An Easy Surrender

Awake again, another night
The memories of times when things were rational
Can’t forget, just wanna forget
All of the secrets kept to keep the lines drawn

But tonight, I can’t sleep and dishonor runs
Deeper than I thought
When all you have left to lose is the weakness
That you’ve been running from so long

Let it rain; let the water wash away every stain
I’d rather not remember
But they’ll stay, and I know that there’s a reason why I crave
An easy surrender

Time has gone, taking away
All those mistakes I made when I was just a child
What remains, so many regrets
The warning never said was think before you lie

Even now, I’m miles away and I can hear his voice
Saying the same phrase
For you, a thousand times over and here I am
A stone thrower shattering the blame

Let it rain; let the water wash away every stain
I’d rather not remember
But they’ll stay, and I know that there’s a reason why I crave
An easy surrender

I hope that distance makes it better
And I promise one day to read your letters
But for now, I’m letting go of “maybe”
So that I can be the one that saves me–finally

Let it rain; let the water wash away every stain
I’d rather not remember
But they’ll stay, and I know that there’s a reason why I crave
An easy surrender
