I'm not like you. You're not like me.
But if you listen and give me a chance, I know you'll see.
I have lots of love, but only you can set it free
I can't always understand you, will you understand me.
Understand me. Hear what I want to say.
Without love and compassion or caring, my skies turn grey.
Don't let me meltdown and cause you to walk away.
Please understand that I'm autistic, but it's o.k.
I'm often too scared to let the world in.
So I hide inside my head, and the trouble begins.
If you show your love, I'll feel safe again.
I'll open up, we'll both be friends, and the world will win.
Autism makes it too bright, too scary and loud.
I can't figure out what to do.
If you show your compassion I'll make you so proud
I know you can help me through.
