sometimes it feels
like nobody knows
you wanna be alone now
hidden from view
feels as though the whole world
is comin’ for you

maybe i know
maybe i don’t
makes no difference you know
i’m here if you want
here if you want
here if you want

people don’t hunger
only for food
how easy that would be
so basic and crude
there’s so much more you need
just to help nourish you

so if you’ve decided
you’ve hungered too long
and your sick and tired
of being alone
i want you to know
i’m here if you want
here if you want
here if you want

maybe i know
maybe i don’t
makes no difference you know
i’m here if you want
here if you want
here if you want
here if you want
here if you want

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song
    reminds me of a friend
    good on the live album when josh's phone rings...

    General CommentA sweet and simple song about longing for love, about patience for the things that matter the most, and continuing to show love even when it is not being well received. There is something so magnificent about the tune and the words of this song that in combination speak to the heart. A woman reminding her loved one repeatedly: I'm here if you want. Although he may be searching everywhere but the place in which she is, she still chants: I'm here if you want. Self-less love. Perhaps there is a scorned lover who is putting up walls for protection, and the woman who cares for him is trying to tear down these walls. And perhaps all she can do is wait patiently, show him love, and be available.

    General Commenti love the waifs :D
    at the moment i cannont get enough of this
    song and its probaly because i can relate to it.
    its clearly about being with someone, and suddenly something is going on in their life yet they don't want to talk about it with you and therefore they just
    shut you out completely.
    for the girl her heart is aching
    as she becomes frustrated with waiting.
