HERE FOR YOU NOW

I wish I had have told someone about your aching heart,
But I couldn’t bear to lose you or to see you torn apart.
So I kept it all inside me, which is what you have done too,
Now I watch you curl inside yourself because your heartaches hurting you.

I wish you had have let me yell and scream out to the world
About the guy who hurt you when you were a younger girl,
But instead I pushed it all away, it’s locked up with no key
Now I sit and watch you guarding, hoping no one else will see

I wish you had have warned me what you’d tell to me that night
I would have been prepared then and put up more of a fight
Because now I worry too much about the comments that they make,
I’m worried it will bring back all the memories of your fate.

I wish I had have told someone because I know it’s hurting you,
I see the way you hide your tears but I dont’ know what to do.
I watch you while you push away the one’s that love you so
Because you’re scared they’ll hurt you just the way that guy did nights ago.

Oh I am so sorry I wasn’t there for you when you needed me the most
And if I could turn back time I would.
you hold a strength so deep inside that no one else owns
Don’t be so scared, please don’t hide.
Because I’m here, Here for you now.

HERE FOR YOU NOW
