I want to save you

I want to save you
I want to pull you from their grasp
Theres so few of them, but cant you see
Theres so many

I want to lead you away
I want to take you far away from their grasp
So you can breathe
So you can sleep

But my hands are in locks
My feet are in chains
And to break them, I’d only break my heart
So I turn away and watch you behind those prison walls
Without even the taste of you lips to remember you by
Why do I think that?
It’s better this way I tell myself
This tear will fall from my brown eyes
It hits the floor like a brick
It hits this cold concrete floor of your prison
