You walked away with nothing
Save a pocket filled with change
It’s so strange - I took for granted
This life we had arranged

And you told me you were missing me
But the world had missed you more
So the floor is where I writhe while you
Sail on a different shore

Are you free?
Are you alone?
Have you lost your way home?
Has the sand inside your shoes
Made you lose your steady gait?
I can’t wait to see you again
But I know we can’t pretend
That you’re trying not to lose the you, you are

Will you see a thousand pictures
That were drawn before we were?
It’s a blur - the time we’ve wasted
Love’s spell became our curse

We were never really promised
That we’d even be alive
And our thriving is the very thing
That tears us up inside

You aren’t free
You’re never alone
But these rooms don’t make this a home
When these doors have been ignored
By years of disrepair
I’m so scared I’ll lose you now
But I promise I’m not far
For I will always love the you, you are

Are you trying not to lose the you, you are?
You will never ever lose the you, you are
