This melody came into my mind today. Maybe the words showed up there first. Not sure.
I have set aside everything I love.
I have saved everything else for you.
I cannot decide
what this doubt’s made of.
Though I’ve thought over it through and through.
In a book, in a box high upon a shelf
In a locked and guarded vault
Are the things I keep only for myself.
It’s your fate but it’s not your fault.
And for every useless reason I know
There’s a reason not to care.
If I hide myself wherever I go
Am I ever really there?
There is nowhere else I would rather be, but I can’t just be right here.
An enigma wrapped in a mystery,
Or a fool consumed by fear.
I will give you all I could ever give.
Though it’s less than you will need.
Could you just forget, if you can’t forgive
All the things I cannot concede?
