lyrics

You cut me from a magazine
I didn’t know that I was in
you saw me
and gently traced the frame

With scissors and glue
at the table alone
you could make anything
but you’ve got business to attend to

I knew you were sad
I knew you weren’t you
You were searching for someone
You didn’t know who

I removed some chains
and added some new
It’s the way you need to be
I’m the the one you are bound 2

Life is just another thing to lose
in a cluttered room
but you know, you don’t have to

I hit you because
you wanted me to
Can’t tell anyone
unless it’s in song
The truth is
I wanted hit to you
with all that I had
just to see where you’d break

Save it for the day
when the summer fades
and the roads are closed

Save it for the heart
the one you wear
the one you guard

I never set out knowing exactly where we would go
I just knew somehow it was some place
that we had never been before

I could never leave
now that I’m here
it’s enough to make me think it’s where I was before I was born

Still, we know
this is not eternity

My circle
my promise
around my neck
forever

If I should
fall from this place
this mark
will keep me safe.
