I stand there on the sidelines

Wishing I could save you

From all he pain you’re feeling

And all the hurt you’ve known


But I’m afraid my words are useless

‘Cause I just don’t understand

I’ve never been to the world you live in

I’ve watched it from afar

I’ve never hurt the way you’re hurting


No, I don’t know what it feels like

And I don’t know what to say


If I laugh, don’t be offended

I don’t think it’s funny

I just laugh when I’m anxious

And have no words


I cry sometimes when I think

Of all that’s happened to you

I know it must hurt

Worse than anything I’ve known

I wish I could save you
