Trash Boat – The Guise Of A Mother lyrics

[Verse 1]
I often wonder if we met today
Would you even recognize my face?
We could talk through our demons with steps retraced
Help me to understand your space
All I saw for years was red
Focus my gaze, time elapsed
Pen hits the page and I regret the act
Nine years of writing so angry, misguided

[Chorus]
Echoes in the canyon sing
I don’t owe you anything
It’s done between you and me
Echoes in the canyon sing
"You don’t owe her anything"
"You don’t owe her anything"

[Bridge]
You buried me, submerged the seed
You buried me, submerged the seed
A lesson learned never again will I go down so easily

[Verse 2]
Tough to break through venom you spewed
What did you do? Tell me the truth
Manipulation in the guise of a mother
Some things can never be yours to take
To force forgiveness harbours pain like no other
My hands remain steady inside I shake

[Chorus]
Echoes in the canyon sing
I don’t owe you anything
It’s done between you and me
Echoes in the canyon sing
"You don’t owe her anything"
"You don’t owe her anything"

Echoes in the canyon sing
I don’t owe you anything
It’s done between you and me
Echoes in the canyon sing
"You don’t owe her anything"
"You don’t owe her anything, anything"

[Outro]
Echoes in the canyon sing
I don’t owe you anything
It’s done between you and me
Echoes in the canyon sing
"You don’t owe her anything"
"You don’t owe her anything, anything"

[Over-Outro]
You buried me, submerged the seed
A lesson learned never again will I go down so easily
