Always There, In Control

You’ve burrowed deep within
Just come out
We all know you want to be free
Stop trying to hide
You’re not fooling me
Yes, come here
Give me a hug
No, a real one
Like you really mean it
Stop being bashful
Only one of us can be shy here
I’ll be weak
And you be strong
Strong enough for the both of us
Maybe, you and I together
Can take this on
Even from hiding
You’ve managed to get me this far
Commandeering my life
Letting me believe I was in control
But it’s always been you
We’ve fooled them all
But you’ll never fool me
I know you’re there
My little friend
So come out to play
Maybe, this time, stay
