Dear Alicia

K. Obermeyer

Dear Alicia, your world is moving too fast
Sewn together with things that you can’t grasp
Your living a lie and hiding from your past
As dark as your eyes, you cannot change it back

I won’t run out on you
Like you say the others do
Others do

Dear Alicia, hold your sorrows at bay
Some of the tears you cannot wash away
You live for tomorrow without a care for today
Gather those sorrows and throw them all away

I will tell you the truth
A world like ours will tear you apart
Tear you apart
Tear you apart
Tear you apart

I wasn’t running out or holding out on you
I wasn’t listening as hard as I should
And if I tell you the troubles I’ve been through
Such a burdened heart would only misconstrue
