Emery – The Anchors lyrics

And it hurt just to touch,
On the words I said too much.
I was just a kid.
I thought that I could not be caught and much less by a moment,
But the words came flooding from my mouth.

Some things will never surface,
They capsized so long ago.
I didn't want to still be sinking,
But the anchor, won't let me go.

Those things that we thought, were never there.
Those ghosts we brought with us everywhere.

From your birth you were born in to this,
Never knowing when the walls would crack.
In your defense you were so unprepared you,
Said the things that you can't take back.

Those things that we thought, were never there.
Those ghosts we brought with us everywhere.

I want to explain this,
But nothings making sense,
There's poison in my blood.
(There's poison in my blood)
It claimed both of our lives,
That world we thought important,
Crumbled into nothing.

Will words define me? I am more than a moment.
Will words define me? I am more than a moment.
That day behind me, but I cannot shake it.
I am more than a moment, more than a moment.

And the beauty left my eyes,
I was standing there with the rest of my life.
Knowing I would never be the same,
Knowing I had changed.
I had become more than what I had dreamed.
The look of the youth but with hands stained,
The look of the youth but with my hands stained.

Tell her I'm sorry,
Tell her I'm sorry,
Does she know I'm sorry?
Guilty, guilty, I am guilty.

How were those words in my head (I am so sorry for what I have done)
For somebody else, somebody else?
I wish that I would have said (they all asked me why and I know)
Anything else, anything else (I know I still can't stop myself)

I want to explain this,
But nothings making sense.
There's poison in my blood.
(There's poison in my blood)
It claimed both of our lives,
That world we thought important,
Crumbled into nothing.

But the bitter treasures is so elementary.
