about

This is a song I wrote about getting older, and learning to forgive people, and myself.

lyrics

Open your mind girl,
Let it all out,
I never knew,
You housed all this doubt,

Crawl little secrets,
Like spiders up the wall,
Knowing the secrets,
Are kept under the floor,

Smile for me darling,
Lift your tongue from your cheek,
Pack salt in those wounds,
Peel blisters from your feet,

I know that you feel like a child,
Though,
Full grown,
Lumbering around ‘neath,
Tiny tragedies,
But it wasn’t your fault, no it,
Wasn’t your fault,
Sometimes good people do bad things.

You wrote it all down,
Left it on my bed,
Couldn’t taste those words,
Rolling from your tongue,

I reach for the stillness,
Kept under my skin,
Knowing your patience is slowly wearing…

I know that you feel like a child,
Though,
Full grown,
Lumbering around ‘neath,
Tiny tragedies,
But it wasn’t your fault, no it,
Wasn’t your fault,
Sometimes good people do bad things.
