holding back

holding back the tide for you

a mask apon my heart

feelings that i hide from view

so i can play my part

deep inside youl always be

i cannot let you go

yet in my eyes you wont see

i cannot let it show

i have to be what you need more

a hand for you to hold

to keep the shadows from your door

to help against the cold

so i will not look you in the eye

or offer you my heart

its no longer mine the reason why

youve owned it from the start
