lyrics

I’ve sounded out my greatest fear (Don’t move!)
Stepping out to the silent spotlight
(Who made) me the ideal person for this?
(I can’t hold) you all in my hands any more.
I can’t give up, I can’t distance myself.

I’m not the person that these people seem to hold me to
I’ve gone so far to get where I’ve already been
These cries of guilt will strip my throat raw and my shame bare
And leave me empty, screaming hopelessness and hate.
I’m not a martyr, I just want to be the honest one;
It isn’t getting any easier for me
To sing the songs that they all sing with open arms
Of what we are and what we wanted to be.
But I have tried, I have been tried and I’ve been tested
By broken mirrors that we still can’t see our best in.
I’m only half of you, but I still have that heavy heart;
We’re both like fractions but we’re so far apart
(Like we always were)
My disguise (stay silver)
Falls apart (gold has gone)
In your eyes (stay silver)
I’ll be yours (gold has gone)
