Buying Time

They like to say that you're only buying time

Let me buy the time

Let me be the one who tells you every single thing will work out fine


They like to say folks will never let you be

Let that not be me

Let me have the strength to free you when too soon it's time you be set free


And let me have the confidence to seem mature

God help me find the words to make you feel secure

Let me still be here when you face that sinking fear

To dry your tears and lend my ear

And calmly face the storms that you endure

A sheltered harbour for you evermore


They like to say that you're better on your own

Let me keep your home

Let me be the shelter that you need when you can't keep it up alone


They say you can't count on anyone for long

Let me prove them wrong

Let me be the stone foundation always there to lay your burdens on


Let me have the confidence to seem mature

God help me find the words to make you feel secure

Let me still be here when you face that sinking fear

To dry your tears and lend my ear

And calmly face the storms that you endure

A sheltered harbour for you evermore
