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

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

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
