A grain of truth
That weighed me down
In the deep waters
Of our love
I let myself
Be washed away
With sacrifices
That I make

How swiftly childhood passes
They are not little for very long
You watched them take their every step
And now you must let go
You must be strong

Stars on a ceiling and some photographs
Those memories ring true
Now they are coming of age
Taking big steps
Moving to the next stage
And most of what they do
They do it, without you

They used to need you for everything
Now that’s seen as interfering
But you’re still there when it falls apart
When someone breaks a heart
For every fresh step
For every false start

And now what’s left for us?
When the dust has settled
A fresh step, another new beginning
Another test of metal

Back to two instead of four
Not that they won’t be around anymore
It’s just different
It’s changed



Spite and lies upon his lips
Words and blood from his mouth spits
I was a puppet at his finger tips
I was just a kid

I took his sin, he took my hits
If anyone deserves this, he did
But still it’s me left broken inside
Even at the turning of the tide

Manipulation was his game
He knew how to work my shame
Which way to twist the knife
He knew how to shatter a life

In revenge there was no glory
Just another chapter in my sordid story
Once I swallowed every lie
And became the boy dead inside

The final twist was the worst of all
Truth from lies, I can’t tell at all
The doctor says, it can’t be true
The needles leave me black and blue

Yet the baron girl she haunts me still
I guess she always will
Some thing’s can’t be undone
Even when a victories won
