all that you are
all that you’ve been
all that you wanted to forget
you bury deep
where no one can see
and hope you can live with the regret
of holding your breath
searching yourself for a peace that could mend your broken homesomehow you defied all reason and rhyme
you’re like a flower that grows in stone

how could something so beautiful come from somewhere so unkind
you must have known when you had grown you could leave it all behind

and now you’re something so beautiful
now you are something so beautiful

a single grain
a water stain
things that time cannot erase
a tone of voice
a crashing noise
the stinging of hands upon your face

how could something so beautiful come from somewhere so unkind
you must have known when you had grown you could leave it all behind

and now you’re something so beautiful
now you are something so beautiful

black and blue lost its hold on you
you made it through, you’re still alive, you’re still alive

and now you’re something so beautiful
now you are something so beautiful
