The same person

November 6, 2014

We were the same person
At different times
You held your ground
And I was out of line
You told me to look both ways
But don’t speak
Touching from a distance was my escape
It was my escape
It was my escape

All I wanted was to know you better
Rain or shine
And in the perfect weather
All I wanted was to know you better
Rain or shine
And in the perfect weather

You were afraid
And I was scared
It always seemed like you’re never prepared
You blinded me
To the pain
Beneath your cover I could see your shame
Wash me clean
Purify my eyes
It’d be too bold
To say
You were a liar
I just wanted to know you still cared
Wanted you to act like I was here
I disappeared
I ran away
But from you I can’t escape
I can’t escape

We were the same person
At different times
You held your ground
And I was out of line
You told me to look both ways
But don’t speak
Touching from a distance was my escape

You were wrong
But I wasn’t right
It always feels like I live in fright
I wanted to hear those words
I chocked up with the story you told
I couldn’t cry because it was too late
But I forgive of your mistakes
For your mistakes
