You take as if I never meant to give
You retreat when nows the time to really live
You forget when all I ask is you forgive
You shine a light when the coast it isn’t clear

I regret but I’ll change another year
You can fret but I’m still around to cheer
I did laugh but instead you saw a tear
We could try but you took a different road

Our lives tied to the lies that we sold
I could love but I’m really not that bold
Their touch it has always been so cold
It was never a dwelling where I could survive

I live in a shell but I’m barely alive
My feet are planted and ready to thrive
I may be depressed but I’ll likely revive
