Begin Anew

 

I held your hand and wiped your tears

Whispering lies we both longed to believe

I wish I’d had more to offer than all these years

But the hollow space within me is within you, too

We didn’t know the path to happiness

But let’s both pretend now that we do

We’ll just peel another layer of skin off

(we are tough enough)

And begin anew
