From Me To You

LastRd.gif I'm leaving by night
I'm leaving alone
I'm leaving it lie
When you waken I'll be gone

I would not beg for me
As I would not beg for you

Though I'd like to be
the one to see you through

Every step you have taken
Disappears with the tide
You're torn up and shaken
With changing your mind
You haven't got the grace
To say you'll finally decide
And you haven't got
The strength to stay to fight

They say you are foolish
In wanting the sun
Say you are selfish
In learning to run
Tell you that the darkness
Is a blessing in disguise
For you never have to notice
If you're sighted or you're blind
And they'll do their best
To keep you from the light

Those people who surround you only
Want to see you weak enough to crawl.

They'll lie for you, decide for you
And buy up all your rights and all your wrongs.

You're more than beginning
You're learning to fly
You feel like you're falling
But it passes in time
I hate to see a friend go down
In flames without a song
So I'm waiting by the doorway
But I will not linger long

Kit Hain sings Janis Ian's From Me To You on Thorne's Sprawl CD

I'm leaving by night
I'm leaving alone
I'm leaving it lie
When you waken I'll be gone
I would not beg for me
As I could not beg for you

Though I'd like
to be the one
to see you through
