A song without a name (for a girl without shame)

I’m letting go, I’m letting go
Of all the things that used to
Keep me awake
I’m letting go, I’m letting go
Of all the memories of you
Take all your things
And leave this place

Let’s break it down
Into words that we can sing
This might just be the only way
My thoughts will ever reach you
Burn this false hope
I never thought that you
Could turn your back on what we had
And now I’m running just to

Find myself underneath the wreckage, somehow
As I break out of this mental prison, I am free

Tell me you’ll stay
If only for tonight
My eyes are sore from all these tears
There’s nothing left inside of here
Know what you did
Was so relentless
And I won’t forgive so easily
When you come crawling back to me

I pray for just one day, Oh God
Please let me escape
This is far too great for me to face alone
So if you think you’re happy
Then darling, why do you so often reassure yourself?
I know these words will break you
Don’t confuse yourself
They’re most certainly about you
At least I know, this song will be my victory
This is my victory

No more will I wait
To see you create
This truth in your eyes
I see your disguise

Hold on, nothing will ever change
Hold on, these memories still remain
Did you realise you’ve been fooled all this time
Now I am free we’re moving forward
Now I can breathe we’re falling head first
To the ground
