lyrics

I fell too many times,
Words of love pressed against my brain
Trying to escape and I’m scared beyond my wits,
I didn’t know how to handle this,

They said “she’s beautiful, a goddess among men,”
And I guess they knew, but I just didn’t understand,
That a pretty face was the excuse to use and abuse,
That a pretty face meant naivety,
That you could ignore the rules.
So I woke up with bruises on my heart and in my soul,
And I promised to myself that I wouldn’t ever let this go.

I tied myself to a rock,
To keep me from falling
so far and so fast,
I clutched with bloody fingertips even as the waves passed,
I couldn’t let myself open up,
I couldn’t let myself believe,
And now that I’m seeing you,
I wish that I could just be me.

A man tied me to a stone and told me “you’ll be safe here.”
And now I don’t know where to go I know that I’m still “safe here,”
But I can see the light up on the shore
40 ft of water I can never cross, Lord, I know,
I ties the ropes too tight and now my heart can’t see the light.

I tied myself to a rock,
To keep me from falling so far and so fast,
I clutched with bloody fingertips even as the waves passed,
I couldn’t let myself open up,
I couldn’t let myself believe,
And now that I’m seeing you,
I wish that I could just be me.

And then I see a sight, beyond imagination,
A flying creature blocks the light,
But I watched a man fly from the stars and take up with his metal sword,
Hear the clanging and see the sparks
As he cuts at the chains that held me up for so long.
