Tears on the hillside, please don’t take me this way

I want to stay and become somebody, I want to prove you all wrong

And I can see the city at night from my bedroom window

Gashes from lashing on my legs

But I don’t want your tears

I just want you to know

That if meteors came falling from the sky, I’d still be there to love you

When the music stopped I’d be there to sing

I want you to listen to me

I just want you know, that I’m bigger then this


I hurt your child and you look down at me

But I feel like I’ve been away while you got to sit and stay

Don’t look at me, please don’t look at me that way

I’m scared of the pain and the long hard days

These black eyes and the nights when I didn’t know if I’d stay alive

My mother sleep, apologies on his bloodied fists

I don’t want your tears and I don’t need your love

I just want you to know

That when night dawned on my side I needed someone to care

I needed something to be there

Don’t you dare look at me that way

Don’t talk about me that way, don’t you dare

Because I’ve gone through the fucking shit, while you got to float away

I needed a home, while you needed your day


And I’ve fought for my life every single night

I did everything to keep breathing, I had to keep my eyes open to keep seeing

And I know that I’ve been gone while you got to sit and stay

I’ve been wrong, and that’s all you say

I need someone to love me, and need to make sense of these nightmares

This is a righteous plea, because fear has a hold on me

I’ve apologized a million times through so many rhymes, but you’ve read but one

Please don’t take me this way, I can’t take seeing the past

I don’t have time for arguments and back talk, I want something to happen

And I’ll say it one more time, I don’t need your love, I don’t need your hugs

I just want you to know
I’ve been through the night times, I’ve been through the halls

I was being hurt, but you didn’t hear my call

So don’t you dare look at me that way, don’t you dare have a word to say

This is my time, this is for me

Some nights when I’d rather flee, then have nightmares I can’t make sense of

Some nights I’d do anything to relive what I had to see




I really can’t deny how beautiful you are, but do you see it

Do you believe that someone like me could be with someone like you

Do you believe that I could make your sky blue, or I could hold you tight

I could fight for you, make your days right

Glide across the world like a shooting star, hold you so close and whisper a poem into your ear

Do you believe me that I’m sincere, and that you would be the dearest thing in my life

Do you believe it?

I’m a man of simple pleasures, but you’re amazing

If you came toward me I’d have to wonder if I could take it

Do you believe this poem, because I doubt I could fake it

Do you believe that these words are real?
Do you believe that I could be your place to hide before the storm begins?

That you could dance and mesmerize me, almost like every time I looked into your eyes

Would you understand if I told you I’d like to be with you, or would you not feel the same way

If I made a promise, with a tear in my eye, all the hope In my heart and belief in my mind

If you held me and I held you I think we’d be alright


I’ll bang on your door until you let me in because sometimes I might need a place to hide

I know in my mind that I might be the best thing for you, but I know you’d be the best for me

You are the most beautiful girl that I’ve ever seen, and if I ever kissed you it would be a dream come true

And do you believe me if the skies were dark I’d do everything to turn them blue

Do you believe that if I’d wipe away every tear, and prepare you for every fear

Would it surprise you if I said that I’ve been waiting for you for so many years

That every message I sent was in preparation for you
So Take my hand tonight because I know we’d be alright girl

Nicole, what a name for such a perfect woman

Nicole, if I made a promise with a tear in my eye and hope in my heart would you believe me?
If judgment day came around at least I’d know that I’d die happy, and when I found a place to hide at least I’d be with you
