shut up you said i don’t want to fight
neither one of us ever turns out right
i don’t want to hear another word i don’t need you to commiserate about the way i don’t live up to how you thought i would live up to be

just live for now and hold on to me forget about any broken dreams always know i don’t want a day where i could die without you by my side

embrace me now, cause i need to know
what it feels like to believe in something better
just take my light hold it deep inside
know i found the strength i needed to recover

something in the sound that the silence brings
something in the way that you put your trust in me
everything here looks upside down feel my grip don’t look around
just look me in the eyes and tell me everything will just turn out alright

the bumps the breaks may never fade soak it up don’t hesitate
just run with arms spread wide with nothing covered naked nothing left to hide


from before the silence breaks, released August 1, 2016
Rouse, Carranza, James, Brewington, Frid-Rubin
