Better

Better

I don’t need you to feel my pain
I only need you to acknowledge it
So I don’t have to bear it alone

I don’t need you to dress my wounds
I only need you to give me shelter
So I can take the time to heal

I don’t need you to be my brother
I only need you to see me as I am
And not a monster to be afraid of

I don’t need you to fear I’ll get ahead
I only need you stand your ground
As we wait for the whistle to blow

I don’t need you to give me a head start
I only need you to run a fair race
So we both have the same chance to win

I don’t need you to forgive my sins
I only need you to accept me
As a fellow flawed human being

I don’t need you to think I think only I hurt
I need you to know I know you hurt too
Our anguish is one more thing we share

I don’t need you to tell me it gets better
I only need you to stay here with me
And you’ll see – it gets better already
