You Helped Me

You poured hot water on me

And watched my make-up bleed away

Took all I had left to give

And turned it into something great

When the tears came thick on my lashes

You held me and cried with me

I always thought the world was cruel

But you showed me how things could be

All this work I spent

On something that I’m not

You took it all away

And showed me what I’ve really got

Stupid people in the world

And all the games they pay

You mended all the wounds

Helped me heal from all the pain
