Can you hold me like a bird that?s
crashed into your window,
leaving feathers on the pane before
falling senseless to the ground?

And if my nest overflows and
I take a tumble,
will you keep me from the road when
traffic?s everywhere around?

If I need you in the night
will you light a candle?
Will you keep a vigil burning long until
my feet can touch the ground?

Let me know
What you see
When you look into the mirror
On my wall
Beside the sketch of me
Because I don?t know if you
Just want a trampoline
One to catch you when you fall
And send you higher still
A playmate and safety
Someone to wait out on the lawn
And weather every storm
To touch you when you need
To feel free

And if I fall out of sight
will you come searching?
Will you tend the lighthouse fire until
I find your harbor sound?

When the race is done
and I still can?t stop running,
will you sing a lullaby when I
can?t settle myself down?

Will you look me in the eyes
when I start crying?
Because I cannot let go of what
you will not stare down.

And if I need a moment will you
silent clock ticks?
Will you read into the sunset and
anticipate my needs?

If you?re not sure
Let?s wait and see
But if you know
This isn?t you
Then I should
Probably soon leave
Because I know
I will be your trampoline
I will catch you when you fall
And send you higher still
Be your playmate and safety
I will wait out on the lawn
And I will weather every storm
I will set you free
But I will break
If you only touch me when you need
