lyrics

you rested your nervous head,
in the fold of my neck,
said you feared the failure,
that followed you,
from every place you've been,
to every place you'll go,
you cut your ties to let them know,
that this is far enough,
that this is far enough,
but every bridge you burn,
can be rebuilt again.

still I have noticed,
that far away look,
that has settled into your eyes,
it is pouring out of you by the hour now,
like a river swollen by a season of hard rain,
there is nowhere else for it to go,
so it continually swallows itself,
and swells again,
and swallows.

what's done is done, is done, is done.

you cannot shoulder the weight,
of the choices you've made,
so you bury your face,
in the depths of your shame.
