For you to bring me home.
But your wings were black.
How could you just turn your back?
Drowning, sinking into the depths.
Falling, falling, too dark to see.
I reach blindly, desperately.
Where was your hand to rescue me?
I ran home with blistered feet,
The lights were out, no one home.
The walls echoed as I screamed your name.
Please help me, I’ve lost my way.
So maybe there’s a part of you inside,
But I’ll always hold my head in pride.
Because everything I am is because of me.
I swam out of the dark to safety.
