Hold me

Let me rest just a little while, I'm feeling infinite tired,
Place your hands on my eyes and hold me tight.
Let me rest just a little while, in your arms I may cry,
Cover me, I need a place to hide.
      I've been running so far now I lost my aim,
      I've been searching so long but just found pain.
Let me rest just a little while, there's such a coldness inside
Hold my head like a mother would hold the head of her child.
Let me rest just a little while, there's such a darkness inside,
Dry these falling tears that I cry.
      I've been fighting so long 'till I forgot what for,
      I've been crying out loud 'till I got hoarse.
            Hold me just for a while
            'Till the sleep will drive away these shadows outside,
            Hold me just for a while,
            'Till these broken wings are healed up for another flight,
            'Till I'm able to set out one more time.
Let me rest just a little while, I'm feeling a fear inside,
Stroke my soul and let me close these grieving eyes,
Let me rest just a little while, I'm hurt and I'm feeling tired
Lick these painful wounds and hold me tight,
      I've been running so long but I ran in circles it seems,
      I've been searching so long and I lost my dreams.
            Hold me just for a while
            'Till the sleep will drive away these shadows outside,
            Hold me just for a while,
            'Till these broken wings are healed up for another flight,
            'Till I'm able to set out one more time.
