  • Hey your glass is empty
    It's a hell of a long way home
    Why don't you let me take you
    It's no good to go alone
    I never would have opened up
    But you seemed so real to me
    And after all the bullshit I've heard
    It's refreshing not to see
    That I don't have to pretend
    She doesn't expect it from me

    Don't tell me I haven't been good to you
    Don't tell me I have never been there for you
    Don't tell tell me why nothing is good enough

    Hey, little girl, would you like some candy?
    Your momma said it's okay
    The door is open, come on outside
    No, I can't come out today
    It's not the wind that cracked your shoulder
    And threw you to the ground
    Who's there that makes you so afraid
    You're shaken to the bone
    And I don't understand
    You deserve so much more than this

    So don't tell me why
    He's never been good to you
    Don't tell me why
    He's never been there for you
    Don't you know that why
    Is simply not good enough
    So just let me try
    And I will be good to you
    Just let me try
    And I will be there for you
    I'll show you why
    You're so much more than good enough

    So don't tell me why
    He's never been good to you
    Don't tell me why
    He's never been there for you
    Don't you know that why
    Is simply not good enough
    Oh, so just let me try
    And I will be good to you
    Just let me try
    And I will be there for you
    I'll show you why
    You're so much more than good enough Writer/s: Sarah Mclachlan
