Lyrics

What do you do
When you find someone
Who's been through hell
With no place to run

How do you try
To reach inside
And break the shell
From which they hide

I wish I knew the simple things - you're fragile
I wish that I could spread your wings - so fragile

I wanna make it go away
At least for another day
Can I make it go away for you

How do you look
Into those eyes
So beautiful
It's no surprise

How do you know
What things to say
When all you can do
Is hope for a way

I wish I knew the simple things - you're fragile
I wish that I could spread your wings - so fragile

I wanna make it go away
At least for another day
Can I make it go away for you

I couldn't stop staring at you
Knowing all the things that you've been through
I couldn't help but want to hold you tight
And make it through just one more night

How do you stare
Into a soul
So beautiful
And not let go

How do you try
To understand
What has been lost
In the touch of a hand

I wish I knew the simple things - you're fragile
I wish that I could spread your wings - so fragile

I wanna make it go away
At least for another day
Can I make it go away for you

I wanna make it go away
At least I can try to say
Can I break it all away for you, you, you
