You can’t help
A desperate man
While he’s still making pleas
You can’t put an end to suffering
To someone on their knees

You can’t offer
Any reasons
To a presence that isn’t there
You can’t bring salvation to
A man consumed by cares

The wondering
Ain’t all that easy
When the reasons just aren’t there
There’s no compassion to understanding
Sometimes, there’s nothing fair

Time and distance
Always draws you
To a place without despair
After you lose your last connection
To a love that was never there
