Where are you when I need you?
When I need you the most,
my heart has broken up into pieces with confusion in between.
The life’s that I have known shouldn’t ever been torn.
The people I knew thought they were the ones to be true.
But no it’s not right now when I found out tonight.
I need you now with me, comforting me,
telling me that things will turn out alright.
What did I do wrong?
I need some answers for the tears I cry,
or it won’t help anymore if I just sit
and stare at the people I’ve once known to be fair
and kind through this time.
Where were you when I needed you?
You’ve gone away at the time I’ve needed you most.
Please tell me it will be okay,
and I will live through this without a worry in sight
and your love for me will always be here to guide me through this night.
So please remember who I am
and don’t forget I’m your friend.
I want you here by my side,
willing to stand up for me, loving me,
and willing to be that one I need you to be.
