I'm Back

Let me rise up from those ashes that you swept under the rug
I’ve been gone for far too long, and although it’s not enough;
I’d like to say I’m sorry for all the times you’ve felt alone
All those times that you were crying while I was safe at home
I can’t help but blame myself for you slipping far astray
Back into the darkness from those many painful days
It’s a monster, and you know it; you know it all too well
I refuse to let you walk back into that sick, confusing hell
At least let me come with you, for I can’t just watch again
And this time when it hurts you, know you have a friend
Don’t even tell me of the truth my words always seem to lack
Because this time, I mean it; I swear I’ve got your back
