Harbor by Touché Amoré
Call it a learning process,
and I’ve never been that quick
because I take things as they come
and I respond how I see fit.
But it’s easy to get distracted
as I’ve been living life abroad,
I’m starved for your acceptance
and I work for your applause.
I’d always envisioned myself as a giver
but as I reflect I’ve left something to be desired.
Not that my heart hasn’t ever delivered
but that it’s never felt this inspired;
to have direction, to feel complete,
to embrace affection to end all the woe is me,
but mainly to harbor the love that I have to give.
But for tonight let’s just stay inside,
well it’s far too loud and I just want quiet,
and if we die before we wake I’ll blame it on the past mistakes
Without you I’m not pure
and without you I’m not clean,
but if I’m going down with you
Then you’re going down with me.
What I’m afraid of is what is certain and
what I’m sure of is that it’s on me,
But I’m too tired to be that person
and that person needs to be set free.
To harbor the love that I have to give.
