When I felt like I was a fish in a tank

when I knew that i was walking the plank

Despite my facade, you saw through it all

You held me back before long fall.


Because you were there

You would care

And now I hear your call


When I grew sick of everything bad being clapped

And when time passed and it all went black

When I stopped thinking of what I had but what I lacked

When days slipped by yet they had no impact


You were there

You would care

And now I want you back


You tied me down and wouldn't let me go

When I was screaming and the worlds spin began to slow

When my hearts beat was forced and would no longer flow


you were there 

You would care

But where did you go?
