about

This is an open letter to an old version of someone I had to let go of.

lyrics

I never said I was an angel
I never meant to be your hero
You got a secret that I couldn't tell
I'm real good at keeping things to myself

You and me
No one else
Treat me well
Keep me close
I supposed

You keep your makeup on the top shelf
Right with your jewels and inner wisdom
Cause you're always leaning on me
Reaching

Tell me if you can't make it

I wanna give
Wanna get
Wanna bet
Wanna dream
Wanna love but I can't yet

I gotta wait
Gotta stay
Gotta know
If I'll see you
When I wake up

I really want to wait up
But this feels made up

I wonder how much of my power
Slipped through your hands
So I'm careful now
I'm there for now
I've made my amends

You made me your friend
But I don't intend

There's a special kind of loneliness
That holds me down and wraps my chest
I think about when we first met

"I'll be back, don't you cry" you said

And sent away my trust
Packed on your back
And stuck in your dust

So I brought it back myself
With no fear of being left alone

I wanna give
Wanna get
Wanna bet
Wanna dream
Wanna love but I can't yet

I gotta wait
Gotta stay
Gotta know
If I'll see you
When I wake up

I really want to wait up
But this feels made up

Angel
