You Never Complain

You Never Complain

You have a fear of letting people down

You avoid the places where you’re needed

I’ll ignore the hole you dug for yourself

You never wanted me to see that much, I know

But so what? I love you

You tell me it’s only for the night

By the morning you fell to your knees And just for a moment you saw the world through my eyes

So don’t tell me you’re in pain

Because darling, I’m hurting too

I tried my best to hold you

And as tight as I might hold you

You are still slipping

But I’ll still come home and hold you tight, so tight as if it never happened at all.
