BURDENS

If you should start feeling bad,
because something is bothering you,
maybe instead of feeling sad
you should find something to look forward to

Something you may like to do,
that helps distract you from your pain,
because if  you keep talking about it all the time through,
the bad feeling you have inside even may remain

It could get so bad it nearly drives you insane,
so try to focus on something else instead:
Because I don't you to go through this ever again
I would like to see you get it out of your head

I still remember, where times before the situation led,
so before you think about it - try to calm down:
You could focus on good times that are ahead,
maybe we can talk later on - remember you are not alone

Even if you feel you're on your own,
I could be there anytime you need someone
- you might only need call me on the phone,
I'd come around - maybe soon your trouble might be gone

Together I'm sure we'd get it done,
we might just need to talk to change your sight:
It is possible that some time much later on,
you will see that even a heavy burden being shared could feel light


DON'T GO

I know exactly how you feel,
so I'm begging you to stay:
I just want your heart to heal,
I'll be there for you - come whatever may

The bad times will pass you by
- after every down there is a high,
so please - won't you at least let me try,
to just for a time help your soul to fly?

I know how you're hurting deep inside,
but after each down it will also go up again...
This is something that you just can't hide,
so let me do what it takes to lessen your pain

You're wanted - you're needed
- so please - just don't go
Please do as I pleaded:
Wait until the good times will show
Can't you see - I don't want you to go there
- I don't want you to go because I care

Is there some way to help you through
- just to help you through another day?
There's nothing that I wouldn't do,
just to get you back onto your way

I wish you knew what I can see
- the person inside that should be set free
You so much deserve to live on happily:
I want you to be whoever you feel you want to be

I don't want you to feel as bad
- I can't stand to see you hurt down to the core
I hate having to see you as sad
- let us together find a good reason to be staying for

You're wanted - you're needed
- so please - just don't go
Please do as I pleaded:
Wait until the good times will show
Can't you see - I don't want you to go there
- I don't want you to go because I care

I believe times will get better again,
so don't let yourself be defeated by your pain:
Any other way is worth a try
- so please stay here - I don't want you to die

You're wanted - you're needed
- so please - just don't go
Please do as I pleaded:
Wait until the good times will show
Can't you see - I don't want you to go there
- I don't want you to go because I care

I want you to stay here
- just let me make this very clear:
You're not alone, whatever you will do,
because I'll always stay with you


DO YOU REALLY NEED TO HEAR...?

Do I really have to say
what I'm feeling about you?
Isn't there another way
to make you able to get a clue?

Am I not showing what I feel
every time we get to share?
Don't you understand it's real
any time I'm being there?

Why do I need words to express
what's going on inside of me?
Why do you want me to confess
what with your eyes you don't seem to see?

Don't you know what's inside my heart?
Is it really so hard to understand?
Don't you see how I miss you when we're apart?
That what's between us is not built on sand?

Do you still think that I might go away
even though there is so much I keep to do?
Don't you understand that I will always stay
simply because I care so much for you?

Are there really words you need to hear
to be able to believe what's going on inside?
Didn't I already make it clear?
Is there really so much I hide?

Didn't you notice my feelings grow
- no matter if you're close or far?
Didn't you see how they started to show?
Do I really have to say I love you for who you are?
