Watching life behind the eyes of innocence
Setting off
Tandem to the winds that you had left me in
And moving on
Destined to be more than just a castaway
So I thought
And grew among the thorns, until the harvest came
And they were gone

Left out
I played your games and took the vow
And waited, patient even now
You said
The pressure is the diamond’s test of time
The lesson’s worth the while along the line

Lies by candlelight as you said goodbye
Pried me open wide, left one thought inside
In everything I do
In everything I carried the flame for you

Peeling back the bubble that I’d hidden in
I recall
You said we’d be protected from the wicked men
Well, here they are
I never thought myself as one to lose my head
In it all
But it’s almost impossible to find the edge
Till you fall

Way down
I see myself through other eyes
As more than you could recognize
You said the pressure is the diamond’s test of time
Depression’s just another state of mind

And I just stood still for a while
And tried to turn the other cheek
Despite the knife you’re brandishing now
Cuz it all made sense for a while
I didn’t want to miss the chance that you
Might just be one more lie before the truth
