I would get you the stars and moon,
if it would help you to fly high,
but realise it’s just a dream,
to be floating up on high.
I would conquer all your fears,
if that would make you smile,
but realise they are not real,
but understanding takes a while.
I would go to the end of time,
to help you to start again,
but realise I might bring back,
those days so full of pain.
I would march into kingdoms,
put you on a throne,
but realise it wouldn’t change,
you’d still feel so alone.
I would demand all stars to shine
spotlights down on you,
but realise it wouldn’t work,
it wouldn’t please you too.
I like to gather all the love in the world,
and place it on your knee,
but I realise your not wanting that,
it’s just enough from me.
