We Got Us

Sometimes I can’t go on.
Why bother pretending?
I’m not who I think I am.

I break and I bend
Twist and I turn and
Even then
I’m here come morning.

You’re strong.
If you wanna cry
Go on.
You’re more
Than you wanna know
It’s fine.
But don’t
Just don’t
Tell me
You’re alone.

If you’re hurt, turn around
We can’t go back the way we came
But I’m here.
So lay it down

Break and bend and
Twist and turn and
Let the wind
Lift you from the ground.

We are who we wanna be.
I’m ready.
Are you with me?
2 to 1. What odds?
We got us on our side.

You’re strong.
If you wanna cry
Go on.
You’re more
Than you wanna know
It’s fine.
But don’t
Just don’t

No don’t
I won’t
Let you be alone.

I’m ready.
Are you with me?

We got us on our side.

Always Stone

Don’t look at me.
It’s written all over my face.
Point to point. Connect the dots.
Don’t look at me.
Just do as you’re told.

I’ve got a lot to be ashamed of
Biology
Shouldn’t be one.
I know better.

How did
You think this would go though?
Have you seen me
As of late?

Don’t look at me.
It’s written all over my face.
Point to point. Connect the dots.
Don’t look at me.
Just do what I say.

We weren’t always stone.
There was a time, we lit the stars.
When you forget. When you slip, again.
Remember.

Don’t look at me.
It’s written all over my face.
Point to point. Connect the dots.
Don’t look at me.
Just do as you’re told.

Do what I say.
Don’t look at me.
Remember. Remind me.
We are more than this.

We weren’t always stone.
