the worst way

your word was good
your vow was true
you had the strength
to see it through
you made your stand
you made it art
sew up your chest
you have your heart

the things you want
that you cannot change
hang on too tight
they will bring you pain
it’s not your death
it doesn’t feel like life
find a brand new dream
and sleep tonight
you want her still
and in the worst way
but the truth you deny
has had its say
this isn’t your victory
it isn’t your defeat
so let it go
and finally let it be
