I've been told I was no burden
I wanted it to be true
But many times now in my life
A burden I've been even to me too


They mean well I think when they say
You are not bothering me at all
Then their actions scream louder
You just have to take care of it all


Sometimes I get so tired
Of taking care of things alone
I want to stop, just give up
Just rest until it's all gone


Then I see once more I have to be
That damn adult I've been since age four
It gets so tiring for me
But I have to go on again, once more


So here I go one more time again
Having to be the grown up I hate so much
Oh to be a child, just once in my life
Just to feel a loving touch....
