There Are Days

There are days When I want to lean on you And tell you I'm tired. And I can't sleep at night, the dreams keep me wired. And things haven't been going on well in a while, And I'm so glad you're here, and I've missed your smile— But I can't. I've taken one too many chances. But I won't. You say you love me, but you don't. So: there are days When I smile, and say: I’m just fine.
