How many times do I have to knock
Some sense into you?
How long are you going to bear
A load too heavy for you?
'Cause every ship needs a harbor
And even heroes need saving
And you're no exception

I'm here to wipe away the tears
You won't let others see
I'm here to listen to your fears
Secret though they be
When you need to, please
Come share your pain
It's okay to let it out and let it go
And if nothing else
I just want to let you know
That I'm here to be your strength

I'll let you cast out demons
If you'll let me chase away
All these ghosts that haunt your eyes
I'll let you slay the dragon
If you'll let me fight your nightmares
And sing you back to sleep
I'll let you save the world
If you'll let me save you

I'm trying to break these walls down
I want to lead you out of this labyrinth
Please don't shut the world out
Let me in, just for a moment
I'm here for you and I've been here all along
You don't have to be so strong
Let me be the one to carry
The world for once

Go on and chase your dreams,
Fix your errors, fight your wars
I'll be here when you come back
Weary and battleworn
And like always, I'll repair the dents
Kiss the bruises, replace the broken parts
And maybe someday
Healing grace will finally reach your battered heart
And you'll know joy again

So when your demons whisper
I'll chase them all away
And they won't dare haunt your eyes
And when you wake up screaming
I'll help you fight your nightmares
And sing you back to sleep
I know you'll save the world
Just please let me save you.
DISCLAIMER: I did NOT draw that picture; I take no credit for it. I just found it on photobucket and thought it would look nice with the poem/song, so I used it.

This inspired by two things: 1) A few of my favorite anime couples, namely Ed x Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist and Hoshino x Tanabe from Planetes (AWESOME series). And 2) while my dad was in Iraq, he heard "My Immortal" for the first time and said he loved the idea behind it...but it was too sad/depressing because "the chorus was in past tense instead of present tense." So he asked me if maybe I could take the same concept and do my own thing with it. I guess this is it. XD

I wasn't really trying to write anything particularly deep or angsty or meaningful; the words just sorta popped out. So...yeah, sorry if it's not my best. Hope you enjoy this. :)

I have to admit, I honestly don't like this couple all that much, but this song is amazing, and it really works for Winry, even if they aren't in love. I thought this was a published song the first time I say it. Nice work.

Nah, not yet. I want to tweak the song a bit before I do that. The lyrics are a bit unwieldy and don't flow right yet. (I know, I know, my perfectionism is stupid...) =P

Oh. Yeah fine. This is code for "It'll probably never get it up there." Don't try to fight it, you know it's true! ;-P
