I built you up to be a giant
grand and gentle, fair and free
you’re not so different from me
human, flawed, and fragile
tears are flooding through the cracks
and so we shatter
oh, how we shatter.
I pick up the pieces
and clutch them in my arms
they’re sharp and they sting
and I bleed from within
but I fear that they are all I have left
they are all I have left.
I’m sorry to have lived in fantasy
clueless and forlorn in melancholy
this isn’t who I was meant to be
but who I was I can no longer see.
drifting further on endless night
there is no comfort in this sleight
let me fade away into the dark
and leave me until I’m torn apart.
