Be With You

© Anne Sumner 2013

Always said, your heart was in the right place
But something came and drove us to the edge
Tried my best to see myself the way you saw me
But I don't see how you felt the way you did
And now that we've come this far
Is this really where we are? 
'Cause all of my choices are leading me to tears
And I don't even trust my heart

Can't help but feel my hands are tied
Back and forth a thousand times
Spell it out in all honesty
All of the things that can never be
Lately we just go around and round
Talking it up and then backing down
Feeling things I never knew
When all I want is to be with you
To be with you

I tried my best to make myself the victim but it
It isn't right to let you take the blame
I wonder if the roles were changed and you were reaching out
Would I be treating you the same?
'Cause it hurts when you walk away
When I have so much left to say
And you think that you're helping by leaving me to grieve
When you know it doesn't work that way

Can't help but feel my hands are tied
Back and forth a thousand times
Spell it out in all honesty
All of the things that can never be
Lately we just go around and round
Talking it up and then backing down
Feeling things I never knew
When all I want is to be with you
To be with you

Who can tell where broken hearts lead to
If I find I can't hide the truth
So to hell with the outcome, I don't care what it costs
'Cause I'll always be loving you

Can't help but feel my hands are tied
Back and forth a thousand times
Spell it out in all honesty
All of the things that can never be
Lately we just go around and round
Talking it up and then backing down
Feeling things I never knew
When all I want is to be with you
o be with you
