Wind Through Sand

 

I was never looking for someone to come save me

I know I’ve slipped far beyond that

You were never the knight in shining armor type

Maybe I loved you because of that

 

I wasn’t looking for a solution to my problems

Only a remedy to ease their pain

I gave you everything I could

Focused on you to keep me sane

[But you’re no solution, you’re no hero

You’re no knight

There was never any doubt

That I’m alone in this fight

If someone said give me your wallet

And put a gun to my head

You wouldn’t even claim my body

Once I was pronounced dead]

I didn’t want you to be my hero

I just wanted you to hold my hand

But when I reached out for you, you let me fall

Forever altered, like wind through sand

 

A million pieces, scattered across pavement

There’s no putting them back together now

I collected what I could and shaped anew

You wouldn’t even recognize me now.

[Because you’re no solution

You’re no hero, you’re no knight

There was never any doubt

That I’m alone in this fight

If someone said give me your wallet

And put a gun to your head

You wouldn’t even claim my body

Once I was pronounced dead]

The pieces fit together just a little tighter

But that just means I’m harder to break

Day by day I convince myself

That I don’t care your love was fake

 

I wouldn’t be where I am now

If it weren’t for you then

But given another chance

I would do it all again

[Even though you’re no solution

You’re no hero, you’re no knight

There was never any doubt

That I’m alone in this fight

If someone said give me your wallet

And put a gun to your head

You wouldn’t even claim my body

Once I was pronounced dead]
