Every morning when I wake up
I’m not sure which me I’m going to get
A pool of hope or a wave of sadness
It’s sink or swim from the start to the end
My hands are swollen, my heart is racing
My ears are ringing with the notes I spent
It’s just sixteen syllables that were barely audible
A group of words that I always regret

No matter how much they meant

Sometimes the best way to say that you’re sorry
Is to keep your apologies to yourself.

Every evening when we curl up
I know for certain that this is all I need
Under the covers, a simple silence
A quiet promise between you and me
I’ve picked my poisons, I’ve picked my pleasures
I’ve picked my battles, and I’ve picked my friends
It’s just fifteen memories that will burn inside of me
I keep those fires lit with the tip of my pen

Until the ink runs red

It’s just another day spent in silence
Spinning on top of the loneliest planet inside my head

Inside my head.

I sang for redemption
I sang for sympathy
I sang in silence
Now, I’m going to sing one for you and me
