I can't seem to speak my mind as of late
Lest what I say will only twist and complicate
Yeah, I know you don't need this added weight
I see you carry the world on your shoulderblades

But we talked about our pasts and what we're going through right now
And though I barely even know you I found solace in your words somehow
But to take advantage of your situation is something I just can't allow
But still I'm begging you... Please don't shut me out

'Cause I would take on all your pain
If it meant you'd find happiness for just a day
And I would drown in all your rain
Just let the tears flow down and carry me away

Never let them bring you down
Just follow your heart 'til you find steady ground
And don't let anything cause you harm
If you want to you can find shelter in my arms

I know your priority is two sweet angels
And there's a demon causing only betrayal
But I know that you can turn the tables
You're stronger and you're stable
And you're way much more than able

So don't give in, you have control
I promise you, you're never alone
Because nothing can touch your immortal soul
And no one can break your heart of gold
It's crazy but somehow I know although I was never told

'Cause I would take on all your pain
If it meant you'd find happiness for just a day
And I would drown in all your rain
Just let the tears flow down and carry me away

Never let them bring you down
Just follow your heart 'til you find steady ground
And don't let anything cause you harm
If you want to you can find shelter in my arms

So please don't cry, my arms are open wide
And if you need some company I'll stand right at your side
Through thick and thin, through every problem
However high you fall I swear I'll meet you at the bottom

And I'll carry you on broken wings
I swear I owe you everything...
Because you taught me how to feel again
Just hearing your voice helps me heal again

Because I've been broken but never knew
While offering shelter I'd find mine in you
