I see you standing bravely and I see you standing true
And I wonder how you stand at all with all that you've been through
And I want to soothe your hurting and I want to hold your hand
But I never want to be someone who truly understands

And if I can I'll...
...let someone else walk with you.
And if I can I'll...
...move on ahead and leave you.

And I see you huddled by yourself, black against the sky
And I want there to be somebody who holds you when you cry
And I wish you hadn't lost so much for what you hope to gain
But I plan to be just one more girl who doesn't know your pain

And if I can I'll...
...let someone else walk with you.
And if I can I'll...
...move on ahead and leave you.

And what I really want to do...
...is tell you sorry then just pass you by.

I thought of dedicating this song to a few people in particular, but I kept thinking of more and more candidates, and I didn't know how to choose. Let's just say if you think this is for you, it is.

Love this song... makes me think of my best friend, who's going through a really tough divorce.
