I Can - Gabrielle Washington

 
I can
Gabrielle Washington
I can break you down if you let me
I can mend your broken heart
Take my hand; we’ll walk through the day
Happiness is always on its way
I can sense you breathing in my lungs
I can feel your heart beat on mine
I can feel when your happy or when your blue
But I can also make all your dreams come true
Understanding, peace of mind
The hardest qualities to define
Look at me, what do you see
I won’t let labels define you or me
I can feel your pulse moving fast
I can feel your pain throbbing away
Lost in a world, so inhumane
No understanding for the human race
But don’t give up; hope is on its way
I can bet on a better day
I sense you breathing in my lungs
I feel when you’re happy
I can make all your dreams come true
I can break you down if you let me
I can mend your broken heart
Take my hand; we’ll walk through the day
Happiness is always on its way
