At my foot is a diary
A lone piece of paper
There the results of my investigations
I'm searching for takers
I want you to ache with my aching
I'm a long way from home, carrying a message
Eager to send that message to you

Lend me your ears tonight
I'm venturing out, I'm leaving my shell
I just want you to hear me out
And it just won't feel right
Without someone to tell

Someone to help me through
Someone to walk in my worn shoes
To disconnect me from my stubborn shadow
To convince me that I have grown
And I'll set you free from your own
So run from your heartache
Run away from your shame
We will bury the troubles we've been fighting to tame

Lend me your ears tonight
I'm venturing out, I'm leaving my shell
I just want you to hear me out
And it just won't feel right
Without someone to tell

    General CommentSometimes you just want someone to listen to you and help you find yourself.

    General CommentAnd in turn he'll help her find herself, as well. Then they'll both have someone to tell -- each other.

    And to add to that, he's coming out, and it won't mean anything if he doesn't have someone to share it with and validate it all. If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? If he steps outside the box and there's no one around to witness it, has anything really changed?
