"Release From Sorrow"
Oh humility, humility
Why do we always meet when I’m at my greatest dis-ease?
I keep my distance and yet you follow
ready to deliver my relief.
I push away, I push away,
but you've come to stay, knowing that I need you.
A common grace in a commonplace
overlooked like the path I took, leading to our meeting.
Oh, bittersweet sorrow,
Hold me and tell me how good things used to be,
how great they could have been
and how I’ll never know.
I know you because I was loved
I got to know you more because push came to shove
and I didn't repay what I owe.
Locked inside my own emotions
Unable to see past my own mistakes
I got too friendly with regret
I've gone too far to stay.
I see two faces in your one
I want to watch them grow old
but I know the potential for that moment is done
our meal has gone cold.
Transformations you've undergone,
inertia I must overcome
Skulls on my pillow,
I needed the darkness to get to know the sun.
