I watch you on your own Island

I watch you on your own Island

You seem happy that way : )
Sometimes when your not looking
I cry my act away

King of your own island people do as you say!
I hate making you sail of your own Island
Tearing you away

The land I make you travel to is a million miles away
I don?t know how to make it better or make it go away

I try to make you understand me, them, you us...
The other Island we all live in, you just can?t act that way!
Watching you pretend to fit in, do as they say
Makes me cry from the inside but push you the same way

I hate that I make you say yes when you only feel no
It doesn?t feel right that way, im sorry to say

I watch you struggle in your mind and know there is nothing I can do
I just wanted to say I love you and your beautiful Island too
Sometimes it may seem hard
But a Mums got to do what a mums got to do!

You can keep your Island and use it just for short stays
You can escape to it's paradise but be home soon though Jay
I have to help you open your wings get ready to fly
But son I have to tell you, "we all need to try and fly in the same skies
Hopefully one day soon you may just realise
Untill then I will hold you and tell you it's going to be fine but return to my room with your tears in my eyes
