The Bending
Branch

Previous

We are the bending branch
Alive with a pulsing love
A pulsing love with a life of its own
But its a strength that goes unnamed
A strength that goes unheard
Until the branch is scathed
(Its always about to break)
But we only bend
It’s hard to comprehend
The force that keeps us hanging on

In our endless cycle of rebirth
Orbiting lovers buried under the earth
Your hands reach inside me
Hold my neck from behind my chest
Through my skin
From within
Can’t tell where one ends
And the other begins

You hold me close
Like you’ll never let go
But you never let me know
The depth of your love
Love
You say you don’t know what it is
I wish you’d pay attention when I show you
For we are the warmth at the bottom of the sea
But you never swim beside me

In our endless cycle of rebirth
Orbiting lovers buried under the earth
Your hands reach inside me
Hold my neck from behind my chest
Through my skin
From within
Can’t tell where one ends
And the other begins

And now our branch is in the sea
I hold my breath to sink in
To reach the heat
I try not to think about it
I’m free and warm
But alone
But in love
But alone
But I’m the one
I almost lost myself
Drowning in your sea
But I am alive
With a pulsing love
Having to break my own heart
To break that branch
And breaking the fucking cycle
