Too Soft


Can you teach me now how to be unkind?
Teach me to push love to the recesses of my mind?
These lessons in human nature....
I've missed you see
Too soft is the way I've become to be

Teach me to be bitter with unwavering will
Teach me to steel my gaze and make a heartbeat still
Maybe these things I could learn from you?
It would seem class is in session....
In everything that you do

Teach me again how to make these tears hide
Teach me how to bottle everything up inside
I know now too soft is not the way to be
For it's a quality in you....
I will never see
