IF THE WORLD ALLOWED ME

If the world allowed me 
I’d hold you now 
I wrap the thought around me 
To calm me down  

When I call you  
You’re hardly there  
You look right through me 
Like you don't care  

If the world allowed it 
You know  
I’d be there now  

To hold you  
To keep you  
Forgive me  
But I  
  
I’ve got to lock it down  
Until it’s over  
You have to understand  
We’re not over, over

  

Were you pretending  
All this time?  
How could I miss all 
The warning signs? 

I need to be there  
To make you smile  
To hold you 
To keep you  
Forgive me  
But I  
  
I’ve got to lock it down  
Until it’s over  
You have to understand  
We’re not over, over
