Falling away wasn’t planned
Wind and water mixed with lack of time
Distance howling among tall trees of uncertainty
When will we be reunited responses empty
I had to look away
Dispose hopes and fears hide what I really wanted to say
Detach disassemble deny distract dump and lay it in casket
Shouldn’t have put my heart in her basket
Watching candles die without fuel and that’s where we are.
Said I could be myself with you but I can’t
You can’t see
How the things you’re holding back burn my chest
You claim they don’t exist in your life
But I know what your loved ones don’t know
Claim it’s to make your life easier well it’s working
Guess I’ll keep paying until I’m numb
Guess I’ll stay silent until bitterness comes or I leave
Don’t act betrayed don’t be dismayed when I’m cold
You can’t see it.
I’ll keep you secrets locked away
Get angry and say it’s not about what it’s about
Tell me I should just be quiet with a sealed mouth
Well I am.
