Come and Sit by Me

When nothing is as it should be
And everything’s all out-of-wack,
Come, take rest, cut yourself slack,
Come and sit by me.

When you’re tired of making them happy
And they won’t look out for you,
Come, in peace, stop all the to-do,
Come and sit by me.

When you’re everything that you should be,
But your mask is starting to crack,
Come, guard down – I’ve got your back,
Come and sit by me.

When you carefully guard what they see
But still feel your heart is empty,
Come, dear heart, whoever you be,
Come and sit by me.

When you plan and decide what may be
And keep everything far away,
Come sit here – the world holds no sway,
Come and sit by me.

When the world offers no guarantee
And you don’t know who you can trust,
Come, care free, with doubts if you must,
Come and sit by me.

When you’ve planned everything perfectly
But the scariest thing is the silence,
Come, hear my voice, let’s form an alliance,
Come and sit by me.

When you fight and they call you a bully,
Not seeing that inside you care,
Come, trust, as brave as you dare,
Come and sit by me.

When you want everyone to be free
But you don’t even know who you are,
Come, take your time, my bright morning star,
Come and sit by me.
