Inner Tension

from by Martial



Are you really done?
Or are you just scared of what might be
Buried underneath this tension still between
You and me?
Cause whether nothing’s there
Or there’s just to much to bare and face

Then ignoring this won’t make it all go away
No, you’re not fooling anybody

It always brings me back to when you loved me too
How I never told you that I was happy to do
Those leaps and tricks over sharp sticks and through flaming hoops
Cause at least I had you
But these days
I often spend my time at night lying away
And this history of yours and mine my mind replays
An endless pursuit of what to do or say
To mend my mistakes

I just can’t let this go
We were both supposed to grow so old
Now all of my friends
Into each day’s end will say, “fold
Forget her”
But some things are easier said than done

(When you’re angry and pushing me away being)
(Malicious I always want to stay)
(Cause when you’re sleeping)
(You hold my arm so tight it shows you)
(Love me through spite)

Please don’t make me leave
(When you’re angry and pushing me away being)
Have you torn up your photos of me?
(Malicious I always want to stay)
I’m not ready to leave
(You hold my arm so tight I know)
You need me in the day light
