Before the Ash has Time to Settle

by Therapy Session

I’m giving up on you I think that’s what you wanted me to do Never again will I hold my breath For a love that’s transient at best Happiness is the life you buy It doesn’t matter if it’s a lie But my account is running thin I’m running out of things to believe in If you can’t find where you belong Lose yourself in another sad song When there’s no one left to love you This feeling will give you something to belong to I made another losing bet It was all or nothing So I doubled it up And bet on someone trusting Can’t you see that I can only lose I’m the vessel and she’s the muse Trade my happiness for another song How long can this keep going on Another feeling faded and gone Turned into notes of another sad song Turned into words on another blank page These will last as her love will fade So I’m behind a guitar Or a blank page Go ahead and destroy me It will only create Something for me to love A feeling that seems like home Go ahead and leave me My true love will never leave me alone.
On a Cold Winter Night I think about the year gone by And i think this one, just might Bring me someone right But last year I had the same wish And now as the ball drops there’s no one to kiss And I thought this last one, she would be it but now I’m back to feeling like this Standing alone outside in the cold And someone says to me You can’t give up so easily Finding someone is tough But you can’t ever give up And I said: I don’t think anyone could give up On finding someone to love I don’t think anyone could give up On finding someone to love It’s what drives us to go on And as this year ends another’s begun
I’m waiting for something to go wrong ’cause I’m not used things going well for this long I don’t know where this will go And maybe I’m afraid to know But when I think about walking away Every piece of my body begins to break It’s about god damn time for happiness And I think I’m finally getting used to it But I don’t know where this will go And maybe I never wanted to know… …So bad To figure out exactly what it is we have I don’t know where this will go But baby I never wanted to know… …So bad exactly what it is we have So I’ll stick around as long as I can I hope you’ll stick around too as long as I am
It’s time to pick up the pieces that you left Buried in my chest I should have known from the empty heart locket around your neck You could fill in the meaning as needed, but you just hold close your debt It’s not that you want more Just nothing at all I couldn’t be more hopeless You’d take nothing over my best You don’t want a ring around your finger, tied to a chain Then why are you so afraid, I’ll run away You sell your stocks while they’re still rising, cause you’d rather chose To give up something before it hurts too much to lose You said I’m just a wall, Then turn around, there’s a door You want me to pour out my blood To prove I’m not made of wood Well I saw you reaching for the door ’cause the one thing you want even more Than to have my heart on your sleeve Is to go while it’s easy
