I know things have changed; I no longer smell the sadness on my skin. I've been rearranged; I only think of where to go, not where I've been.
I don't feel the same even if the rain bombards my windowpane. I don't think the same way I did after the sun came up today.
If our ship begins to capsize, I know you'll be there saving me before I sink. If the water's stuck at high tide, I'll keep you close until we all can get to shore.
So long to all those love songs 'cause I've found some kind of safety for myself. "Stay strong", I tell myself in the mirror every day. I hope I've found the way.
Let's hoist the sails, let the wind carry us any which way (to the sunset or down to the ocean floor). We'll tell the tales. Our worst mistakes just make us who we are. (Let us sail the world together; let us go.)
