Heal Over.

It isn't very difficult to see why
You are the way you are

Rex sighed looking to his wife, she'd found out about his affair with the neighbourhood slut turned hooker.

Doesn't take a genius to realise
That sometimes life is hard

Bree was sat with her lips pursed as she was next to Rex in his room at the hospital.

It's gonna take time
But you'll just have to wait

She sighed a little, thinking about their past together, as Rex began to think of their future.

You're gonna be fine
But in the meantime

He reached out his hand for hers softly, wanting to know if they'd be alright, he wanted her to sit by him.

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away

Rex noticed Bree had tears in her eyes, threatening to spill. They did and he lifted his hand, caressing his thumb over them. To wipe them away.

Come a little nearer baby
Coz you'll heal over

Gently, Rex pulled her closer to him and he wrapped his arms around her body.

Heal over
Heal over someday

He wanted things to be fine. And they would be.

And I don't wanna hear you tell yourself
That these feelings are in the past

Rex gently kissed Bree's temple, holding her close to him.

You know it doesn't mean they're off the shelf
Because pain's built to last

He could feel her pain. He could feel both their pain.

Everybody sails alone
But we can travel side by side

Rex wanted them to get through this together, Bree wanted it too.

Even if you fail
You know that no one really minds

He wanted to let Bree know that no matter what happened, it was okay to make mistakes.

Don't hold on but don't let go
I know it's so hard

He wanted Bree to forget and forgive him for what he'd done, to make her see it was to save her the embarrassment of his fantasies.

You've got to try to trust yourself
I know it's so hard, so hard

He gave her body a gentle squeeze to him, trusting and understanding her pain.

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Coz you'll heal over, heal over, heal over someday.

He knew that soon, Bree would forgive him. She would heal over.

End.
