Put Me at Ease

Today
I'm at a loss for words
Just like the time before
A mute, I've grown to be
Today
I have no other thoughts
I'm blank and blind
And you just see through... everything

I've got no reason to keep anything at all from you.

So right now
I want you to tell me what you want me to be
And right now
I want you to tell me what you need
Right now
You are all that I have to see
To be at ease

Sometime
I promised myself that I
Would make it all worthwhile
I'd step back and explain all of my reasoning
Sometime
If you're not around
I know that I won't
Be able to pick myself back up if I just happen to fall

I'll just happen to fall...

So right now
I want you to tell me what you want me to be
And right now
I want you to tell me what you need
Right now
You are all that I have to see
To be at ease

I wish I were the one you turned to.
I wish I were the only thing you need.
I wish I could fly and carry you up with me.
To dance on the clouds and twirl above the sea.

I want you to tell me who to be.

So right now
I want you to tell me what you want me to be
And right now
I want you to tell me exactly what you need
Right now
You are all that I have to see
You're the only thing I need
You're the only one that'll ever be able
To put me at ease
