To Lift Both Of Us


in these long nights, drawing up schemes

to push my body past my limitations

this brain has an inordinate amount of dreams

but how many am I really gonna achieve?

Can’t stand to be around you

for longer than ten minutes

unless you’re kinda cute

then maybe thirteen

but now it seems like I’m weird

and I am, but not like that

the further away I drive you

my path becomes lonelier, and now I see

that people can’t see through me

people just don’t know enough, cause I’ve been shattered

so I’m afraid to be open

I’m broken

and afraid to get put back together

I need you to see the other side

and you need me to take it higher

speaking out carries risk

but loving the shamed is greater

throwing lots into the ocean between us

someday I’ll be stronger

to lift both of us
