Open Wounds

Slashed so hard and left to heal
with nobody around
and nothing left to feel

Gashes across my heart gape open
there is nothing to say,
words left unspoken

It’s just temporary pain,
that’s risking exposure.
I just need something to gain
back my sanity and composure.

I need a band-aid,
something to heal this wound.
starting to fade
can never be saved
starting to feel I’m doomed
I need a band-aid
just momentary bliss
seal together my heart
go back to the start
so I don’t call it quits.
I need a band-aid.

Drowning in tranquility
don’t care if it’s unreal
I’ve lost my sensibility

Suddenly struggling to breathe
comfort quickly wears off
and I’m hiding beneath

It’s just temporary pain,
that’s risking exposure.
I just need something to gain
back my sanity and composure.

I need a band-aid,
something to heal this wound.
starting to fade
can never be saved
starting to feel I’m doomed
I need a band-aid
just momentary bliss
seal together my heart
go back to the start
so I don’t call it quits.
I need a band-aid.

Simple sliver of latex and cotton
mend together my wounds
make sure I’m never forgotten
through all the darkest of moons.
Heal my deepest sorrows
stitch together my regrets
make sense of my tomorrows
help me come to accept

It’s just temporary pain,
that’s risking exposure.
I just need something to gain
back my sanity and composure.

It’s just a band-aid
It’s just a band-aid
You’re just my band-aid
