All the ways you hurt yourself
Physically and Emotionally
They leave these blemishes
Brilliant, impossible not to see
To people who just look

You don't need to do this
To punish yourself
Unable to forgive yourself
I want you to be forgiven

Together under new stars
With unfading dreams
Running towards a future
Nothing to hide or escape from

You are cold, exposed to the world
But you don't need to be alone
I will keep you warm, sheltering each other
Together we can nourish each other and grow
