City Of Ashes – Waves lyrics

My ego keeps me grounded
So I don't slip below
All the hurt you've caused is nothing
If I don't let it show
And if you see me smile
Hiding scars beneath my skin
Don't come too close cause I can't cope
Enough to let you in
I gave up my experience
To put this down in verse
The lies we told are all I hold
To separate my from this curse

What are you waiting for?
When all we used to hold so dear
Has fallen to the floor

This heaving room is empty
If I can't see your face
The noise is silence' empathy
Cause I can't hear your name
Mistakes we spoke are all I hold
To keep these lungs alive
The fire stoked, the bridges broke
To separate as we chose sides.

And I can't change the snake you are
Or time that's passed me by
So I'm left to lay awake
'Til voices in my head subside
No, I can't change the snake you are
Or turning of the tide
It's washed away the lies I wore
'Til I am all that's left inside.
