Tonight

I'm too old to make wishes
If I could I would make a wish
for you to sit with me tonight

You don't have to care for me
You're not the foundation of my world
I won't lay my strains on you
If the alternative is isolation
Please sit with me tonight

You don't have to fear
That you might be pressured
This is not about sex
If you have no one you hold onto
Please sit with me tonight

You aren't my entertainment
I may talk
I do that
Follow the sound of my voice
It will lead to this place
Please sit with me tonight

I'm too young to give up on dreams
We can't always be happy
Or well fed
I dream we need never be lonely
You are welcome
To sit with me tonight
