Just Rick Please

Our Humble Heros

From near and from far, you come to share
Your stories of hurt and pain
You say that you've come because you care
through the snow, the sleet and the rain

At first your words.....they bounce right off
I'm just trying not to hear
You're different from me you're weak, you're soft
you won't see ME drop a tear

Then suddenly, like a brick on my head
You touch nerves I've never felt
The wall that I've built, those lies that I've said
Slowly they all start to melt

"How can this be?", I hear myself say
We're from worlds and worlds apart
That story that you've brought to us today
...has just grabbed a hold of my heart

You've showed me a truth I've not wanted to see
now my tears have started to flow
The name's not the same, but the story's of me
I wonder just how did yo to know
