In the morning I am empty,
Of everything I used to be,
I will ride away the feeling
So no one will ever read,
If I had all of the answers,
I could poor salt on my wounds,
I could fill this room with sorrow,
So no one would ever see,

[Chorus]
I want to wake up and drink from your river,
I want to reach out and tear down the sky,
To know I'm alive,
I want to learn how to feel without bleeding,
I want to learn how to live by your side,
You're no longer mine.

Wow,
We got to swim against the tides of each other,
Find the other side of the river, and wow

If I offered you a picture,
And the paint is yet to dry,
Could you live with just a whisper,
A flower is meant to die,
If I had all of the answers,
I could poor salt on my wounds,
I could fill this room with sorrow,
So no one would ever see,

[Chorus]

And wow, we gotta swim against the tides of each other,
Find the other side of the river,
And wow, we gotta swim against the tides of each other,
Find the other side of the river.

    General CommentNo comments? This is a beautiful song... It's got that raw, intense feeling in it which just makes me want to cry..

    This is /just/ how I feel at the moment. With a holiday coming up, I can't Self Harm, but I need to because I've been messed around by a male, leaving me really angry with myself.

    But yes, a gooood song. :)
