Burn Away


Maybe my emotions got the best of me
Maybe the attraction made it so I can't see
Maybe I'm jumping in way too rapidly
Or maybe it's the real thing

Maybe now I am no longer all alone
Maybe you could be the place that my heart calls its home
Maybe here is where I am not lost but I am known
And you'll end the war in these bones

Now all I want is just a drink of water
To quench the fire left burning by my father
I pour my soul out onto this broken altar
And hope it all just burns away

And now you call me your family
A thing that I've never known or felt or even seen
Or ever hoped I'd have even in all my wildest dreams
Now you say it belongs to me?

The contradictions all stack up
Tightening the chains I thought already fell off
Tell me was it worth all it cost
To trade the world for the soul that you lost?

Now all you want is just a drink of water
To quench the fire left burning by your father
So pour your soul out onto this broken altar
And hope it all just burns away
