My heart broke 
like the sea I remember 
Sun drops low, 
sinks into September 

My heart choked
when I saw your face 
It sent shivers of pain 
To rivers of grace

I've felt the knife 
pieces of shattered glass
color my skin 
til it pooled and ran
in small, red rivers 

I've felt the shame 
it knows my full name 
I feed the drama 
I swim in trauma 

I'm starving 
and nothing fills me up 
My heart is sick 
I love me 
And I hate me 
turn, and keep turning

I turn to you, my strong father
I thought for a minute I wasn't your daughter 

I turn to you, my living water 
my terrifying savior 
nothing is comfortable 
nothing is easy 
nothing is safe 
but your joy I have tasted

stress the potion
the devotion 
navigate this 
redirect and don't negate 
the fact that I am calibrating 
every word you're celebrating 
every source and sorcerer 
little sleep and little peace 
we're trying just to understand
trying just to fall asleep 
all the new perspective 
driving back from dallas 
we're drinking every bottle
in the basement of the palace
