Such fools we were,

reckless as the rest,

as empty as no one believed,

to find someone who could act as cement

and hold together the pieces

would be a dream,


But you were just glue,

you made me feel whole,

until i got wet and the glue began to melt

the cracks are back

the walls are caving

and i need someone to save me


I want to be my own hero,

my own cement,

my own walls my own strength,

dont let no man or woman hold me up,

or down anymore.


People hurt, they get inside your head.

They’ll eat your heart out

be careful where you place your faith

be careful in what inspires you

Don't lose your pace
