A Fate I’ve Sworn to Keep

A Fate I've Sworn to Keep

All I want to do is save you

From the breech inside of me.

I’m falling through the cracks

And I’m too proud to try and reach.

Oh the irony.

God, I wish I knew how to ask you to stay

To hand over the key to everything

And let you see the wound inside I buried deep.

 

 

I am just like a thief

Stealing away with your belief.

I sing and dance and speak

Like an actor on the stage;

Wearing a mask so I can hide.

Oh the irony.

God, I love you more than me

But I must melt the flesh

To stop the never-ending bleed.

 

My fate is to watch you walk away

Filled with all this hate.

From guilty gallows

I can’t escape.

And that’s okay.

 

Again and again

I bleed

Leaving you tired and far away.

It’s my reality.

Again and again

I make you bleed

Leaving you tired and far away

but that’s the reality I need you to see.

 

My fate is to watch you walk away

Tired and full of hate

From guilty gallows

I’m unwilling to escape

And that’s okay.

 

With every word I speak

I dig my heart and soul a grave.

This silent vow to you I make

Forever, I’ll rot beneath your hate.

And that’s okay.

It’s the fate I’ve sworn to keep.
