Don't Count on Me

Please don't laugh, please don't cry.
I like your neutral expression.
Please don't move, please don't change.
I appreciate your position.
Please don't say that you need me
When I know I won't always be there
Please, remain your own person
If I failed you, that wouldn't be fair

Now every time I look at you
I see a longing in your eyes
Yearning for a strength to lean on
A strength that I can't find

Don't count on me
I won't be there
To make it right
When life's unfair
Don't count on me
Don't give me your faith
I know soon I'll be gone
I'll be just a memory before too long

I'm not that strong

Sometimes I know you find me to be cold
When I need time alone
To drown into my soul
Sometimes you mistake the words I seldom speak
But still I don't want your trust or faith in me
Don't mistake my words, I love you
But I'm too weak to hold on to you

Someday I'll look at you
With a burn to walk on water
But now I look at you
And as flames lick me, I wonder

Don't count on me
I won't be there
To make it right
When life's unfair
Don't count on me
Don't give me your faith
I know soon I'll be gone
I'll be just a memory before too long

Someday my conscience will be freed from the claustraphobia
Of my soul in the shell of my body
Then I'll give you a shard
And you'll give me it back
Realizing my faults
In the spirit that I lack

Don't count on me
I won't be there
To make it right
When life's unfair
Don't count on me
Don't give me your faith
I know soon I'll be gone
I'll be just a memory before too long

Before too long...
