Everything You Can't Change

They say good comes to those who wait
But what if the wait is so hard it tears you apart, makes your heart stop
What if there's no light in the tunnel, no one to turn to
It's crazy how the heart can affect your whole life
Can't breathe, can't see, you're so blind
Love is patient, love is kind
It's all a lie
It eats away like a cancer at the thoughts in your mind
Distance makes the heart grow fond but time makes memories fade
They slip away, every day it's a race to get back to the place where you felt safe
Where your soul was enslaved by the one that can take away all the pain
Now you feel like you'll go insane without them right there in your face
You'd give it all to go back to that night where everything was alright
She's there by your side
Smooth skin on your lips, softest kiss
Hands on her hips, pure bliss
Now you sit alone with clenched fists as blood drips from your wrists
You're filled with shame
You must carry all the blame for everything you can't change
That's right, suppress the pain
Just shove it all down
No emotion, don't make a sound
The urge is still real, the scars will never heal
You can feel people's eyes burn holes into your skin
The battle within, you can't win
It's a disease that consumes your whole being
Warped thoughts that you've been having won't go away like magic
Defeat this tragic war
Battle on, you are a soldier
Put on that coat of armor and carry the blame no more
