Lyrics

Can I whisper something in your ear?
I’m so afraid for you.
I feel all of this guilt for leaving you here.
But I just don’t know what to do.
I adore you from the bottom of my soul.
You changed my life in every way.
And I know I won’t be satisfied with how they care for you.
I’ll be thinking of you every day.
You have to be strong, you have to be so strong.
I wish you could make me such a promise.
But you’re so young, you’re just so fucking young
That you can’t even fathom the importance.
When I leave, it’s all up to you.
Your heart is made of solid gold.
Your family is as good as gone, my love.
I have to believe you will break the mold.

Baby, it’s not easy work at all,
but it’s worth every breath,
I promise you. And I promise I’ll be here for you
when you decide to make a break for it;
that’s the thing with family—
you leap to save and you leap to escape.
But if you stay on that winding path,
the elements will surely take back what’s theirs.
Just come to me, come to me if you ever get scared.
I wish you could make me such a promise.
But you’re so young, you’re so fucking young.
I hope to god you can tell the difference
between right and wrong,
when it comes down to it. Your heart is made
of solid gold. And our family is as good as gone.
That’s why I have to believe you’ll break the mold.

Because I climbed for miles and now I’m freefalling.
I jumped down from the rocks and into the ocean.
Now I’m swimming for shore, and they’ll never ever ever catch me.
I had the sun against me, now the waves behind me.
