You sat atop a mountain
and vanquished a mighty dragon
you saved me from a monster
in my closet

you cared about me even 
when it felt like everyone was leaving
but then i left you sitting
in the dark

What have you seen?
what have you witnessed?
what have you hidden inside?
What have you heard?
what have you noticed?
what tore you up inside?

When i was crying in the night
you let me hold you oh so tight
even though i had left you there
when i was numb in the morning
you let me be the boring
person i always feared id be
and when i felt alone
felt id never find a home
you were there
you were there
and when i lost myself
thinking bout somebody else
you were there 
you were there

ooh
ooh
ooh

ooh 
ooh
ooh

You sat high upon a shelf
watched me barrocate myself
inside a cage of my own
design

you sat dusty on a corner
watched me grow up and get older
memories were all that you had left

what have you seen?
what have you witnessed?
what have you kept inside?
What have you heard?
what have you noticed?
what tore you up inside?

When i was crying in the night
you let me hold you oh so tight
even though i had left you there
when i was numb in the morning
you let me be the boring
person i always feared id be
and when i felt alone
felt id never find a home
you were there
you were there
and when i lost myself
thinking bout somebody else
you were there 
you were there

you kept the pictures that i made
memories that fade
from my mind
you kept the stories that i told
memories of an old
life you once have lived

when i felt alone
felt id never find a home
you were there
you were there
and when i lost myself
thinking bout somebody else
you were there 
you were there

When i was crying in the night
you let me hold you oh so tight
even though i had left you there
when i was numb in the morning
you let me be the boring
person i always feared id be
and when i felt alone
felt id never find a home
you were there
you were there
and when i lost myself
thinking bout somebody else
you were there 
you were there

    This is beautiful! The repetition works so well! It's so sad tho ;-; I also want to say that when I saw the title, I thought about a piano piece I play recently called: Were you there? and I just thought it was so ironic! Anyways, I'm glad I stumbled upon this piece <3

    I love your repetition of "you were there" because I can really hear someone singing it! To be honest, I didn't even realize you were talking about a stuffed animal until the ending- I really thought you were talking about a person, but a stuffed animal isn't any less powerful because it really represents all of childhood and the comforts young age holds! I really like this one verse because it's just so strong "When I was crying in the night/ you let me hold you oh so tight" Really great job!! :)
