Can’t Rely On Another


You say that you want to protect me
And keep me safe from the wolves at my door
You say that you want to take care of me
That I shouldn’t worry anymore

Forgive me if I don’t believe you
Though I know your intentions are good
But I’ve learned not to rely on another
To do all the things that they should

I’ve cared for myself for a long time
And that’s the way it’ll continue to be
Because I know it’s too hard to start over
When someone you lean on sets you free

You can still be a part of my life now
Your love, I’ll gladly accept
Just don’t demand I hand over the reins
To ask you for help, don’t expect

Maybe in time we’ll be partners
And with you, I’ll learn to share
The weight of the world on my shoulders
But til then, just show me you care
