lyrics

One night the rain and fog held our town
I asked you what to do
You said ‘Choose the things that you can leave behind
and take the rest with you’

I left the house late that very night
my only guidance was the pale moonlight
I must have read a thousand rhymes
and I must have walked a thousand miles

Sometimes I can’t help thinking of the past
and how little that I knew
How long this journey was bound to last
and how I’d make it without you

Sometimes I wear it off in solitude
and when I don’t know what to do
I close my eyes and try my best
not to remember you

I tend to look for someone else to blame
Someone to carry my weight of the shame
But the words that I can’t leave behind
are those you buried in my mind

‘The more you struggle, the more you find
My hands are tied now, but yours are free’
That’s what you said to me
So now I look for someone else to blame
Someone to carry my weight of the shame
