It wears me out

If I could be who you wanted
Could you show me the way?
Can you teach me, nudge me, candle me?
Could you, shove me, prompt me, and lovingly guide me?
Can you back me up?
Could you just give me a boost?

If I could be who you wanted
Can you give me all the answers?
Could you give me a clue or hum the tune?
Can you fix all my mistakes?
Make it easy for me?
Can you tell me what to do?

Could you do it every day?

If I could be who you wanted
Can you light the way, pave the road?
Could you blaze the trail?
Can you hold me up and clear the way?
Fight my battles?
But can I take the road less travelled?

Because for a minute there, I lost myself.

If I could be who you wanted
Can you encourage me, nourish me?
Could you provide a sanctuary?
Give me the mantra, make a diva out of me?
Could you give me the right advice?
Can you just drive me there?

If I could be who you wanted all the time
…It wears me out.

It wears me out
