Jan 2020
You promised me the world
And left me to explore it on your own
Said I can show you things
But can't see them for you

You're right
That's true
I just thought that you might
Want me next to you

I can't be Alaska
But you don't know that if you'd asked it
I would've tried with all of my might
To shine as bright as the Northern Lights for you

I know that we had high hopes
But somewhere I timeline became a tightrope
Now I don't know which way to go
I can't build our home all on my own
