Trying to Help You Understand Me
I’m sorry that I hurt you
And you feel the same that’s true
Don’t let it tear us apart
For without you, I am blue.
You know that I love you
With all my heart and soul
Without you I am lost
For it is you that makes me whole.
I cannot promise all the things
That you want me to
But one thing I can promise
Is to never be untrue.
I may not wear a bra sometimes
Or my shorts may be a little high
I’m not out to attract anyone
Nor am I out to try.
I just want to survive
In this sweltering heat
So understanding that—
On common ground, can we not meet?
Don’t you know by now
In my eyes, you’re all I see?
And even though you drink too much
I still let you be.
I know that there’ll be times
That you are just plain ill
I may walk away for a while
But I promise to come back still.
I want you in my bed at night
As close as we can be
And though you might be in a bad mood
Please don’t pull away from me.
In case you still don’t know it
You are the meaning of my life
Without you I have nothing
Only heartache, loneliness, and strife.
