Please Give Me A Moment

By Bruce Clifford

Please give me a moment
Maybe give me three
Iíve tried, Iíve tried, Iíve tried
To be who you want me to be


Please give me a second
While I gather my thoughts
Iíve cried, Iíve cried, Iíve cried
Now I feel so lost


I remember being abandoned
The darkness of the sea
Left out in the middle of the ocean
Alone in this tragedy


I remember being awoken
In the deepness of space
Left with the silent leftovers
Alone in a quiet place


Please give me a moment
Maybe give me two
Iíve tried, Iíve tried, Iíve tried
Now I donít know what to do


Please give me a second
While I wash off my face
Iíve cried, Iíve cried, Iíve cried
Now Iím so out of place
