Did you see the barren peaks?
Did you see the searing heat?
Did you see the birdless cage that you have become?

Did you see servitude?
Did you see the shoulder-length hair
That lent all its radiance to somebody else

You stormed out of who you were
To follow her
Those moments you could not hold
Still held you

Your pretense
Your nightingale
You can't unveil what you want

Did you bare your innocence?
As sorely as I did my guilt?
Did you ever forgive yourself for shedding that pain?

Did you love her honestly?
Did you love her approximately?
Say no other privilege to feeling complete?

So what's this for?

You stormed out of who you were
To follow her
Those moments you could not hold
Still held you

Your conscience
Your nagging guilt
You can't expel yourself

If I've held out, for you holding me sinfully
Was that sinful of me?

And if you want me to waste all your precious time
You can waste all of mine

And I won't lie anymore than you ask me too
I'm just asking for you

And I'll be fine if we never wake up from this
