lyrics

You asked me if i blamed you
asked me to describe what it was like
walking on the tight rope
during a tug of war of spite
friction burns from both sides
Left out in the cold and left in the fire
numb to crying eyes
and driven by my teenage desires
I was collateral damage
the point but not the point
moving the rock through the passage
That your god could never anoint
You came from bricks and closets
city faucets always running
holding onto your brother’s shirt for guidance
cause the world is blurry and the wolf is cunning


Running in your footsteps
looking back on who we were
Don’t need apologies
cause time has healed the hurt
I made my own way
because you pushed me out the door
I made my own way
because you pushed me out the door



I met you before you met yourself
we’ve walked oceans
since we’ve stopped to notice
funny how purpose makes
you see the truth while
the pain turns into focus
You raised me in limbo
halfway between my mother
and an honest heart
somethings will never change
but that’s because no one told you could take it all apart
Looking back I can’t react to what I didn’t know
I knew something was off
But I was always on the go
stumbling in dark rooms learning
how a woman’s shape is perfect
breaking down and breaking up
it wasn’t then but now it’s worth it

Running in your footsteps
looking back on who we were
Don’t need apologies
cause time has healed the hurt
I made my own way
because you pushed me out the door
I made my own way
because you pushed me out the door

Self absorbed self sufficient
self destructive pro self deficient
you were wandering on crossroads
the sign was there but you must have missed it
we share tempers we share failures
we share roots in a dying tree
But I’ve decided to plant my own
with these second chance seeds
No need to look back
We lived it once and that was enough
we have sins for every second
we got those scars and we’ve got that love
We are the architects of our cliches
we have the right to peace and health
You asked me if I blamed you
but I know I was caught in the middle of a war with yourself


Running in your footsteps
looking back on who we were
Don’t need apologies
cause time has healed the hurt
I made my own way
because you pushed me out the door
I made my own way
because you pushed me out the door
