I'll Be Your Rock


United States

I'll be there when your world collapses

I'll be there every time you get hurt

I'll be there every time the sadness creeps in like a cold fog under a streetlight at midnight

I'll break my own back so you can have a spine

I'll go without anything in the world so you can feel supported 

I'm here to serve

I'll mask everything for your benefit

I'll be your rock

After all, a rock feels no pain and an island never cries

It's breaking me.
