If I had known what was going wrong,
I would have been there
If I had seen what you were feeling,
the winds around would have spun me a tornado strong enough to save you
and I would have taken a whole barn out of its place to find you, comfort you.
These days I am more angry than sad
No longer able to stand knowing what happens to good people.
But Of course, I am late to the funeral, And it seems to be a trend.
And God! it burns a hole in my head!
Because I would have done something, anything,
And I wish I knew how you are feeling, even though I’ll never comprehend it
And I wish I knew what goes on in your thoughts when the darkness seeps neath closed doors and windows,
And even if you do not want it –
I will try to hold a candle out for you to take. To burn away what hate hath break –
When the time comes I just hope someone can hold me back
And tie me up in the thickest of chains,
For if this ever happens to someone I care about, I will hunt them till the ends of the earth
And you may pray that an Earthly force will hold me back.
But Even I doubt that.
Now I can take some sort of stand to amend for my sins
Even though they do not stain my own soul.
May God have my back,
May you have my reason
May I never again not know
How you are Doing.
