If I Only Had A Mentor

Ratz, 11/11/03 ©

[Verse 1]
Through the darkness of confusion,
Of my all consuming fear.
Another gloomy Monday morning.
I'm fighting hard to stop the tears.

Never sure how I should handle,
Situations that arise.
Always watching those around me,
  With guarded gaze.  With cold blue eyes.

[Verse 2]
Hoping to discern some signal,
For the proper way to act,
In each given situation,
With the wall pressed to my back.

Won't somebody give me guidance.
Can't you please show me the way.
Help me keep from second guessing,
  Show me how to live today.

[Chorus]
Won't you be my mentor?
Can't you take me by the hand?
Won't you show me an example?
Will you help me understand?

Sometimes life is so confusing,
That I don't know what to do.
If you've walked this road before me,
  Can't you share what you've been through.


[Verse 3]
I've survived on basic instinct.
I have made it safe this far.
Only hurting others slightly.
Trying hard to hide the scars.

That I've suffered on the inside.
My defenses are in place.
You can never see the real me,
  When I wear my public face.

[Chorus]
Won't you be my mentor?
Can't you take me by the hand?
Won't you show me an example?
Will you help me understand?

Sometimes life is so confusing,
That I don't know what to do.
If you've walked this road before me,
  Can't you share what you've been through.


[Verse 4 (second voice)]
I can see you hiding,
From the world.  It's in your eyes.
I have lived that way for many years,
I can see through your disguise.

Don't be scared.  I won't expose you.
I'm not here to put you down.
Take my hand and I will share with you,
Some things that I have found.

[Chorus]
Let me be your mentor.
Let me take you by the hand.
Let me show you an example.
Let me help you understand.

I know life can be confusing.
At times I didn't know what to do.
But I've walked this road before you,
  Let me share what I've been through.


[Verse 5]
You can ask me any questions,
I won't preach.  I'll simply share.
All the thoughts and feelings that I had.
How I felt when no one cared.

I will do my best to give you,
Time and space to help you learn.
I'm an open book for you to read,
Your trust, I know I'll have to earn.

[Chorus]
Just let me be your mentor.
Let me take you by the hand.
Let me show you an example.
Let me help you understand.

I can validate your feelings,
I've walked miles in your shoes.
I have made it through the tough times.
Let me help you make it too.



[Music fading - whispered voices fading out]
Don't be scared,
I'm right here with you.
I know it hurts.
Come here...
It's 'ok' to cry.
Let it out.
I'm right here with you.
