Take Care

i know you've been hurt by someone else,
i can tell by the way you
carry yourself.
if you let me,
here's what i'll do
i'll take care of you.

i've loved and i've lost...

you've seen all my mistakes,
they were not hidden so well, were they?
i never covered them up,
not so good anyway.
i've tried,
i always try,
and in the end,
doesn't the good outweigh the bad?
didn't my heartfelt, sincere honest ways,
make any difference?

didn't they?

doesn't the fact that i'm standing here,
right now,
with nothing to hide,
nothing to gain,
and everything to lose...
doesn't that mean anything?

so if you let me,
here's what i'll do,
i'll stop the insanity,
start myself over,
believe in myself,
have trust in your love,
have faith in your kindness,
and have strength and conviction
to make things right for us,
and i promise you this,
i'll take care of you.

u needed me

the clock is ticking
the ticks and tocks get louder by the minute.
the cook-oo
sounds louder than a train wreck,
it's deafening.
i know my time is almost up,
i understand i overstood my stay,
but i didn't think that it had gotten so bad,
made you so upset,
effected you this way...
had i,
i would have bowed out a long time ago.
cause the truth is,
it's not that easy for me either.
just cause i got it together n look so good,
doesn't mean that deep inside,
i aint trippin'
but i know now what i have to do,
i'll make my exit now,
or rather, very soon.
and then, once i'm gone,
you'll have time enough alone,
without anyone,
to make you see that,
in fact....

you needed me.
