head north – brave hands lyrics

Loading...

believed that i was made from frail and broken things
and i’m scared that’s all i’ll be
i fell hard to the ground as a child and cut up my knee
saw my father’s blood as it poured out
the first gift i ever received
i felt it sting and the spit of the sea
as the waves rose up to comfort me
and they said, so softly
“you don’t have to feel alone like this
come inside, let us take you”

it’s too late to forgive
what’s done is done
i’ll leave and forget
i hope you pay for what you did

you gave me my name
just a spark that’s spit out from forever’s flame
with a grudge and a note that’s attached to our family’s blood
that says, “i tried so hard to be a good man
i tried so hard to get it right
i tried so hard to be better than my father
give you a better life than mine”

and i dreamed that i’d be met with brave and loving hands
they’d set me free from who i’d been
make me at peace with who i am
you said you’d stay, but they dug a hole
i wish i forgave you before we lost your soul

believed that i was made from frail and broken things
and i’m scared that’s all i’ll be
