How often did I leave you out in the cold
and wanted to lose you, let go of that hold?
How often did I let you burn
leaving you with nowhere to turn?
How often did I send you away into another one´s arm
knowing full well they would only do harm?
How often did I let you drown
but in the end I too was pulled down?
How often did I leave you alone in the dark with no eyes to see
alone with your self and your way to be?
How often did I look away, did not want to see your pain
but the tears also streamed down my face, leaving a stain?
How often did I hold my ears shut, did not want to hear
knowing you were calling but I was not ready feel your fear?
How often did I let you fall, did not hold out my hand
because what connected us was what I did not understand?
How often did I send you away with a lie
even though I knew we both would die?
How often was I not there when you needed me
or tried to fight you off like an enemy?
How often was I blind to your fears
and couldn´t see a way out for all the tears?
How often did I hurt you and me
and hoped that others would finally see?
But now I hold out both of my hands with an open heart
and I ask you to forgive me and hope for a new start!
I have always felt it, your fear and your pain,
your believe in my was not in vain.
It took a long time before I saw
that I am your anchor, your ship, your door
and I am your safety net, your harbour, your island
It is not too late, please take my hand.
We have all the time in the world someone once said
I love you even though I cannot say it out loud just yet
Together we are opening that new door
Please trust me just this once more
We will both leave this valley, dark and cold
Together we will climb our mountain, strong and bold.
