lyrics

What's to become of us here
when we've locked ourselves away
behind invisible lines?
I heard you fell for New York
and that New York fell for you
that acceptance was not what you sought
but was it something to defend
or hide behind?

Someday I will rise
all the way up
to my knees
and agree
the best of you
has nothing at all to do with me.
In-between the tired candles of that night
and the ancient gold of morning
I will learn not to speak
and I will not dare
to speak out-loud
until I have nothing to say.

I'm guilty of taking what comes easy
you say you have regrets
I've heard them all
I shape-shift all my memories
into a history of my choosing
and now acceptance is not what I seek
I want something to defend
I want you to hide behind me
until we learn
that we are never ahead
and we are never behind
time.

Someday I will rise
all the way up
to my knees
and agree
the best of me
has nothing at all
to do with me
In-between the tired candles of that night
and the ancient gold of morning
I will learn to not speak
and I will not dare
to speak out-loud
until I have nothing to save.
