I was already dead when I lay down on it
although maybe that started from the moment I drew my first breath and let it go.
You have to be cruel to be kind they said
I thought I should cry forever
but it made them angry and it only made the sadness more.
I took it deeper inside me than they could see
and here it sings sweet and beautiful and strong
so when I turn away
it's my own heart that I want to break not yours
I want to know how to set love free.
