What were we supposed to do?
Love was a luxury we couldn’t afford.
And now time stands still for me,
Every ripple in my heart, it is a conspiracy.
Stay still, don’t put a price on this setting sun,
I chose to spend the night, in a world with no warnings and signs.
I surrender to the words of the wind and tonight.
The waves renew my life. I made mistakes, but I tried,
I tried to be something that I didn’t want to be.
There’s a child, a child in me who took the high road when given a choice.
He didn’t get far, but now he’s out in the wild.
It might take him a while; he’ll grow up on his terms this time.
And I just, I keep running, to find the words, the words I like,
the words to close the book on who I become this time.
