Hold me close and don't let go; I'm so scared to be alone. I've been by myself for too long, And always had to be strong. Now I only want to rest; And lay my head on your chest. Hold me close and don't let go; These wars I fight no one knows. Now whisper how you love me, Say it tender and softly. I am weary and soon will sleep, But with you no longer will I weep. So hold me close and don't let go, For I never want to be alone.
