I wish to wipe my hands clean of what I knew
I've learnt what capabilities I have, and I've been traumatized
I don't care if the cycle is starting to repeat once more
I want to do things differently and finally save my own soul
Because the biggest capability I've found within myself
Is the power to wash away what I once known

It was my thing. It was our thing.
I'm not ready to share it with the world.
I want it to stay my thing. Our thing.

She's a little tired, a little cold
She feels a little empty in her soul
The room spins in his roundabout ways
He keeps her on edge most of the day
She's a little tired, a little sick of the ride
He thinks it's due to him not being able to hide
But that's not the case, let her make herself clear
She didn't want you there, she wanted you here
Her lips felt heavy with words unsaid
She felt like crying as she left him on read
It's when he is happy that she feels sad
And that in itself was what made her feel bad
It wasn't not being told or not being in the band
It was simply her desire to hold his hand

Last night, you asked me what I was afraid of
And under the stars and the influence of sin
I refused to confess
I was afraid of you

In a 5 am wonder
A nicotine dawn
A black coffee haze
And a slow song start
I think about you
Possibly thinking about me

i was asked a question one night:
"who would you choose? the one you want, or the one knocking at your door?"
i stick to my middle ground of is the one i want even knocking at my door?
i could hear nothing but the drum of a beat that my own heart has fallen into step to
it was so loud that it drove my neighbors away
and then a phone call from the contact named "i yearn for you"
the music stops, the beat stops, the world stops
"i'm here at your door"
i told him that i needed him to wait for me to open up my door
and he said that's fine, because there's nowhere else i'd rather be
your house is home to me
