I can feel how you're slipping
Why you won't discuss
But I wanna be there to guide you
When you sink into your dreams
I'm not the listener that you are
And I may never be
But I know a little about loving
And a lullaby or two

The world has a way of letting you down
You have a way of your own
Therefore something has got to go
You must do your own leaving
If you'll make an honest attempt to sleep
I can hold you all through the night
I'll even come to your church and sing
But you must do your own crying

I'm sure you had your reasons
For not trusting me that much
But I hope you will reconsider
And let me rise to the occasion
I respect you for your jailbreak
I know damn well what you paid
Don't shut me out I beg you
We don't need another hero

The world has a way of letting you down
You have a way of your own
Therefore something has got to go
You must do your own leaving
If you'll make an honest attempt to sleep
I can hold you all through the night
I'll even come to your church and sing
But you must do your own crying
