Sweetheart, you look a little tired
When did you last eat?
Come in and make yourself right at home
Stay as long as you need
Tell me: is something wrong?
If something's wrong, you can count on me
You know I'll take my heart clean apart if it helps yours beat

It's okay if you can't find the words
Let me take your coat
And this weight off of your shoulders

Like a force to be reckoned with
A mighty ocean or a gentle kiss
I will love you with every single thing I have
Like a tidal wave, I'll make a mess
Or calm waters, if that serves you best
I will love you without any strings attached

It's okay if you can't catch your breath
You can take the oxygen straight out of my own chest

I know exactly how the rule goes:
Put my mask on first
No, I don't want to talk about myself
Tell me where it hurts
I just want to build you up, build you up
'Til you're good as new
And maybe one day I will get around to fixing myself too

I don't even know where to start
Already tired of trying to recall when it all fell apart
I just want to love you, to love you, to love you well
I just want to learn how, somehow, to be loved myself

Like a force to be reckoned with
A mighty ocean or a gentle kiss
I will love you without any strings attached
And what a privilege it is to love
A great honor to hold you up

Like a force to be reckoned with
A mighty ocean or a gentle kiss
I will love you with every single thing I have
Like a tidal wave, I'll make a mess
Or calm waters if that serves you best
I will love you without any strings attached
I will love you without a single string attached

Author Notes: So, I didn't write this. I DID NOT WRITE THIS. But I feel like the raw meaning of it is something people need to hear. I hope it's okay to post something I didn't come up with.
The song is called "Two" by Sleeping At Last, and there are eight similar songs, each meant to resonate with different personalities. I personally love "Five" the most, and I'd recommend listening to all of them.
The reason I love this one is because I know several people who neglect themselves to help others and sometimes it hurts them, and then, because they're hurting, they stop being able to help others, and it seems like that's when they themselves hurt the most. Some people say "that's not healthy", and they might be right, or wrong, but either way, it's undeniable that these people, who want nothing more than to help others, are so important. I don't mean that in an exploitative way, I don't mean they're useful. I'm saying we need more people who care about the people around them. The world desperately needs something--anything--to soften the constant hurting every person feels, and there's nothing more comforting than knowing there's someone out there who loves you.
Some people don't have a person like that yet, or they don't realize that they do, or they haven't met them yet, but we can't let us trick ourselves into thinking the feeling of being alone is going to last forever because it won't. It doesn't.
