I wish you would
Touch my cheek and say you’ll never leave
Mess up my hair and tackle me to the ground
Smile at me and call me crazy
Tell me you’ll take care of me.

I wish you would
Laugh at the way I tie my shoes
Tickle me until I'm red in the face
Write me a song about my eyes
Say that you need me

I wish you would
Take my arms and kiss the scars
Look into my eyes and tell me I'm worth it
Treasure my heart and keep it safe
Wipe my tears and say everything will be all right

Don’t tell me you can’t take care of me
Don’t say that you don’t need me
Don’t wipe my tears and tell it’s going to be alright
Because it won’t be

Don’t tell me you’ve found someone new
Don’t say that it’s over
Don’t tell me there’s nothing I can do
Don’t put me through any more pain
Don’t call me and ask how I am
Don’t say that we should make plans

You didn’t have to touch my cheek and say you’ll never leave
You didn’t have to  mess up my hair and tackle me to the ground
You didn’t have to smile at me and call me crazy

I never asked you  to laugh at the way I tie my shoes
I never asked you to tickle me until I'm red in the face
I never asked you to write me a song about my eyes

All I wanted was for you to take my arms and kiss the scars
All I wanted was for you to look into my eyes and tell me I'm worth it
All I wanted was for you to treasure my heart and keep it safe

Was it so much to ask?
