Relief

Sleeping next to you
We don’t say the words we need
The nights get lonely
Would it be easier living without me

You watch as I tumble down
You watch as I fall to the ground
Would you pick me up and piece me back together
Would you stand me up and love me forever

Am I someone you want
Am I someone you need
Are you happy now
Or are we part of the lost and found

You watch me as I crawl on the floor
You watch me as I beg for more
Would you give me some relief
