lyrics

Breakwall

You are the waves
And I’m the breakwall
Worn down and bare
I just sit here
Listen to the silence
When you’re still

Sometimes we collide and I dissolve
In shadows cast by car lights
We could just sit here
And listen to the silence
While we fall to pieces
Fall to pieces
Under starlight

I’m not sorry
I’m not sorry
I’m not sorry
Anymore

I leaned on you
And you gave way
You leaned on me
And I gave way

If you could be unbroken
I could live in you
Tucked away under your skin
Hidden like a secret
Whispered by a lover
When no one else can
No one else can hear

You are the waves
And I’m the breakwall
I’m the breakwall
I’m the breakwall

I leaned on you
And you gave way
You leaned on me
And I gave way

I leaned on you
And you gave way
You leaned on me
And I gave way
