lyrics

Back in the day you built a labyrinth of home and jealous eyes
You used the absence of a thread to keep me lost inside
My vision black, my wrists and ankles tied
And in my head the path is blurred
But I did make it out alive
With broken bones, heavily bruised
But I will be fine

In secret books I hid the words
I didn't dare to say to you
I was a mess with burning doubts
If what my instincts said was true
Over and over, fallen through

Back in the day you made me vow that I would forever stay
It took me years to gather courage up to disobey
You didn't mean to do me harm, but you did anyway

And in the past I kept it hid
I was uncertain and ashamed
But time has passed and I see clearer now
Imprints of teethmarks fade
The empty cage beneath my shirt
Now filled with love instead of heavy weight
And on the empty stage of life
We go our separate ways

And I don't want to be your friend
Don't want to know where you are now
While I am mending the amends
You made while I was still around

In secret codes I spell the words
That I don't dare to say out loud
It hurts so much to realise
That they will never be found
The truth will stay buried in sound.
