So today I wrote a song for you
Cause a day can get so long
And I know it's hard to make it through
When you say there's something wrong

So I'm trying to put it right
Cause I want to love you with my heart
All this trying has made me tight
And I don't know even where to start

Maybe that's a start

For you know it's a simple game
That you play filling up your head with rain
And you know you've been hiding from your pain
In the way, in the way you say your name

And I see you
Hiding your face in your hands
Flying so you wont land
You think no one understands
No one understands

So you hunch your shoulders and you shake your head
And your throat is aching but you swear
No one hurts you, nothing could be sad
Anyway you're not here enough to care

And you're so tired you don't sleep at night
As your heart is trying to mend
You keep it quiet but you think you might
Disappear before the end

And it's strange how you cannot find
Any strength to even try
To find a voice to speak your mind
When you do, all you wanna do is cry

Well maybe you should cry

And I see you hiding your face in your hands
Talking bout far-away lands
You think no one understands
Listen to my hands

And all of this life
Moves around you
For all that you claim
You're standing still
You are moving too
You are moving too
You are moving too
I will move you

    I think Alexi Murdoch wrote this song to a girl. A girl that he loves and cares about deeply. She hides how she really feels from the world, but Alexi can she inside her. He see that she goes through life with a smile on her face and making everything seem fine, but in reality at the end of the day, she's in pain and unhappy. She cries and expresses her feelings in private, not letting anyone else see. If asked, she tells everyone she's fine and nothing's wrong. He loves her so that he will be there for her and try to help mend her bleeding heart in any way he can. He wants to help put things right so that he is able to love her with all of his heart. He wrote this song to tell her that he is willing to be her shoulder to lean, and the hands to help her up.
