they cut you open to get at your heart
sounds like a metaphor for something but it’s not
like a bad memory lodged in your mind
with your eyes taped shut
a metaphor for blind
when you were coming out roads were closing up
fugitive kindness and love like raindrops
it was so much more than the physical
na na na na na na na na na na na na na
don’t break down 'til you get to the parking lot
keep it together until you’re in your car
betrayed by the promise of a child
that took away half your smile
this is not where you thought you’d ever be
when you finally made the move to leave
so many questions still remain
so many metaphors for pain
they cut you open to get at your heart
sounds like a metaphor for something but it’s not
like a bad memory lodged in your mind
with your eyes taped shut
metaphor for blind
when you were coming out roads were closing up
fugitive kindness and love just like raindrops
it was so much more than the physical
na na na na na na na na na na na na na
don’t break down 'til you get to the parking lot
keep it together 'til you’re safe in your car
betrayed by the promise of a child
that took away half your smile
this is not where you thought you’d ever be
when you finally made the move to leave
so many questions still remain
so many metaphors for pain
i can’t cry when i’m singing
open my eyes
made something to find
