Take me away to a place where my heart can be free
And your memories don’t have to haunt me
Take me away to a place where my heart doesn’t have to live with disappointments
And it’s easy to move on
Take me away from leaving and change, fear and instability
Float all that down the river and leave me sitting in the sunshine
In peace and warmth
Soaking up happiness into every pore
And feeling it down to my bones
I want to leave the uncertainty and change
The instability and the lies
You seem to imply I enjoy living like this
And I do not appreciate your insinuations
Leave me sitting in the sunshine
In peace and warmth
And maybe consistency can be absorbed by osmosis
Do you think stability is a God given right?
That sense of entitlement doesn’t fit you well.
I think you need to go back to your tailor
For not everyone was blessed with a household so perfect, so cookie cutter
So warm and loving like the sun I long for you to leave me sitting
In peace and warmth
Sometimes that sun that felt so right and warm and perfect
Will even burn you in the end
So watch where you place your chair
And what river you float your cares down
Because every river may have its’ own leeches that linger
Just beyond the surface
