How Many Times?

How Many times did you cry today?

Let me hold you close until the hurt fades away

On and on I’ll embrace you within my arms

Shelter you from the storm

He’ll never understand the pain that he’s formed

 

How many times did you have to dry your eyes?

Pick up the shattered pieces of your heart from his bladed lies

On and on I’ll embrace you within my arms

Shelter you from harm

I know you don’t want to be lonely

Rest your head on my chest and listen to my hearts melody

 

How many times? How many times?

How many times are you gonna keep playing these games

Never did I mean to be a one-night stand

But how many times will you let him put you to shame?

I know I’m not your man, just a friend,

But….

 

How many times is he going to take you through the emotions?

How many times do we gotta go through the motions?

Stuck in the erosion with these petty notions

I don’t mind being your knight in blackened armor

Just how many times must I hear the loud cries of your painful murmurs?

How many winters, how many summers?

On and on I’ll embrace you within my arms

Weather you from the harms of the storms

Rest and fall asleep to the rhythm and beat

Of my heart’s melody

Even if you have nightmares,

I’ll light the flair protecting you from whatever has you scared

 

How many times?

How many times?

Just how many times did you cry today?
