about

This song was written from a song prompt. I honestly don't remember the prompt but the song was an emotional one for me as I was thinking about the anger that comes with feeling helpless. It was a reflection on how we act in the face of fear and how that can make us even more vulnerable.

lyrics

Don’t shoot I am unarmed
All I have are words
Breaking in my heart
Jagged edges on the inside
Carve and cut me open wide
I'm too wounded to fly
Tired of the tireless fight

Don’t shoot I am unarmed
In remembrance of the fear
underneath these scars
All the anger’s on the outside
Holding back the tears
stonewall of pride
and I’m in over my head
Drowning in the tears unshed

The moral of the story
Is we live and die
by what we find within
And the lesson to be taken
With some small consolation
is we’re born for more than this

Don’t shoot I am unarmed
If all we are is waiting
On the worst to come
Then it’s gonna be a hard cry
Longer than a long time
And I'm tired of being afraid
to be buried in the beds we made

The moral of the story
Is we live and die
by what we find within
And the lesson to be taken
With some small consolation
is we’re born for more
than this
More than this
More than this

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
