How Can I?

You call me at twelve o'clock

And I’m always here to listen

I’m always there to give you comfort

But now, I’m about to go missin

Will you still know I care for you

When I can’t call you back?

Will you cry even more when I don’t?

Will you think that I lack?

How can I sleep knowing you need me?

How can I dream knowing you’re crying?

How can I give you a metaphorical hug

When I’m not allowed to be trying?
