let me bare your pain...

By Sin

let me bare your pain tonight
and take away your tears
because the sadness in your eyes
weighs heavy on my soul


see yourself through my eyes
and know your worth


let me bestow upon you
the compassion that our god lacks
give you wings
so you can soar
and return to the sky where you belong


ill carry your cross
to ease your heavy burden
if youd only let me


so let go of all those past tragedies
and have faith in me


my love may be flawed
but it will never falter
and i feel your every injury as if it were my own
and every tear you cry
is multiplied in my eyes a hundred times over
and every time your broken heart beats in pain
another of my scars cracks open


so let your blood be not shed
and cry no more


let me bare your pain
after all
what are friends for
