Beseeching You

I want to tell you my story
every word of me
I want to show you my weakness and my glory
and not leave anything be

I want you to get to know me
I want you so close to me
I want your understanding
and all of your sympathy

I want you to see what I really am about
behind anything that I might believe
so that without a shadow of doubt
you’ll get closer to me than I might achieve

I want you to get to know me
I want you so close to me
I want your understanding
and all of your sympathy

I want to get under your skin
I want to be part of your mind
I want you to let me in
so you’ll know we’re of the same kind

I want you to get to know me
I want you so close to me
I want your understanding
and all of your sympathy

I want you to feel what I feel
I want to be parcel and part
of your way of regarding life so you will never steal
and forget and be breaking my heart

I want you to get to know me
I want you so close to me
I want your understanding
and all of your sympathy
