I peel back the staples
I’m leaving a space where your frame used to hang
I’m leaving holes in the wall and holes in my heart
now let’s begin at forgetting and we’ll end at forgotten
I’ll be forgotten as soon as you let go...let go
seeing you today was like losing you all over again
I know I said I wouldn’t ask but does it have to be this way?
empty the locket and throw it beneath the bed
along with the things you wish you could forget
I swear I’m under there somewhere
now let’s begin at forgetting and end at forgotten
I’ll be forgotten as soon as you let go...let go
I’ll forget just to stay alive
and God’s plan winds but his faithfulness is at every bend
and straightaway to get away from reality
reality without you

    General Commenti have it. but you posted that like a year ago sooo yeah

    and God’s plan winds but his faithfulness is at every bend
    and straightaway to get away from reality


    i like that
    but im not sure i totally get the end part
    God will always be there for you...
    even in the bad times [bends]
    and good [strightaways]
    but the reality part?

    General CommentThe reality part makes sense to me. Adjusting to life without her because before his reality was very much about and with her. God is helping him reach that. It's hard to accept something like that that flips your world upside down.
