Rosewater

It keeps raining in my head
Even though I blame the weather
You could come for me oh, Death
If you didn’t know me better
I’ll be gone when the sun comes up
As my hands brace against the ivy walls
Tears would fall like water from weighted clouds
If I could care at all
You don’t speak to me anymore
This sickness inside me kept alive
Drown my face in all my shame
I didn’t know much better than to run and hide
The love I used to speak becomes harder to see
But I don’t want to open my eyes
My heart’s been rattled enough to know
I’m terrified of saying my goodbyes
Lay me down or shut me out
Lower than I can go on my own
This is the way things break
When you have no depth left to go
How painful life’s pace can be
Do you remember when we met
I’m afraid that all my favorite memories
Are just the things I can’t forget
And it keeps raining in my head
Even though I blame the weather
You can come for me oh, Death
If only I knew me better
