Light the flame, curse my name
Tell me it could be the same
Try your best to hide the shame
Let me take all of the blame.
I thought I knew you…
I thought that I could shelter you.
Reduced to rubble, now I see
That you were- I thought- home to me.
I’ll flicker until I burn out like you wanted.
Just let go, let go!
I think to myself most every night.
But you’re a fire I can’t put out.
I pray you’ll find your satisfaction
In my ashes, scattered on the breeze.
