Open and Here

You gave chance a last glance
As he walked out of the bedroom
This is how all flirtations should end
Turning on your side you’ve got
Just enough light to guide you
This is how you’re feeling don’t pretend

What do you want me to feel?
I am open
What do you want me to be?
I am here

Turning up this evening
With that wasted smile on your face
“Have you got a minute, made for me?”
Sitting on the sofa
With your legs curled up beneath you
“You make me feel guilty, here’s my plea”

“This makes me feel worthless
This makes me lower than the dirt
Empty , grieving silence hurts so bad”
Well I’ve heard a million verses
While you’ve play-acted the chorus
You made your decision, named your terms

What do you want me to say?
I have spoken
What do you want me to do?
I have offered
What do you want me to feel?
I am open
What do you want me to be?
I am here

Say it with me… I am here
Do it with me… I am here
Feel it with me… I am here
Be it with me… I am here
