Would You Be There For Me?

The mask of the smiling face
worn throughout the day
Just slips out from place
When silently on the bed I lay
The held-back tears roll down the cheek
The strong heart suddenly becomes weak

I want to take a break
and live life my own way
would you be there for me
To take me through the day?
I want to sit alone for a while at the sea-shore
Be happy from within like never before
Would you be there for me
to sit with me silently and let me be alone
Would you hold my hand
when I am scared and wish I was not alone

I have always depended on you friend
for every small thing from beginning till the end
You have always been there for me
When I was too scared to go on with my life
You were there to take me through
the darkest phase of my life
Today I call you again
Would you be there for me
and let me be just me?

I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.
