    Compass (Counterparts)

    Rate this media item:


    • The weight came and went and took my will to live
      Spoiled by defeat, forced to drown in what’s left of me
      That’s when breathing became routine
      And I could feel myself fading

      No direction, I am a compass
      Constantly spinning
      Constantly searching for the end
      Never reaching our destination
      But the goal was never when
      Or where
      Or who…
      It was only you

      I appeared in your arms as if I had been born there
      You promised you’d never let me go
      But I don’t know what I believe anymore
      Affection allowed me to let the light in
      The fear made me whole again
      Help me rebuild my broken bones
      Help me regain my sanity
      But with caution always present
      Our pasts manifest themselves
      And we act as if this is what we deserve
      But I refuse to fail again

      I’d force my ghost to write your name in the flowers on my grave
      I watched the world give up on me

      I used to spend my nights praying for air in my bloodstream
      Now I long to feel your breath pass throughout my arteries
      The goal was never when
      Or where
      Or who…
      It was only you

      I appeared in your arms as if I had been born there
      You promised you’d never let me go
      But I don’t know what I believe anymore
      Fill me with your faith and let me leave

      I’m scratching at my skin to take my mind
      Off the absence we’ve created
      The lines blur together like the veins in my arms

      And I wish I wasn’t so alone
      You are the difference between hell and home
