Around

*Note: these words are the lyrics of an unfinished song. I will need to record the accompanying music. The song describes of wanting to be there for someone because I see that the other person is going through a hard time. The person I directed this song did not exist initially, but I have situations in my life where I hear this song resonate, ignoring the pretense of a relationship.  I imagine the end chorus of the song being sung as a three part Round. Here is “Around.” 

Around

I look both ways

Before I cross a one-way street

Counting down the days

Until again we will meet

I hit the ground, ready to run

Stay awake until we see the sun

Breathe in and out

Before you tell me your story

Without a doubt

You could never bore me

All ears are ready to listen

I love that you’re different

If I was Superman, you’d be my Lois Lane,

If I was Spiderman, you’d be my Mary Jane,

We could be flying high, way up in the sky,

You and I

When you’re lying, in your fears

When you’re trying, but no one hears

When you’re crying, I’ll dry your tears

When you’re dying, I will be near.

When you are falling down,

I’ll be around

I trust in God

Who healed my uncertainty?

I will applaud

When you bring your insecurities

Never be afraid when the night comes

Stay awake until you see the Son

If I was Superman, you’d be my Lois Lane,

If I was Spiderman, you’d be my Mary Jane,

But I am just one man, about to lose his brain,

Am I going insane?

When you’re lying, in your fears

When you’re trying, but no one hears

When you’re crying, I’ll dry your tears

When you’re dying, I will be near.

When you are falling down,

I’ll be around

If you stand up, right after you fall

All your problems, won’t seem that tall

When people try to make you feel small

We can talk about nothing at all.

When you hit the ground,

I’ll be around

When you’re lying, in your fears

When you’re trying, but no one hears

When you’re crying, I’ll dry your tears

When you’re dying, I will be near.

When you are falling down,

I’ll be around

When you are falling down,

I’ll be around

When you are falling down,

I’ll be around

When you hit the ground,

I’ll be around
