The storm continues to rage
As I hide in the back of the cave.
Hoping all of this doesn’t end up
With me in an empty grave.
Shires spill up around
Your voice with that Scottish accent.
Hold to that at times, my dear
Then decide I should repent.
Nobody will ever know my secret
As I pretend to be aware
It happens to be quite painful
But not really enough to share.
As if time split our lives in half
Sharing secrets we never reveal.
I’d like to say you’d go willingly
But I know I’d need to steal.
While crying one night over lies
You told me we’d never part.
I always knew where to end up
I just never knew where to start.
Today I’ll pretend to be here
But you know where I am.
Life circles around the lies
And I, its sacrificial lamb.
