Never again will I rush in
And take my walls down,
But you asked me:
Why would I hide when I wanted
To show you my scars,
Cos in hindsight,
I needed some space, but I could not
Keep myself away
From your tender,
Drawing me back into the light.
I see flashes of colour in the midnight sky,
Feel a rush that flies up to the moon.
I hear music cry out from the dark and void,
And it dances to your heartbeat.
When I tugged you along, with my spirit’s song,
In the face of a narrowing way.
You looked back at my shadow and pulled me in close,
As my fears melted away (in love).
It’s time to move on.
You convinced me,
I had to be strong.
In a sea of withering weeds,
How did I find a flower like you?
In the storms, you
Never abandoned me;
Close by my side.
When I needed a home to go back to,
Sometimes, we look just a little too far,
When our hearts know where to fly to.
Sometimes, we don’t know just how to be still
And find peace abandoning heartbreak.
Hold me and lead me to clearer skies,
Where the air is light and free.
Show me a place far away from here,
Where the chains of my pain are a dream.
Maybe one day, when I open my eyes
And these stains have melted away,
Then I’ll open my heart and believe again
In a hope that sets me free in love.
