This Too Shall Pass [with audio]

*spoken word*

He looks to me
but he doesn’t see me
He talks to me
but he doesn’t hear me
He’s in front of me
but we’re a million miles apart
Our hearts
are beating to a different tune

Everyone thinks that it’ll be fine soon
just open up and tell him,
it’ll be okay,
this too shall pass
But it won’t,
it will last and last…

Relief [with audio]

*spoken word*

Sleeping next to you
We don’t say the words we need
The nights get lonely
Would it be easier living without me

You watch as I tumble down
You watch as I fall to the ground
Would you pick me up and piece me back together
Would you stand me up and love me forever

Am I someone you want
Am I someone you need
Are you happy now
Or are we part of the lost and found

You watch me as I crawl on the floor
You watch me as I beg for more
Would you give me some relief
