Wanderer

lyrics

she lived her life a worthless wanderer
sinking deeper into hollowness that swallowed her
wanting love but only ever was a lover
she laid you down in a bed
that was too small for you both

she was nothing in your eyes, nothing
lost and dying, desperate to be

you would wipe away her tears
tell her love's the part of her that disappeared
said you'd bleed for her
you would die for her, if only she would give you
what you deserved
find her place behind your tender words

while you, yourself
had fallen out of reach
as if every whispered truth was somewhere
beyond speaking

and as you took her to her bed
you said turn out the light
you didn't wish to see the trust in her eyes
and as you took her she cried out
a desperate, keening wail
it ripped up all the barest walls you'd built for yourself
and you could see inside

and out of your darkness came redemption
a home for her that she made out of you
and from her embrace you found a starting place
a life made entirely new
