Someone To Say It To

from by Ellery

lyrics

I’m afraid I’ll never be
strong enough to carry me
Such a long and desert ride
So quick ahead, so few beside

I don’t think I’ve ever felt
a peace when I am by myself
These darker rooms and silences
leave most of us afraid, I guess
And hoping with each passing mess
we’ll feel it all a little less
Hoping with each passing mess
we’ll feel it all a little less

The best things are the hardest sell
We mostly love, then run like hell
It’s easier to let it go -
to leave before you’re left alone
So every friend looks like a foe,
and every bow feels like blow
So every friend looks like a foe,
and every bow feels like blow

Maybe I’ve said far too much
These stories aren’t for young and trusting
little souls who fall asleep
with foes and blows drawn in their dreams
So take a breath and let it be
We’ll say it’s all just make-believe
Take a breath and let it be
We’ll say it’s all just make-believe

I’m afraid I’ll never be
strong enough to carry me
I don’t mean to frighten you
Just need someone to say it to
