The Same

lyrics

I lay your bones beside the river
Water washes over your ashes and your skin
I think of all the times I let you in
I take your heart, your beating heart
To the home we used to live in
Water washes over my feet, carries me downstream

And in the end, all is known
All the cards have been shown
And this is not a winning kind of game
When you drowned yourself in alcohol
I just knew
I’d never be the same, no

There are times you’re still inside me,
your voice still rattles through the halls
Echoing out of your room, bouncing off the walls
So I drink this one in memory
Of the good times, long gone,
And the ones that linger on and on

This is my heart, my beating heart
And it still loves you through the pain
I tried to stop, tried to stop
Still it loves you all the same
I enter through my wound
To follow you to your grave

In the end, all is known,
All the cards have been shown
And this is not a winning kind of game
When you drowned yourself in alcohol
I just knew
I’d never be the same
This is my heart, my beating heart
And it still loves you through the pain
I tried to stop, tried to stop
Still it loves you all the same
I enter through my wound
To follow you to your grave
