In the dark of the night I remember,
In the scurry at noon I forget.
Adult walls can't hide eyes like two embers
That burn heirlooms of awe and regret.

Memories float before my eyes
Dressed up just like dreams.
I know the faces cross the lines
But don't know what that means.

Do you love me?

Close the door.
Don't let them hurt me.
Close the door.
Don't let them trick me
Again.
Close the door.
I don't want to see.
Close the door.
Send me back to sleep.
I never dreamed the water was so deep.

How did I get so far from land?
I tried to find a way to float.
I'll show them all that I can stand.
I'll turn this flood into a moat.

And yet I did not think it through.
Each stone cuts off a ray of light.
The day light darkens to a tomb -
Must safety come from coward flight?

So scoff and mock and point the finger
At those who feel as I once did.
And still the questions rise and linger
If I was wrong to shut the lid.

These castle walls I hide behind
Appear to keep me safe from pain.
But deep in dark I'm sighted blind.
Was prison worth such meager gain?

I won't play the fool again.
I won't be the one to lose.
When a road comes near the end
I'm the one who gets to choose.
I abuse before I'm used.

Do you love me?

Although I hide him from the scoffers
That little boy is always home.
He asks me why his toys are broken
And he's kept locked up all alone.

I seek for words that might explain
I act for his own good.
I try so hard to make it plain -
But he'd leave me if he could.

He'd leave me if he could.
